Actiance and IBM: Enabling Social Business
Most of the Actiance team is off at Lotusphere this week – and while I expect a few of them will be sneaking away from the show floor early to visit the “Magic Kingdom,” I’ve been left to captain the ‘blogging ship’ as it were. So, as a nod to the Actiance team at Lotusphere and to longtime Actiance partner, IBM, I wanted to write about some great news for IBM Connections users and Actiance customers.
At the event, Actiance is showcasing the result of a partnership with IBM – Vantage for IBM Connections.
When most people think about what the term “social business” means, they typically don’t think regulatory compliance and eDiscovery. But, businesses moving into social face increased regulatory compliance requirements. Add in the requirement that social content needs to be discoverable and suddenly the internal IT team is in over its head trying to make social business work.
That’s why Actiance has partnered with IBM to make it easier for IBM customers to adopt social collaboration tools. IBM customers can now access Vantage Compliance support for IBM Connections and IBM Sametime through the IBM Passport Advantage (PPA).
Vantage for IBM Connections provides a centralized governance, management, and security policy framework to ensure compliant, discoverable social content (it also allows granular policies to be defined between end users, groups of employees, and even non-employees).
I know the team is excited to showcase our new Vantage for IBM Connections compliance module (available exclusively through IBM) at Lotusphere this year. We’ve already seen a tremendous amount of interest in the module from customers looking to better enforce corporate use policies and enable collaboration.
If you’re attending Lotusphere this year, please stop by Actiance booth #521 – we’d love to hear about what your organization is doing to enable social business. If you have questions about Vantage for IBM Connections – let us know in the comments section below – we always enjoy talking social business!
