Instead, a long while ago I have made the transition into what some people have been calling work life integration, where one of key words / concepts that has started making the rounds in the last few years, that is, flexibility, is gaining more and more importance and relevance as we move forward.

More Thoughts On Social Presence

Collaborative Thinking

There were two notable comments to my earlier post (and cross-post ) on the concept of social presence and the role (or non-role) of UC vendors. Any social presence platform would clearly need to include a policy management component that would integrate with security and identity management systems within an enterprise to support authentication, authorization and related demands (e.g. presence??? business presence??? social presence???

Collaborative Thinking: Peter Saint-Andre on Presence

Collaborative Thinking

We tend to put XMPP in a box (yet another protocol for instant messaging that also happens to handle presence). As Skype users know well, IM is nothing without simple presence signaling. Lee and Peter talked about emerging presence.

Presence Is Too Important To Leave To UC Vendors

Collaborative Thinking

After all, we associate presence as a foundational capability within unified communications. Indeed, several blog posts have recently highlighted the importance of presence as a core component of a UC platform while noting interoperability challenges across UC systems. presence???

Thoughts On Salesforce & DimDim

Collaborative Thinking

Below, I’ve outlined some of the those issues organizations should consider when this type of situation arises in the market: Instant Messaging (IM) & Presence. An IM function within an application platform creates numerous overlap situations with existing IM and presence infrastructure (e.g., Decision-makers can allow for exceptions from IT standards (if they exist) when there is unique business value offered by an embedded IM/presence capability.

Academic BEtreat – the technical challenges

Jenny Connected

One of the principles of these BEtreats is that online and face-to-face participants should be fully integrated, so for the most part the online people are projected into the face-to-face room through video on Adobe Connect – where presentations can also be shared. We have been told that this BEtreat is trying to ‘push the boat out’ to explore the challenges of integrating online and face-to-face participation in a course and I think we all recognise hw ambitious this programme is.

Education Technology Action Group consultation

SocialTech

The common theme here is that at the level of policy relating to schools, the use of technology for education is being perceived as a separate, specialist area, rather than an effective and integral range of approaches and tools to support learners and learning communities. This isn’t, of course, to say that there is any shortage of schools and school staff making effective and creative use of innovative approaches that are supported, or made possible, by the use of technologies.

Analysts and associations will begin to hold vendors accountable for delivering true unified communications, which includes--at a minimum--a single identity with presence at the core, a single inbox, unified management, developer tools, and a unified user experience across voice, conferencing, instant messaging, and email. A single identity with presence at the core is spot on - but it makes you wonder why Microsoft does not openly share its rich presence information?
