With Lotusphere 2012 and Connect 2012 just days away, people are buzzing about social business. One of the most popular items among @IBMSWNewsletter Twitter followers this week was an a video interview with Sandy Carter, IBM VP of Social Business Evangelism, about social business adoption. Sandy explains why companies should care about social business (hint: it’s the results) and how IBM can help companies overcome some of the obstacles to social business adoption. It’s a terrific 5-minute, 15-second introduction to the topic.
IBM Business Partners looking to become social businesses should check out another hot item this week: IBM PartnerWorld's Social Media Marketing Boot Camp, an 8-week step-by-step program to help you use social media in your marketing and sales efforts.
