  • One question that we deal with most often is 'What are the primary use cases for social business software in an enterprise.' And it is indeed the most intelligent question to ask. Here is the short and sweet answer. Any thing more than this, in our opinion, in unnecessary marketing talk

    - Enterprise communication: Chatting, micro blogging, discussions, forums
    - Social networking and Expert search and reach out
    - User profiles and personal information management
    - Project and tasks management

  • Business Issues This large government agency (>30.000 employees) experienced difficulties in collaborating across departments, and in finding experts and expertise in a timely way, leading to inefficient processes and lack of learning from past mistakes. The organization also needed to address the combined continuity challenge of loosing key capabilities, skills and knowledge because of required cost reduction efforts (including staff reduction) as well as the effect of an aging workforce, who are due to leave the organization in the next few years. Medium term vision for this organization is that to combat these issues it is key to (1) enable virtual working, (2) facilitate networking and connectedness across the organization, and (3) improving their attractiveness as an employer for new talent. Project Approach Business Process Demonstration illustrating the value that the new social platform could bring for the client. Not just any process – a core primary process that executives could recognize the importance of improving. Adoption initiation program focused on executing “pilots” in all business lines to generate early success and lessons learned. Avoided the “share lessons” use cases, and focused on true added value processes central to the organization's medium term strategy. Creating a suitable support environment to enable “bottom-up adoption”, including online, helpdesk, project team support and training material based on recognizable use cases. Enabling enthusiastic ambassadors to drive the value discussion in the business and showcase role model behavior. Client Outcomes / Lessons Learned As a result of the proposal demonstration, 30,000  users across three business units in the Netherlands are actively using tools within the Lotus suite. Success, in this engagement, was measured per pilot, with metrics like: 'percentage of use' within the communities and the number of populated user profiles. We were able to produce significant adoption and up-take rates, while only communicating the launch to 3000 IT professionals.  IT was notified of the launch of ConnectPeople at a week-long inspiration event. There were presentations, flyers, banners, business cards and hands-on workshops to get acquainted with the new platform.  After that, our adoption strategy was to run an initial set of pilots in the business (as well as IT) in a program run by IT, to get familiar with business requirements and cultural issues, and build success stories. That´s the phase we are rounding up now. To drive adoption organization-wide, the different business units need to take ownership and start an adoption program for themselves, with support from us. They are organizing for this now. We did not want to communicate widely before our success stories and our experience was more grounded. That said - we did publish one or two articles in company wide press in october, right after the launch.   Client Reaction Collaboration with the client was excellent due to their internal stakeholder management, drive and understanding, and their superb ability to execute. Key feedback from the client suggests that working as one IBM with our breadth of knowledge, completeness of service, quality of support, and depth of understanding is a key differentiator.    Client Value Becoming a “Social Business” enables this client to make their operations more effective and efficient, and to improve client satisfaction scores through better quality service. Positioning the new social platform as a central and integrated part of the workplace helps drive widespread adoption, which in turn positions this organization for showcase to the wider Dutch government.  
  • Children's Medical Center of Dallas wanted a way to help patients and families learn from one another's experiences and improve education and support networks, with the hope of driving more effectively managed care. As the 7th largest pediatric healthcare provider in the US- with nearly 570,000 patient visits every year- and a network of physicians and employees, they had a large potential 'social graph' to tap into. Using a solution, with key software of IBM WebSphere Portal, IBM Connections, Mobile Portal capability, IBM Forms, Coremetrics, and Tivoli, which integrated health records, educational material, tools, and the Children’s Social Network into a single web experience, CMDC provided patients and parents with a private community for communication and support. It is estimated to drive a 75% reduction in clinic phone calls, a 5% increase in referrals, integration within the continuity of care and reduced operating costs. Based on IBM Connections, the Children’s Social Network (CSN) allows patients and family members to interact with other members to form a sense of community at Children’s. CSN is integrated into the Patient Portal in a way that promotes community but does not intrude.
  • AXA Connie O’Brien of AXA Equitable speaks about a game designed by her company, an insurance company– and yes you heard that right– entitled “Pass it On.” The game was designed to instill an understanding in users of the value of life insurance, sales of which have been at an all time low. The company remains entirely transparent with their players in order to meet regulations and the challenges that come with the sensitive material inherent in the business. Players go through the game, saving money and generally meeting the needs of their family -fundamentally learning about life insurance and its benefits. One goal for AXA was to personalize the game through the use of custom avatars, and different color shields signifying levels. Instead of the player dying at the end, he or she moves on, and the beneficiary simply takes over the benefits, moving forward from there. Players can also win a chance at a cash reward of $15-$25,000. Energize : The IBM BPM game, Innov8 . takes the customer into a virtual world Teach them about Business Process Management. In this approach, IBM recognize s that people have short attention spans, and gaming can be very effective for engaging people. Innov8 is a lead generation campaign. The game is free to play, but IBM knows that people want to brag about their scores, but they have to give their contact information in order to display their scores outside of the game. Panasonic Hilton IBM Mobile Enterprise Services helps Hilton Worldwide drive real business value, including: Improved overall guest experience Drive down cost Set a standard for how hotels should be Panasonic Ushers in cloud computing with SmartCloud for Social Business to connect global workforce in the cloud Business challenge Panasonic is a market and technology leader in consumer and industrial electronics.

Singapore Polytechnic With information scattered over a stack of disparate systems - from email (Windows Live) to student administration (PeopleSoft) to corporate websites (BEA) - Boon Hai felt that students could get a better “end user experience” if they had a one-stop portal. This portal would “push” relevant information to students (e.g. update them via sms) rather than waiting for students to “pull” the information themselves. The point was to get students to feel more connected to their alma mater, and the portal site is designed around services that students might need, he said. For example, freshmen often need information like campus directions and course criteria, whilst the graduating class would need information on job prospects, potential university placement and/or NAPFA physical fitness test (for young Singaporean men about to enter the army). They have personalized the student e-experience for each individual student – they login and see My page, My Singapore Polytechnic, My Study, etc. And personalized messages are pushed to students through SMS.
