There are many IBMers in the IBM Collaboration Solutions team who love to help out our customers, partners and the Lotus community. IBM Collaboration Solutions (or ICS) includes a wide ranging portfolio of products covering Web Experience (Portal), Collaboration, Social Business and Unified Communications. For those of you who, like myself, have a fondness for the Lotus brand it is important to understand that ICS is a superset that still includes Lotus branded products, but ICS goes beyond the traditional Lotus heartland as we integrate more and more IBM technology such as analytics and sentiment tracking into the core stack and augment it with software from our middleware cousins in Tivoli, IM and Websphere.
Many of the ICS team keep up with the Lotus Community through tools like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and of course PlanetLotus.org. Sometimes watching, sometimes joining in. We also like to attend conferences and Lotus User Groups as well as participate in Podcasts, Tweetups and LotusBeers.
However, we can always do more to make ourselves available to the community so here in the UK we have started adding descriptions and contact details of more social and collaboration experts to help people find and connect to us. You can find these profiles in the "Meet the Experts" area on a whole bunch of web pages such as these...
If you click the "Options to Connect" it will bring up a full profile with links to our profiles on various social sites. So don't be a stranger, drop by and say "Hi".
