The benefits of IBM Connections is more than establishing a set of Social Business tools to improve communication and collaboration. If Connections is used as a open platform for sharing information and data, discussions, insights, ideas, opinions etc.,  it becomes a treasure of data containing a lot of knowledge about the company itself. This treasure can contain answers to questions like:

  • What is important, in general, for a department, at a location?
  • What are employees thinking about the products & service offerings, quality & support, the reputation of the company?
  • Ideas for improvements in terms of organization, products, marketing, sales?
  • Internal problems many colleagues are complaining about?

Who is driving discussions and progress? 

In this session we will show, how this treasure can be lifted by applying methods of business analytics and big data to IBM Connections. Come to see how Watson, Hadoop & Co. can bring additional value to your Connections investment.
