Business Challenge story

As an intelligent and innovative community, Waterfront Toronto needed a portal with social capabilities to link all stakeholders and support an exceptional quality of life.


Teaming with IBM Premier Business Partner Element Blue, LLC, Waterfront Toronto deployed the New Blue Edge community portal powered by SoftLayer® cloud and IBM Connections social business software.


The solution enhances Waterfront Toronto's efforts to build a smarter city and improve residents' quality of life. It showcases the community to potential participants, visitors and entrepreneurs.
