PermaLink "Suite!" say enterprise CIOs about social software.03/22/2007 08:30 PM

Via Nick Carr, Mike Gotta and others comes news of a new Forrester report on Web 2.0 that reveals 61% of 119 CIOs surveyed would prefer a suite of social software solutions from an established enterprise software vendor rather than a piecemeal approach using single function Web 2.0 technology from startups.


This is a strong validation of IBM's strategy with the upcoming Lotus Connections social software suite. Lotus Connections provides blogs, profiles, social bookmarks, communities and activities in an integrated platform, any single piece of which could be used separately but are even more valuable when used in concert. Couple those tools with Sametime awareness and instant messaging and you have a superior toolset for leveraging newly discovered resources and knowledge immediately.


One small issue for IBM is that one of the surveyed technologies — wikis &mdash: is not part of Connections, although they are part of Lotus Quickr.
