As early adopters of social business, we have remained true to our brand’s forward-thinking spirit–but have yet tofully capitalize on all the ways these dynamic platforms can help grow and evolve our brand, business, and competitive advantagein this increasingly connected, global marketplace.
The rapid spread of mobile, cloud, analytics and social computing is driving large and positive changes in how corporate IT functions, how businesses operate, how we work, and how we live our lives. These new forms of computing enable global interconnectedness, drive operational efficiencies and business value, and generate digitized data that can help individuals and companies gain new insights for better decision-making.They also make it possible for individuals to connect and work anytime, anywhere, and with any device.Social computing, in particular, is creating new ways to: create relationships, build and manage reputation, collaborate to create intellectual capital, co-create with clients and employees, share and build expertise, and much more, creating the opportunity for what IBM and others call Social Business transformation. The pervasiveness and complexity of new technologies – and the fast-paced, open and interconnected environment they help create – introduce new risks to organizations and individuals. The “consumerization of IT” makes it more challenging for companies to maintain the security of their infrastructures when potentially thousands of such devices connect to corporate systems. The consumerization of IT also challenges traditional boundaries between work and life and can create complexities for employees. The sizeable increase in online criminal activity compounds the challenge we all face. The Internet is increasingly a resource for criminals who try to steal "digital valuables” such as user IDs, passwords, confidential business data, and personal information.
It makes our calls-to-action much more compelling, credible, and likely to evoke a positive, pro-IBM response among clients and prospects–ultimately creating self-sustaining brand evangelism and driving brand preference.
