BIZTECHBUZZ in the world of social, cognitive, IoT and startups

Mobile first. Social Always. Mind the data.

I am here today in Luzern, Switzerland at the Big IBM event with over 1200 companies talking about Mobile and Social!


We have a special Digital Media Room to assist clients getting started with Social.   Social has a STRONG ROI component which I find is very appealing to our Swiss clients.   And the transformation itself is getting noticed in how it is changing the way we work. Did you know that 83% of gen y has joined a social network and $200B in mobile money transfers by 2015?

IBM believes in this transformation so strongly that Social Business has been a key enabler of IBM’s legendary business transformation and global integration.   IBM is the most prolific user of enterprise social technologies.

Today, more than 400,000 IBM employees use IBM social technologies, including Connections, IBM’s social business platform. As a result, more than 130,000 communities have been developed, 842,000 files shared globally have generated more than 22.1 million downloads. Every day, IBM generates 50 million instant message chats.   IBMs recent $1.3B acquisition of Kenexa  brings relevant data and expertise into the hands of business leaders within every functional department (marketing, HR, sales, product development).

After the keynote, I’ll post our key points for this powerful transformation!

    I leave a response each time I appreciate a post on a blog or I have
    something to add to the conversation. It is triggered by the fire displayed
    in the post I looked at. And on this post Mobile first.
    Social Always. Mind the data. | Social Media to Social Business.

    I was actually moved enough to drop a comment 🙂 I do have a couple of
    questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be only me or do a few of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other places, I would like to keep up with you. Could you list all of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
