I'm still playing catch up from Lotusphere (maybe next weekend, after some of the adrenaline subsides I'll play "rest up") but I wanted to pop in here for a quick blog post. WOWWW. That was an amazingly insanely fantastic Lotusphere experience. Thanks to all of you!
For those of you that were not at Lotusphere that are loyal blog readers, Sametime has gone Social and is going to the Super Bowl The very beginning of the closing session was a demo of Sametime being utilized at the Superbowl for real time security communications. This is a clear example that Sametime or UCC is the "Action" in a Social Network.
Imagine the challenge of keeping over 100,000 people safe with a vast array of emergency teams ready to respond and take action at one of the most popular events of the year. You need a real time communications system to take action right now and reach the right person and get the right response.
This is a social network with real implications. Traditionally you have multiple agencies operating on different systems and on different radio frequencies. We bring these disparate systems together with a solution called Radio Connect from UnifiedEdge based on IBM Sametime Standard.
UnifiedEdge's RadioConnect for Sametime has been successfully deployed as a permanent technology component in the Joint Emergency Operations Center at the City of Fort Worth, Texas reaching tens of thousands of workers. And this Sunday - it is being used to bring together 60 different agencies on multiple radio frequencies in the most important game in American Football – the Super Bowl.
