IBM/Lotus User Forum – Summary

Before heading out to army reserve I wanted to post a quick wrap-up of yesterday’s IBM/Lotus User Forum. We had some 45 participants, customers and consultants, who came to hear two customer stories (which included live demo) and a live demo of IBM’s enterprise social software solution, Lotus Connections. Furthermore, it was great meeting, in person, some of my twitter and facebook friends – with all that social, it’s important to keep a personal touch, and actually, well, touching people and shaking hands.

Publicizing the event using social media only, we didn’t know what to expect in terms of attendance, but we were surprised by the number of people arrived, some registered at the day of the event! I’ll post a separate entry about lessons learned at a later date.

Now, the collateral from the user forum:
Dvir Reznik – Welcome Presentation (slides, Hebrew, downloadable)
Sharon Ben Haim, CTO, Ministry of Finance (slides, Hebrew, downloadable)
IBM enterprise social software solution – live demo ( blog)
Event photos (facebook)
IBM event website (presentations will be posted tomorrow)

Here’s the first presentation, my opening notes, from slideshare:
