Live @ Lotusphere 2010: New Insights
Scott Laningham and I were able to experience two very cool things over and just after lunch.
First, we sat down for a collaboration market overview with Carol Galvin, who is currently the principle segment analyst for IBM Market Insights, focusing on IBM Software and Lotus in particular. It was a far-reaching discussion which included great insights on the collaboration software market (including a segment breakdown and geo view), as well as some insights on the “consumeratization of IT.”
Keep your eyes peeled here in the Turbo blog and on Scott’s blog for that podcast soon.
Then, we had an opportunity to visit with the IBM Innovations Lab, where I saw several mind-blowing advancements in social data visualization, and some of the LotusLive Labs breakthroughs we heard about earlier in the week.
I wish I could just beam everyone here and do a walkthru (Can somebody bring back William Shatner!?), but Scott did some interviews there which we hope to have up later which will give you direct access to some of the insights we found there.
In terms of highlights, I saw the Shared Presentation experience, which would allow for real-time crowdsourcing of presentation building (No, give ME the mouse!), as well as an email/task in-box triage tool that’s about one of the coolest things I’ve seen in Orlando.
It’s predicated on David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” principles and allows you to quickly “triage” your in-box. I’m praying Lotus will integrate that into the next version of Notes and Notes Traveler!
Things are slowly winding down here, but it looks as though there’s still plenty of traffic and plenty of folks to network with and learn from.
We’ll be here until the (almost) bitter end!
