The official description (from the official website)
Kudos Badges can transform and accelerate organisations user adoption of IBM Connections by encouraging users to leverage the full range of social services and drive user adoption and behaviour.
Kudos Badges for IBM Connections is a flexible gamification engine for IBM Connections. By providing achievements and rewards (Kudos Badges), rank and leaderboards (Kudos Rank), and missions (Kudos Missions), organisations can dramatically improve their user engagement and adoption of IBM Connections.
In addition Kudos Badges is an extensible platform that can leverage game theory to provide performance management mechanics and reward systems for applications outside of IBM Connections such as HR, Sales Force Management, Help Desks, and many more.

ISW, an australian IBM business partner, have developed an IBM Connections extension called Kudos.
So with Kudos you can give users specific rewards (badges) as soon as they meet some criterion. And you can create badges for pretty much everything !
On top of that users can access various ranks, depending of their use of the platform (is the user a newbie or a power user ?) :
Kudos is bundled with hundreds of pre-build badges and ranks, but you can easily create your own in a few minutes. All you have to do is write your own metrics using the metrics configurator admin widget, and create your new badge or rank using the metrics you created previously :
Thanks to Adam Brown from ISW, Kudos is now installed on our demo platform. So don't hesitate to contact us if you want more information regarding IBM Connections and Kudos.
