IBM being social

by Volker Weber

IBM has a social business Twitter account. Twitter offered it up so I checked it out. This was their latest tweet. They really do understand social, don't they.

"No-charge" but also "IBM Software Subscription and Support is included in the product price for the first year".

If I want to download it, surely I click the 'Downloads' tab, right? No, that's just a whitepaper. Okay, there is a different site to download it from.

I haven't kept up to date but I thought IBM was backing away from Symphony and giving their progress and development back to the OpenOffice Foundation. Developing Symphony and embedding it into Notes was a good attempt to stop the Notes exodus, but it didn't work - the Notes exodus continued. There's a big feature gap between Office and OpenOffice / Symphony, and in key areas that a lot of enterprises are focusing on (like business intelligence and auditing / compliance).

Symphony is not my concern. Applying old marketing is.

Sometimes "Social" is to IBM the same as the "i" to Apple.
