IBM has been an innovation leader in the collaboration marketplace for nearly a quarter of a century. We first brought together the building blocks for a social business by bringing Lotus Development Corp. -- the inventors of the Groupware category, with Lotus Notes and Domino -- into the IBM family. And as we talked a lot about at Connect 2013 in January, we now enter the next phase of collaboration. Business transformation will be based on the application of social software to the enterprise. The outcomes? Creating a smarter workforce, and enhanced customer experience with smarter commerce.
Success will come from more than individual applications. It will take a platform approach to drive adoption and business value. The IBM Platform for Social Business is just such an approach, one that marries key capabilities -- social networking, messaging, real-time collaboration, analytics, social and web content management, and portals -- into an integrated, unified infrastructure. One that is designed from the ground up to be an extensible foundation for your social business. One that includes supporting value-added integrations and applications that are specific to your business.
In fact, IBM already has hundreds of technology partners and thousands of local solution providers building their solutions on the IBM Platform for Social Business. Business partners like Trilog for social project management and Bunchball for gamification. As a result, customers in every industry and geography, like Birmingham Metropolitan College, Bumbu Desa and TD Bank are building a sustainable competitive advantage by becoming social businesses.
On March 13, 2013 Ray Wang, Principal Analyst and CEO at Constellation Research and I will discuss why a platform approach is critical for social business success. Companies like Genworth, Czarnowski, Celina Insurance will share how a platform approach is helping them be more creative, effective and engaged in the workplace. And hear important announcements about how the next releases of IBM Notes and Domino Social Edition -- the most exciting release of our flagship offering in years! -- and IBM Connections Content Manager will create the next generation of the IBM Platform for Social Business. And if you're a Microsoft customer, learn how IBM can help make your existing investments social.
