We are pleased to announce that IBM is a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Social Platforms, Q2 2014! Forrester Research uses 65 criteria to rate each of the 13 vendors they selected to be part of the evaluations. Our team worked hard to ensure Forrester knew everything IBM had to offer, and we are proud to announce that we have been selected as a leader with the highest score for current offering, second highest rating in market presence and one of the second highest scores for strategy categories.
What sets us apart? We received the highest scores for core functionality, engagement workplace readiness, and the highest score possible for event logs, monitoring & reporting, cross platform support, and partners criteria.
Forrester states in the report that "IBM continues to tap assets across its broad portfolio to build the value of Connections....With the release of Connections 4.5 in April 2013, IBM introduced robust, scalable document management with Connections Content Manager and pushed the product into the role of a full engagement workplace....with the increasing integration of Kenexa, IBM is bringing social to talent management..."
Well done team!
