GSMA show.jpg

ATLANTA  —  GSMA, an association of mobile operators best known for its massive annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Spain, opted for a more intimate setting this week. 

Rather that the  85,000 mobile industry stakeholders it attracts in Barcelona, the inaugural Mobile 360 North America conference here lured less than 300 attendees.The two-day event kicked off yesterday at the W Hotel in the Midtown section of the city.

Attendees included heavy-hitters in the mobile industry, include C-level executives from the likes of AT&T, Verizon, ZTE and Ericsson.

The theme of the conference, “Driving Innovation in Connected Living.” It was held to address the growing mobile ecosystem in North America — the world’s largest broadband market, as well as what we can expect in years ahead.

The Greatest Enterprise Collaboration Tool in the Universe

social business, The Greatest Enterprise Collaboration Tool in the Universe

Finally, some true enterprise collaboration software that works

I've been in B2B technology reporting for the better part of this century. You may be surprised to hear I've seen a few product pitches. 

Lately, the hot software product is the enterprise collaboration tool. Let's communicate. Collaborate. Share files. Share documents. Avoid meetings. 

Let's streamline all forms of communication into one platform and forget about the old days of disparate systems that don't talk to each other -- and in turn make humans bad at the same thing.

Adapting to the Digital Future: The Senior Management Challenge

“Bureaucracies are honed by the past and almost never can they deal with the future.” This quote, from biologist Leroy Hood, starts the first chapter of Paul Boag’s excellent book, "Digital Adaptation."

There is an old saying: “That which makes you strong can kill you in the end.” What gets you here might not get you further. In fact, it might become a drag on progress. The greatest strength in one environment can become a major weakness in another.

Discussion Point: Is Work Interfering With Our Personal Lives?

discussion-pointPut down your phone, please — you can call your cousin in a minute. And hold off updating your Facebook status or tweeting about the fantastic mocha latte you had an hour ago or watching the YouTube video du jour.

We've got work to do.

But results of new Ricoh Americas Corp. survey, released just today, confirm what many of us have long suspected: namely, that technology could be sapping our workplace productivity — and enabling workers to do a lot of things other than work.

Terrie Campbell, Vice President, Strategic Marketing at Ricoh Americas Corp., said businesses of all sizes are facing a connectivity conundrum. “We need to be connected to electronic resources for our work, which gives us a tremendous ability to achieve great things. But the flip-side is we’re a click away from alluring distractions like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Hollywood gossip and Angry Birds,” she said.

Yammer: SharePoint's Social Collaboration Savior? #SPTechCon

BOSTON -- Microsoft believes Yammer is good for its SharePoint health. Yammer chats are now synced with OneDrive and SharePoint files.

Just how good? So good, it envisions it being basically part of its fabric versus just an enterprise collaboration software platform.

Yammer seems to be all the rage -- or at least a very good part of it -- at the SharePoint Technology Conference at the Boston Park Plaza hotel here this week.

"Yammer is going to be transformed," Jill Hannemann of Rockville, MD-based Portal Solutions predicted in her morning session on social and SharePoint Wednesday. "It may not even be called Yammer" and may just be the connectivity tool that will be the thread throughout all of the different products in Office 365.

Hackers for Hire: Bootcamp Grads Can Help Staff Dev Teams

2014-17-September-collaborative-programming.jpgAccording to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for software developers is projected to grow 22 percent through 2022 – much faster than the average job growth rate of 11 percent – due to the major increase in demand for computer software.

Programming bootcamps have been cropping up across the country to help meet this demand, as well as close the skills gap that many claim exists between recent college graduates and workers with real-world skills.

With intense coding curriculum designed to enhance the skills of experienced coders and jumpstart those with little coding background, these coding programs could offer a real solution to companies in need of programming talent or for those looking to develop their current staff.

5 Dangerous Ideas for Corporate American Leaders #velocityconf

2014-16-September-Dangerous-Idea.jpgSome people lead with the idea that some things are certain and absolute. Others assume nothing, besides change, is certain and lead from the idea that the ground beneath them is in a constant state of flux. John Allspaw, SVP of technical operations at Etsy.com, spoke in depth about this topic in his session, "PostMortem Facilitation: Theory and Practice of 'New View' Debriefings," at Velocity NY yesterday.

Why History (and the Enterprise) Will Be Kind to Steve Ballmer

2014-16-September-Ballmer.jpgWe hear a lot about Microsoft’s new direction, and we hear a lot about SharePoint. We haven’t heard a lot about how the one impacts the other, but if you’re buying into collaboration (and odds are that you are) then you ought to be thinking about it. And if you think about it just a little, you’ll realize that Steve Ballmer mapped all of this out years ago. We just weren’t listening.

Jive Bridges the Gap to Office 365

If you don’t talk to Office 365, you don’t have an enterprise play. At least when it comes to productivity apps, that is.

OK, maybe that’s not true quite yet. But it soon will be.

That’s why Jive, a leading provider of communication and collaboration solutions for business, has built software connectors for Microsoft Office 365, including Outlook Online, Office Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

“We’re bridging the gap between on-premise and cloud versions of Microsoft Office and SharePoint to make collaboration and communication seamless,” said Colleen Jansen, vice president of product marketing at Jive.

Do You Know Why You Collaborate? #gartnerpcc

2014-9-15 collabroation processes diagram at Garttner PCC.jpg

There’s no point in collaborating if you don’t know why you're doing it. This may seem obvious, but not enough companies think about the "why" of collaboration before rushing in to buy technology.

Collaboration changes enterprise processes. The line between traditional structured processes and unstructured processes is starting to blur. What was once structured, orderly information exchanges and processes have become unstructured information swaps that change with every new process initiated.
