Social Connections VI – Prague

Michael Sampson - Currents

When the tour was originally under design, the intent was to align it with Social Connections VI – which at one point was going to be held in mid May.

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.

But - that means that IBM needs to let Connections "do its own thing" and not worry about slowing down or try to cross-sell other Lotus products.
