Companies using IBM's Rational and Tivoli product will breathe easier today, thanks to new, integrated versions of nine tools that the company says will facilitate communication and closer collaboration between software development and support teams in the enterprise. What's more, prices will remain where they are, and the updates are free for current subscribers. According to the company, the integrations are intended to address individual frustration points that it sees being experienced by teams, particularly those of the geographically dispersed variety, and improve efficiency for organizations using both through automation. One of the four couplings involves Rational ClearQuest, which development …

Google said on Wednesday that it was killing its Wave collaborative development environment, citing lack of interest, according to published reports such as [URL="http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704017904575409873762885194.html?mod=googlenews_wsj"]in [/URL]the [I]Wall Street Journal.[/I] Blog entries from Google appeared as recently as July 27; in fact, the Google Wave [URL="http://googlewave.blogspot.com/"]blog [/URL]does not yet have any information about the shutdown, which was announced on the main Google blog.

Hey all, Just thought I'd drop in and say hello. Why? Because it's so annoying when you join a new forum and never use it. ;-) I've been in software B2B for about 15 years, mostly as a public relations guy, but rather than focused on pitching editors at trade magazines like Dr. Dobb's, have been more interested in building communities with my customers, getting them to help one another, share ideas, code, etc. that it only made sense that I check out what others like Dani are doing. I've started blogs that turned into Customer Community Portals, and have …

At just 25, [URL="http://www.crunchbase.com/person/aaron-levie"]Aaron Levie[/URL] is a youthful CEO. His company, [URL="http://box.net/"]Box.net[/URL], is a cloud-based storage and collaboration solution. He originally conceived and developed Box in his dorm room with a friend when he was just 19 years old because he was simply looking for a way to solve a problem of sharing files online. He has grown the company from a pure online storage play to an enterprise collaboration environment and has set his sites on content management. He's not there yet, but he's an unabashed cloud computing advocate and I asked him 5 questions about his business. [ATTACH]14949[/ATTACH] …

With all the coverage of last week's Windows 7 launch, it was easy to overlook news of the forthcoming release of SharePoint Server 2010, the next edition of Redmond's collaboration platform. A public beta is expected next month, which according a speech given by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer last week will demonstrate significant new functionality. What Ballmer *didn't* directly confirm in his speech was [recent speculation](http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2009/10/21/urnidgns852573C4006938800025765600786B43.DTL) that that by June of 2010, the platform will no longer ride along with Windows Server products, but instead be offered stand-alone. Helping to fuel the speculation about platform status of [SharePoint](http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint) 2010 was …

Users of GoogleDocs will soon have reason to celebrate. Google this week announced in a [url=http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2010/01/upload-and-store-your-files-in-cloud.html]blog post[/url] that its free online document collaboration platform will soon store files of all file types, rather than just those it can edit (plus PDFs). To understand the significance of this news, you'll first need to know a little about [url=http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/business/docs.html#utm_campaign=DocsUAF&utm_source=en-na-us-entblog-DocsUAF&utm_medium=blog]GoogleDocs[/url] (current users can skip to the next paragraph). If you're doing any document collaboration at all, you know that version control is the key. For example, let's say I create a Word doc and send it via email to Moe. He makes his …

I was on one of my Linkedin Forums and I saw a question about people who are using SocialText or SocialCast, both of which offer enterprise collaboration software for large companies and corporation who want to centralize all of their social media efforts and encourage collaboration. Has anyone here used or seen a demo of either of these and what were your impressions? I ask because while these are enterprise products targeted at large companies I can easily see these two products offered in smaller versions to try to capture the larger companies in the SMB market. And if I …

Good IT management doesn't take place in a vacuum. If you're going to make the right decisions and lead people in ways that will make them want to follow, you need an arsenal of information. Of course, overworked CIOs and IT managers don't have time to sift through hundreds of industry articles a week and news announcements a week, but there's lots of good information to be gleaned from your RSS feeds that go unread every day. Here are my 3-step process for keeping track og the latest IT news, filing it away for future reference, and sharing with your …

MindTouch [URL="http://wiki.mindtouch.com/Press_Room/Press_Releases/2008-07-23"]announced today[/URL] at the [URL="http://en.oreilly.com/oscon2008/public/content/home"]O'Reilly Open Source Convention[/URL] (OSCON) that a new version of its collaboration app MindTouch Deki "Kilen Woods" is ready for its close-up. Though it seems lately like you can't swing a cat (not that I would) without bumping into a new collaboration tool or suite of applications for the enterprise, you know you've got a good product on your hands when [URL="http://mashable.com/2008/05/07/mozillas-tower-of-babel-powered-by-mindtouch/"]the folks at Mozilla use it[/URL]. In addition to MindTouch Deki's collaborative capabilities, its also billed as a "collective intelligence platform." Deki is clearly a useful way to keep information flowing among employees, but …
