    1. 1. Team Collaboration & Collaborative Document Management: IBM Lotus Quickr
    2. 2. Agenda Lotus Quickr overview Relationship between Lotus Quickr and other products in the IBM portfolio Benefits Business and market trends
    3. 3. Organizational change, boldness, need for collaborative innovation through the firewall drives social software adoption <ul><li>Organizations are bombarded by change, and many are struggling to keep up </li></ul><ul><ul><li>8 of 10 CEOs: significant change ahead, yet the gap between expected change and the ability to manage it is almost triple since ‘06 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CEOs view more demanding customers as an opportunity to differentiate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CEOs are spending more to attract and retain increasingly prosperous, informed and socially aware customers </li></ul></ul>IBM Institute for Business Value CEO Study 2008 <ul><li>2/3 of CEOs are implementing extensive innovations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>>40% are changing their models to be more collaborative </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Financial outperformers are making bolder plays </li></ul><ul><ul><li>These companies anticipate more change, and manage it better. They are also more global in their business designs, partner more extensively and choose more disruptive forms of business model innovation </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>Work environments: more complex </li></ul><ul><li>Work environments: more disconnected </li></ul><ul><li>Interactions: more often, people you don’t know </li></ul>
    5. 5. Market-leading organizations will be… Source: 2008 IBM CEO study “ Change-Ready” Capable of changing quickly and successfully. Instead of merely responding to trends, it shapes and leads them. Market shifts become a chance to move ahead of the competition “ Globally integrated” to collaborate more effectively Moving aggressively toward global business designs to take advantage of global integration opportunities. Able to access the best capabilities, knowledge and assets from wherever they reside in the world and apply them wherever required in the world “ Innovation Leaders” Innovative Beyond Customers Imagination. Deep collaborative relationships allow it to surprise customers with innovations that make both its customers and its own business more successful.
    6. 6. Changing Workplace Demographics Drives a Need to Empower the New Generation of Business Leaders 19% of the entire American workforce holding executive , administrative and managerial positions will retire in the next five years In the year 2000, there were more people receiving pensions in Italy than people working (22 versus 21 million) Within the next seven years, 33 million people in Japan (26%) will be over 65 years old By 2016, people aged 60-64 in Australia is expected to almost double Boomers depart; millennials arrive
    7. 7. A workforce in transition provides challenges and opportunities Capture their knowledge before they retire Relieve their stress and increase their effectiveness Attract and retain; harness their collaborative style Older workers (Age 50 +) Mid- career workers (Age 35 – 50) New generation (born after 1980) Growing as % of workforce Shrinking as % of workforce Growing as % of workforce Hold the wisdom and intellectual capital of the organization Essential source of professionals and middle managers Critical to long-term viability and innovation Traditional approach to technology, collaboration, organizational loyalty, and rewards Tech savvy but not “native speakers”; mixed approach to collaboration, loyalty, and rewards Technology is 2 nd nature; more interested in peer / interest groups than organizational identity; think work should be fun and fulfilling
    8. 8. Web 2.0 is the native language of “Millennials” and the new language of collaboration … Almost three-fourths of teens send instant messages more than e-mail. A new blog gets created every second. Everyone’s opinion should be heard By 2009, wikis are predicted to become mainstream collaboration tools in at least half of all companies. Everyone contributes Communication is constant And every generation wants the applications at work to be as “cool” and attractive as the ones at home … Technorati/ Law Technology News, Dec 1, 2005 ; Comscore, Aug 8, 2005 ; America Online / Research Alert, Jan 6, 2006
    9. 9. State of current tools contributes to the gap… <ul><li>Fragmented: collaboration tools are fragmented and disjointed </li></ul><ul><li>Hard-to-use: only those with greatest need are willing to tackle the learning curve </li></ul><ul><li>Stove-pipe silos : users are forced to change applications to access needed collaboration services </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of integration: separation between communication and collaboration services leads many users to fall back to the pervasive “reply to all” </li></ul><ul><li>Unfamiliar: current tools don’t enable users to stay within their favorite applications </li></ul>
