Breakfast with Alistair Rennie in Sydney - Some Notes

Research finding: companies who outperformed their industry are more than 3X as likely to have adopted smart work practices - faster at being able to build skills to new markets, more likely to identify people with needed skills, more likely to gain insights and losve problems by rating and commenting, more likely to integrate and deliver data from multiple sources. Sametime is significantly better. See Sogeti (which notes there is some Sametime and OCS in there too).

I caught a couple of blog posts on the IBM Keynote for UC ( Lotusphere Message: Yes There Is a UC ROI ) and then one on the Sametime blog (see below). On average - using suggested retail prices, it would cost approximately $450K to purchase 5000 Sametime licenses including maintenance, two hardware servers, pay someone to plan and install the software and servers, and pay an administrator to maintain the system.

Jive Engage Platform: Collaboration Inside and Outside of the Enterprise

Michael Sampson - Currents

This morning I spent a few hours trawling around the Jive Software web site , getting an update on current thinking and approaches coming out of Jive. The bi-directional integration between Jive and SharePoint looks clean. Users can see the presence of people when looking at their profile; the presence indicator is powered by Microsoft Office Communications Service, Lotus Sametime, or Jive's own OpenFire technology.

Microsoft's Unified Communications Predictions

Collaborative Thinking

I would add an open integration and interoperability framework - a UC platform should not equate to "single vendor". The idea of migrate at your own pace actually makes IBM's approach with its Sametime Unified Telephony approach suddenly look pretty good. UC will increasingly span across the PC, browser, and mobile phone for truly integrated voice calling, email, IM, conferencing and presence on the go.

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. If IBM can achieve that position (social computing as the strategic direction vs. traditional collaboration and content platforms), then it can then work over time to erode a SharePoint collaboration/content commitment by introducing Quickr and Sametime for instance.
