The ways individuals and communities interact, form relationships, make decisions, accomplish work, and purchase goods are changing the way business is done. A social business embraces and cultivates a spirit of collaboration and community—internally and externally—delivering unprecedented return for the time invested.
A social business recognizes that people do business with people and optimizes how people interact to accomplish organizational goals:
Deeply connecting individuals in productive, efficient ways
Providing line of sight across traditional boundaries and better aligning actions to needs
Speeding up business with insight to anticipate and address evolving opportunities
Becoming a social business requires a long-term, strategic approach to business culture, executive leadership, an effective corporate strategy, and organizational ability to recognize and design for transformation.
With the IBM® SmartCloud for Social Business platform, companies can integrate ready-to-use, world-class social business capabilities—such as communities, file sharing, collaborative online document editing, instant messaging and web meetings—into their organizations. With just a few clicks, they can add external guests and begin collaborating. And IBM’s cloud-based social platform is already mobile enabled, with new updates being added regularly, allowing organizations to focus on business-critical work rather than on keeping track of new mobile updates.
Collaborating with IBM Collaboration Solutions, We have announced a residency, "Preparing Your Enterprise for IBM SmartCloud for Social Business", to develop an IBM Redbooks guide in wiki format that covers most important topics to help customers leverage social business advantages by moving to IBM cloud-based solutions with IBM SmartCloud for Social Business. This residency is scheduled from November 04, 2013 to December 13, 2013.
