Ju mer jag arbetar i det sociala intranätet, desto mer komplext blir mitt informationsflöde
Efter hand som medarbetarna alltmer använder det sociala intranätet som ett arbetsverktyg, ett annat sätt att utföra sitt arbete på, i stället för en kul kommunikationskanal när du behöver veta något specifikt eller hitta någon särskild, måste de också ändra sin hantering av in- och utflödet av olika meddelanden: aktivitetsström, notifieringar, epost, chat och kanske mer, dessutom via en alltmer komplex blandning av enheter och format. För många är detta nästa stora tröskel. Hur kan vi bäst hjälpa dem att styra upp och arbeta effektivt? Vad är det egentligen de behöver?

Keynote - What were you thinking?
How many times have you observed some scene, or behavior, or reaction that made you want to ask "What were you thinking?"  This question arises because you are outside the situation, looking on with an obvious different view that results in you questioning the sanity of the person you are observing.

What's interesting is the person being observed is often oblivious to the situation. Now for the news flash...it's very likely that you are that person. We've all been there.

During this session, we're going to look at some of the business situations we find ourselves in. But instead of the normal approach, we're going to take the viewpoint of an outsider, someone unfamiliar with our habits and practices. Hopefully we'll see why they might respond with "What were you thinking?"

A Day in the Life of a Knowledge (Web) Worker
Your adoption and enablement efforts, as part of your company’s overall Social Business and Digital Transformation journey, are starting to, finally, pay off. You have seen how hordes of your fellow colleagues, beyond just the early adopters, are now starting to embrace that brave new world of living social, doing social, with IBM Connections.

Adapting your adoption approach - Lessons learned from a year in China
Most of our approaches to boost adoption of the new ways of working that are enabled by IBM Connections have been developed in the western culture and through working with forward thinking companies. How do they measure up when faced with a very different culture, both local and corporate? Do they need modifying, re-balancing or do they work at all?
During the past year, most of my time has been spent on developing an adoption strategy and roadmap for a large Chinese company, and later to support the implementation of that roadmap. In this session, I will share my experience and lessons learned.

Enterprise Collaboration and Internal Communications are Like ‘Harry and Sally’ - Separated by Misconception, United at Last.
Four out of five Intranet strategies fail by a lack of integration. Web Content Management Systems are excellent in top-down communication. IBM Connections is excellent in peer-to-peer collaboration. Using separate platforms for communication and collaboration causes confusion and confronts users and authors with difficult choices: where to publish and where to search for content. Governance problems, fragmentation, inconsistencies, user frustration and lost potential are the consequences. 
The Web Content Management Extension (XCC) enhances IBM Connections combined with classic Web CMS capabilities and thus integrates the two antipodes of an intranet, i.e. peer-to-peer collaboration with top-down communication. IBM Connections with the Web Content Management Extension XCC creates a beautifully integrated Social Intranet. See an extensive live demo of XCC. Learn how to manage internal communications with IBM Connections and why IBM Connections adoption and ROI will increase with XCC.

Lost in Content' - How do avoid your Enterprise software initiative becoming just another platform where users get lost!
One of the common issues with any Enterprise software initiative is that unless you provide an easy way for your users to navigate to e.g. communities they need to access on a regular basis, they get lost in communities and find it difficult to keep a track on what is happening or what is relevant. The Intranet is at the same time separated and the user sits in the middle 

Based on case real life examples, we will show you how to break down the overload syndrome and provide an inituive, role-based, easy to navigate experience that links the formal structures often associated with a traditional intranet with IBM Connections services using a user-configurable dashboard based on IBM Domino

Using Social Business Software and being compliant with EU data protection law

Social business software is all about sharing content and data in a “collaborative” way to identify internal or external experts. Most of these data must be considered as personal data which is related to an individual person.
Implementing social business technologies in enterprises often leads to discussion with data protection supervisors how to be compliant with EU data protection law. This discussion gets even more challenging if you consider using social business applications in “the cloud” which might the only choice in the near future due IBMs “Cloud First” or Microsoft’s “Cloud only” delivery model.
This session will give you an overview
- about EU data protection regulations
- its implications for using social business systems

15 years on, does your organisation have a clue?
It was back in 1999 that the Clue Train Manifesto was crafted by an esteemed group of authors and consultants (Christopher Locke, David Weinberge, Doc Searls and Rick Levine) and published on the web.  Later turned into a best-selling book, the 95 theses that made up the Manifesto were a call to action to all businesses operating within the newly connected marketplace.

In the 15 years that have passed, the Internet can be seen to have revolutionised the world that we live in, and massively disrupted the businesses that we work in.  Over this timeframe, we've seen the rise of massively successful internet-based organisations such as Amazon and Google, the social media explosion that led to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and the rest, and the development of the humble mobile phone into the power-packed go-anywhere smartphone and tablet of today.

Along the way, our organisations have looked to harness the power of the network, the social collaboration paradigm and the mobile device to empower their knowledge workers and to improve knowledge sharing, personal productivity and employee retention - leading to the procurement and deployment of solutions like IBM Connections.

In this session, Stuart takes a fresh look at the overall themes of the Clue Train Manifesto and at a number of the key theses relating to internal communications, reviews how IBM Connections might assist in delivering on the promises made all those years ago, and looks to the future to see where further improvements might take us.

Using Enterprise Social Network Analytics to Accelerate Adoption for IBM Connections

Ensuring organization-wide adoption is a significant challenge for teams responsible for deploying any new technology – and IBM Connections is no exception. What makes adoption difficult is changing entrenched staff behaviors.  Leveraging “Influencers” as advocates can help change this paradigm – however how do you identify the ‘real’ influencers in an organization?   Expanding and extending communities also accelerates adoption.  How do community managers accurately know whom to invite into customer or project communities?

 

We will share how organizations are using our enterprise social network analytics to resolve the ‘adoption’ issue, enabling them to accelerate business value realization.

The Connected Enterprise - From Hierarchy to Wirearchy with IBM Connections
“Work like a network”. Probably the most often heard buzzword in the Social Business field that tries to describe what the potential workplace of the future would be like in a hyperconnected, networked world.


Everyone is talking about social networks, how much they are disrupting the traditional top-down, command and control, hierarchical model of working and eventually we are starting to hear and read plenty more about that novel concept of working like a wirearchy. But what does that mean? And, more specifically, can we enable and facilitate that brave new world of living and working through networks and communities via IBM Connections? 


Come and join us on this special presentation where we will be covering the main principles behind wirearchy, and how it’ll change the way we work today towards a more democratic, participatory, engaging, and overall interconnected workplace environment, where vast majority of work will now circulate around networks powered by IBM Connections.
