IBM announces tools for Social Networking

January 23, 2007

IBM is soon going to launch a new product to push Social Computing to the enterprise. Called Lotus Connections, this product bundles features like Blogs and Social Bookmarking along with some other features.

Although, tools for social networking have been available for quite a while, an organization has to buy different products for different feature (e.g., a different product for Wikis and another one for a Blog, both of which were integrated with a Portal) and as a result ended up with multiple user repositories, multiple technologies and other such redundancies.

Read my take on this here.
