Live from Lotusphere ? Sametime to Connect to AIM, Y! and Google Talk
I’m impressed so far with Lotusphere here in Orlando, but no announcement has been so welcome as the news that Sametime will now connect with AOL Instant Messenger and Yahoo! To boot, they’ve announced an intention to do the same with Google Talk. Wait, someone's missing -- oh, right. Well, those three are very good.
Lots of applause for sending a chart from a Powerpoint slide in a Sametime IM window, and some of the functions that try to mimic the modes of team interation (maybe too much?) like: Alert, Freejam, Instant Poll, SkillTap (expertise location).
The Business of Going DigitalDigital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
