Social Connections V goes Swiss!

320px-Flag-map_of_Switzerland.svgAfter much deliberation, we are delighted to announce the location for Social Connections V!!

The international and independent IBM Connections user group will be visiting beautiful Zurich, Switzerland on June 28th 2013!

IBM Switzerland has graciously offered us the use of their IBM Client Center and it already promises to be a busy day. Sponsors are being lined up as we speak and abstract submissions are open for speakers interested in speaking at this wonderful event. As at our previous events we will be offering three tracks  (Management, Administration/Development, Case Studies) of 30 minute sessions to ensure there is something for everyone, regardless if you are a user, an administrator, a developer or a manager interested in Social Business.

As with all our events we are also planning on providing a full ‘social’ evening program so that people can continue the discussion they had during the day well into the night.

We are thrilled to organize our next Social Connections in the land of mountains, Swiss cheese and chocolates and we look forward to seeing you there!

Social Connections
Although IBM Connections has been in the marketplace since 2007 it is still a relatively new product by IBM/Lotus standards. The larger LUGs (Lotus User Groups – such as UKLUG and ILUG) tend to focus on traditional Lotus technologies – Notes, Domino, a little Sametime and TDI with lots of the newer XPages thrown in the mix. The WUGs (WebSphere User Groups) tend to concentrate on core WebSphere technologies such as the Application Server, Portal and Process Server. In addition, these events can be very technical in nature. Therefore we feel there is a definite space for a Connections user group with a strong focus on social collaboration technology, aimed at both existing and prospective customers and partners, and at individuals with both business and technical perspectives. We meet twice annually, in late Spring/early Summer and again in late Autumn/Fall, and from 2015 onwards we will be splitting the events between the USA and Europe. In addition, through the use of these great social tools, we aim to keep a dynamic and lively online community going all-year round! The events will be social in nature, with a strong desire for real face-to-face networking and knowledge sharing as well as delivery of useful content.
