Welcome to IBM's new Center for Social Software. This first-of-a-kind center of excellence is dedicated to helping our customers and partners with the tough challenges of collaborating across globally distributed organizations. An acknowledged leader in the field, we will bring together the brightest minds in IBM from around the world and tap into our deep experience to create the industry's premier incubator for social technology.
Working closely with corporate partners, university faculty and students the center will use rapid, large scale deployments and social science research to understand the kind of viral adoption common in today's non-business social software and apply it to create Web 2.0 implementations that are "fit for business." Headquartered in Cambridge, the Center will feature corporate residency, university relations, and internship programs, as well as design and demo spaces.
