  • There is something fundamentally different happening with the social form of collaboration technology. We have moved from a world where it was hard to publish information, and difficult to get that information out …...to a world where using social technology makes it possible to self-publish and share information easier than every before. Over time we have started to recognize that there are organizations that (as they are leveraging these technologies) we think of them in terms of a social business because they are embracing networks of people and these networks of people are creating business value. Here are several elements that characterize a social business: Engaged - A Social Business connects people to expertise. It connects individuals – whether customers, partners or employees – as networks of people to generate new sources of innovation, foster creativity, and establish greater reach and exposure to new business opportunities. It establishes a foundational level of trust across these business networks and thus a willingness to openly share information, developing a deeper sense of loyalty among customers and employees. It empowers these networks with the collaborative, gaming and analytical tools needed to engage each other and creatively solve business challenges. Transparent - A Social business is always learning and therefore believes that it should remove unnecessary boundaries between experts inside the company and experts in the marketplace to allow your people and culture to reflect your brand and your values. It embraces the tools and leadership models that support capturing knowledge and insight from many sources allowing it to quickly sense changes in customer mood, employee sentiment, or process efficiencies. It utilizes analytics and social connections inside and outside the company to solve business problems and capture new business opportunities. Nimble - A Social Business leverages these social networks to speed up business, gaining real-time insight to make quicker and better decisions. It gets information to customers and partners in new ways - faster. Supported by ubiquitous access on mobile devices, new ways of connecting and working together in the Cloud and on open platforms, a Social Business turns time and location from constraints into advantages. Business is free to occur when and where it delivers the greatest value, allowing the organization to adapt quickly to the changing marketplace.

  • Taking those particular pieces of info, we then have tried to combine those with other research information we have, other sources. For example, Gartner has annually done research where they were looking at what are the priorities that companies have in this particular space. What you can see is two out of the three priorities up there all have to do with customers, retaining customers, keeping the customers happy, etc.
  • We will talk a little bit more about this framework in the Developer Ecosystem section of this slide set. However, I would like to mention here and point out that our framework is based on an open architecture which enables the extension options that we have within Connections some of which were just previously mentioned. In the next series of slides, I will focus on four of the key themes that are driving the features and functions in our offerings.

  • Panasonic Corporation is a market and technology leader in consumer and industrial electronics. As part of its globalization efforts, the company embarked on an IT initiative to improve competitive advantage and overall business results by helping its multiple business units work together more efficiently. Panasonic selected IBM for its global e-mail and collaboration platform to help them transform their workforce into a globally connected and integrated team. Panasonic chose IBM LotusLive for Web conferencing, file sharing, instant messaging and project management. The company will implement LotusLive Connections for business social networking between employees, partners and suppliers to find and share the right insight when needed. Panasonic will also migrate employees from Microsoft Exchange or other collaboration software to LotusLive for e-mail, calendaring and contact management. The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), a private college in California specializing in the fashion design, interior design and entertainment industries, has purchased LotusLive iNotes to provide 7,500 students with low-cost, reliable Webmail that they can access anywhere on or off campus.  FIDM's goal was to offer all incoming and current students email accounts with a consistent FIDM domain so the administration and faculty could communicate with the student body more effectively.  In FIDM's eLearning program, where most of the interaction between students and teachers happens electronically, LotusLive provides a consistent and reliable user experience for the entire class which facilitates focused and effective communication.  FIDM also wanted to ensure that its students had a professional email account to use when applying for internships or jobs after graduation.   Prior to moving to LotusLive iNotes, students used their free, personal email accounts and the administration did not always have the correct email address for every student on campus. General Milling Corporation (GMC) is one of the largest integrated food companies in the Philippines with offices and plants located throughout the country.

The company acquired LotusLive's complete collaboration suite to provide its employees with cloud-based e-mail and advanced collaboration tools. Moving e-mail to the cloud with LotusLive Notes allows the company to expand IT resources while still having access to business-class messaging and the latest technologies from IBM. GMC also purchased LotusLive Engage to promote greater collaboration among its widely dispersed work-force and its partners and vendors.

Headquartered in Padua, Italy, the company operates in over 40 countries and has more than 1,400 employees. SIT La Precisa wanted to find a better way to communicate and collaborate with its global workforce and needed to provide its employees with web conference services and e-mail without having to build a new IT infrastructure.

The company can create free guest accounts for customers and freelance translators to collaborate more easily.

Crawford & Company, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the world's largest independent provider of claims management solutions to the risk management and insurance industry as well as self-insured entities, with a global network of more than 700 locations in 63 countries. Crawford purchased LotusLive iNotes to provide cost effective email services to catastrophe adjusters. With LotusLive iNotes the company can provide their adjusters in the field with a consistent email domain and a security rich environment to share information with clients as well as internal communication.

Founded in 1996, the company has closed more than US $2 billion in residential mortgages. Signature Mortgage needed to replace its manual, paper-based application process that required customers to either go to a retail branch to sign documents or wait for documents to be delivered to their homes. Signature Mortgage worked with IBM Business Partner Silanis Technology Inc. to implement a solution based on Silanis e-SignLive integrated services and IBM LotusLive Engage collaboration services. The solution enables customers to complete, review, initial and sign mortgage applications electronically through services delivered via the cloud. Canderel has become one of Canada’s largest real-estate development and property management companies with landmark projects across Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and beyond. In response to the real estate market meltdown in 2008, Canderel decided to eliminate manual, paper-based processes to increase efficiency and convenience as well as to reduce costs. Canderel was able to reduce the time and money needed to close deals by using LotusLive Engage with the e-SignLive integrated electronic signature service offering from IBM Business Partner Silanis Technology Inc. The eSignLive and LotusLive solution enables all parties to come together in LotusLive to negotiate and sign deals electronically using the integrated e-SignLive e-signature services. The company can hold online meetings with all parties during the negotiation and contracting phases and use e-SignLive to electronically sign all closing documents, and remotely monitor the progress of signing activities in real-time. C &D Foods, based in Longford, Ireland, is one of Europe's leading high quality pet food manufacturers. In operation since the late 1960’s, C&D Food produces more than 150,000 tons of pet food annually including dry, cans, and single serve in pouches and aluminium and has facilities in three countries in Europe. Last year when C&D acquired a canning facility in the Netherlands, the company needed a quick and cost-effective way to move e-mail users at that facility off Microsoft Exchange. Instead of bringing those users onto its current Domino servers, they decided to move them to the cloud using LotusLive iNotes. With its simple administration tools and user-friendly interface, LotusLive iNotes helped take pressure of the company's migration team. C &D Foods was able to move users to iNotes quickly and easily without any interruption to its network or IT infrastructure. And with LotusLive iNotes, users can access their e-mail, anytime, any place.

Using e-SignLive and LotusLive, Horton makes the privacy policy document available online so that employees can then take the time needed to carefully review and accept the privacy policy at their own pace from any location in the country.
