What is IBM's internal usage of the new Domino blog template?

by Volker Weber

I recently attended an IBM press event, where they claimed leadership in Web 2.0 technologies, especially in the social networking space. There was some interesting data, for instance that IBM has been using blogs for 3 years now, and that there currently are 2500 IBM blogs, most of them internal.

Now I was wondering how many of these blogs already tested the new IBM blog template for Domino 7.0.2 and how many are going to convert to it in the next 3 month. Does anybody have any data on that?

I can't speak for current usage but IBM was using a version of Roller for internal blogs. See comments on this post.

Assuming that 3600 blogs was correct in the middle of 2005, and that the number went up and not down, then 2500 must have been quite an old data point.

Anyway, I have heard so much about the benefits of blogging directly in the Notes client yesterday, that there must be a sizeable portion on Domino now, since Notes is available to every IBM knowledge worker.

Is that a trick question (Fangfrage,mir fiel nichts besseres ein)?
I would not be surprised if large portions of the IBM Intranet is based on Portal and Websphere (not saying that Domino is not used)!?

No, it is not a trick question. I assume that IBM has Domino hosting. So it should be possible to host blogs there. And it should also be possible to integrate Domino applications into a portal.

The latest stats from the internal IBM blogging system called BlogCentral:
- 25.000 blogs in total
- 3.500 blogs with 2 or more entries
- 55.000 blog entries in total with 53.000 comments.

BlogCentral is still based on Roller.

Per, thanks for the update.
