What Difference A Year Doesn't Make: Lotus Connections & SharePoint

Collaborative Thinking

In his post, " Lotusphere 2009: What Might Have Been ", Guy articulates how IBM should have outlined a "surround and integrate" strategy for SharePoint. IBM has to do superior and native integration between Connections and Microsoft productivity tools and integrate with SharePoint as well. If Atlassian, Newsgator, Awareness, Telligent and others can integrate with SharePoint the way Microsoft customers would prefer, so can IBM.

Atlassian, NewsGator) whose products integrated into SharePoint in ways that alleviated some of the worst functionality (e.g., Burton Group research on enterprise social networking in 2008 found that organizations were tired of tool-by-tool approaches when it came to social tools (blogs, wikis, social networking). There are more integration points however, and a lot of cross-dependencies, and inability to really substitute components.

So a good way to look at it would be "these functions are as if my own internal IT team built them" If you take that approach - then you might be very happy to deploy these extensions and improve what Microsoft delivered out of the box. If CodePlex is not your "cup of tea" then you can look for third-party vendors that have integrated their social software tools with SharePoint. Socialtext , NewsGator and Atlassian ( Confluence wiki ) are examples.

Collaborative Thinking: Social Software Vendor Roundup

Collaborative Thinking

At the beginning of 2007, our customers came looking with a more tool-centric approach, but interestingly most now come looking for a suite of solutions. That might point more towards a tool approach, but perhaps the tool of the future is not one of the categories above but all of them together with a killer strategy to leverage incumbent enterprise data.

Oracle's View On Enterprise 2.0

Atlassian, Connectbeam, Jive, Socialtext, Telligent, etc) as well as traditional collaboration and content platform players (e.g., Thumbs-up: The idea of one single repository is somewhat idealistic but I read this as more of a centralized approach in terms of policies and management (critical for compliance demands), which I would agree with - I would also agree with another interpretation that Oracle means a centralized framework to integrate/federate a collection of systems.

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

This leads me into another observation, that it looks like this process assumes that the collaborative technologies are in place and working but they are just not integrated in a content sense. Without this, these models are too quickly ignored when a "sexier" approach comes along.

More on CoPs

John Tropea - Delicious Community

CoP usage was not integrated into the corporate procedures, and CoP performance metrics were not tied to individual performance goals. From: Katrina Pugh , Worldwide Knowledge Management Consultant, Business Strategy and Knowledge Integration, Intel Solution Services Stan, I agree with your comments - especially the regular meeting and tiers.

tools such as teqlo , iUpload , Blogtronix , SocialText , Mobilize , BEA’s Project Builder , Microsoft’s Excel Services, Atlassian and Itensil can all be used by knowledge workers to build various kinds of enterprise class solutions. SalesForce.dot has proven that this approach works. I think a more reasonable approach is to involve more end users in the design and specification processes to help ensure their needs are met.

A good place to start might be some kind of internal directory or personal profiles, perhaps integrating with corporate Active Directory or LDAP systems. This is precisely the kind of low cost, simple, people-powered approach to sharing and managing information in businesses that we need as IT spending decreases and companies seek greater efficiencies of operation.

Headshift : Gettin' Wiki With It

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Weve been doing a root-and-branch upgrade of the integration between two coupled systems - migrating blog platforms from a third-party package to in-house code, creating a single sign on across all sites, etc etc etc. With this collaborative wiki approach, all we have to do is just record it in the appropriate place on the Confluence page, and all relevant parties get automatically notified.
