I use this blog mainly for public discussion, but every once in awhile I'll post a blog mainly dedicated to IBM employees. Well, today is one of those days. This blog entry is for IBM employees and contains w3 links not accessible to the public at times.
As part of the IBM Centennial, IBM is making it easier for IBM employees to engage in conversations internally and externally (with the public). Over the weekend, the ibm.com Community team deployed Single Sign-on (SSO). SSO means that users can log in to ibm.com Community on Lotus Connections, and then visit other SSO-enabled www applications without having to sign in again - and vice versa. And, if you have linked your w3 ID with your IBM ID, ibm.com Community (and other SSO-enabled applications) will recognize you with your w3 ID. This capability enables better integration between ibm.com Community and the rest of the ibm.com Web site, and makes it easier for employees to traverse w3 and our ibm.com collaboration environments. See ibm.com Community profile to learn more about the importance of building profiles and linking IDs.
