First, thank you to everyone who visited us over the past week to learn more about our DataHive perspective! For those of you who may have missed some of our initial presentations and social outreach, here’s what you missed.
We started with a Hello World! post so you know who we are and what we do. We are focused on helping companies to manage the combined challenges of Big Data and social media through our workshops, strategic advice, and hands-on product development work.
DataHive Principal Lynne Baer (@lynnebaer) took an initial look at Pinterest’s Place Pins to show how companies could use this new functionality both for external hospitality and internal sales and service functions.
Based on our visit to Dreamforce 2013, DataHive gave a fair, but critical, assessment of where Dreamforce missed opportunities to fully engage their audience.
We also took on gamification by reminding you that Candy Crush Saga can help your company, but only if you learn the right lessons.
DataHive provided a guest article to our publication partner, CMSWire on “What You Need to Know about Enterprise Mobility for 2014.” There are a lot of changes happening with mobile devices, management, and application development and you will be affected.
We also took part in several key Twitter chats including:
Get Real Chat, where we shared our views on social trends in 2014 along with several great IBM Connect speakers: Pam Moore (@PamMktgNut), Jeanne C. Meister (@JCMeister), Beverly Macy (@BeverlyMacy), Mark Fidelman (@markfidelman), Matt Ridings (@techguerilla), and Sandy Carter (@sandy_carter). Of course, DataHive hopes to join this illustrious group soon and share our own insights at a future IBM Connect!
CloudChat, where Hyoun Park was a featured panelist on the future of the cloud and joined by thought leaders Ric Telford (@rictelford), James Watters (@wattersjames), Holger Mueller (@holgermu), Rob Enderle (@enderle), AJ Bowles (@AJBowles), Marcia Kaufman (@makaufman), and Christopher Ferris (@christo4ferris). If you want to find out the most important changes in the cloud for 2013 and 2014, you need to review this chat and follow all of these people on Twitter.
IBMSWChat, which focuses on the Social Workplace. The key topic we sought to understand was how to manage social recognition. This problem combines the use of social media and networks with the challenges of Big Data and business intelligence, making it a key topic for DataHive.
BIWisdom, which is typically managed by the father of Business Intelligence, Howard Dresner (@HowardDresner). This week, guest host Gregory Lewandowski (@lewandog) from Cisco traversed the challenges of data governance, which DataHive also sees as a core challenge as end users and mobile devices increasingly become the core of raw data collection and integration efforts.
And if you were in Frankfurt, Germany two weeks ago, we might have met at World Class Mobile Collaboration 2013 where Hyoun Park spoke (auf Englisch!) about the financial challenges of BYOD, the technical debts companies face by implementing mobility poorly, and the unfunded mandates your organization faces.
So, it has been a busy week! If you’re interested in more information about any of these topics or want to hear more about our presentations, custom projects, and workshops, please follow up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
