It was great to catch up with James Governor, the founder of RedMonk, at IBM Pulse.
As you can see in this video, James talks about how cloud is redefining business and IT roles leading to a growing importance in trends like DevOps!
If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to go check out RedMonk!
I had a fascinating discussion recently with Reshma Saujani, Founder and CEO for Girls Who Code. We discussed why so few women are embarking in careers in Computer Science and what we need to do to address this.
You will find Reshma speaking at the upcoming SXSW conference in Austin, TX.
Great news! HootSuite has now integrated into my favorite social platform, IBM Connections!
As you know, thousands of companies have deployed social software for their internal collaboration and/or to build and maintain relationships with their partners and customers.
To manage my own social presence on public social networks such as Twitter, I use HootSuite.
I’m not the only one who uses different tools to manage social within my company and outside of my company. As I spoke with Forbes earlier this week (CLICK HERE), many companies are seeing the business value of social media and understanding that it’s imperative to bring social media and internal enterprise communications together in order to better serve customers and engage employees. This effective distribution of content both internally and externally to an organization is a component of a social content curation plan.
Today HootSuite announced (Announcement) the private Beta integration with IBM Connections platform.
Now with a couple of clicks, I can publish content into my IBM Connections status update and Community streams directly from the HootSuite dashboard. Viola! I can also view all my social media channels, including IBM Connections from within the HootSuite dashboard!
The HootSuite – IBM Connections Application is free for HootSuite Enterprise and IBM Connections customers. Get started now! Request the beta here http://socialbusiness.hootsuite.com/ibm-beta-request.
Curious what social trends will influence the next year in social?
Join me this Thursday 8/22 to hear my thoughts on the topic! I’ll be talking hot social trends during the Afternoon Snack – a live Hangout with Shoutlet COO Aaron Everson.
We’ll cover what’s shaping the industry now and in the months to come, from the rise of social business to the growth of mobile and better social analytics. As someone who champions social business everyday, I’m looking forward to a rich conversation that will provide you with some food for thought as you build your social program and collaborate internally to inject social thinking into all that you do.
You can register for the event here, or on G+ directly. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask me questions during the Q&A! http://shout.lt/k1c2
