To realize the value and achieve the promise of social, successful organizations put in place practices that impact how users adopt social tools and apply them to the key relationships within and beyond the organization.
Alan will share practices from other customers and share the core components of a social business strategy.
The focus will be on successful application of social from a Line of Business point of view, but we will highlight some technology decisions that will support business success.
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

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.
