I am pretty sure that by now you may have heard / read plenty about the great things that are happening in Las Vegas at IBM‘s Impact 2009 event. Lots and lots of really interesting nuggets and knowledge snippets are coming through from various different places. However, there was one in particular that caught my attention earlier on today, when I bumped into it, since it reminded me very clearly of a recent blog post I put together under the title “Why I’m an IBMer“.
Yes, it is another interesting and enlightening video clip, in this case, spread around by my good friend, and fellow IBM colleague, Andy Piper‘s “Smart Work for a Smarter Planet. I’m an IBMer“, and which comes to reflect on the power of social networking and how it will shape our business relationships in the corporate world in the near future or right as we speak already for that matter!
The YouTube video lasts for nearly two minutes and it surely is a treat to go through. There are lots of very relevant tidbits on the topic of A Smarter Planet and how we, knowledge workers of the current knowledge economy we are engaging with, need to smarten up in order to get done more with less effort, i.e. keep improving our own productivity. In sort, work smarter, not necessarily harder… Does it ring a bell? (heh)
So I thought I would spend a few minutes today sharing that video clip with you folks over here. That way you can have a look on why I decided to chose the title of this blog post as what it is showing right now and why I’m still sold on the idea that social computing is going to change the business world as we know it by making it smaller, more human, more participative, less hierarchical, more authentic, more transparent and trustworthy. In short, the Enterprise of the Future!
Yes, indeed, I’m an IBMer, too!
