Ana12. Using Watson Work Services to to Power Collaborative Business Intelligence

Monday, May 8 | 16:25 - 16:45 | E. Gorilla 5

The basis of innovation is being able to build upon the work of others: collaborating. Yet Traditional BI ‘collaboration’ is too often one-to-many—e.g. emailing a spreadsheet or PDF—it’s like running a webinar where the participants are on mute. The key to collaborative BI is speed. Speed to a decision. Having better, more informed, fact-based conversations with the right people. Learn how to put business into your social business, by infusing the networks with meaningful analytics, personalized to your problem. Learn how to leverage the entire IBM Collaboration stack to enrich self-service BI with context, to build consensus. Collaborative BI helps teams take action in real time, to work on the right things, at the right time.

Str11. Social Connections take team collaboration to the next level with IBM Watson Workspace

Monday, May 8 | 16:00 - 16:20 | B. Okapi 2

In this session you will learn how the Social Connections user group took the jump from using Slack as our team collaboration tool to IBM Watson Workspace. We joined the limited beta program in July in a very early phase and functionality was still limited. However, the opportunity to help shape this new tool and provide valuable feedback to IBM was impossible to resist. We will explain why you should be using this new tool to increase your productivity by showing use cases from our team and why to choose IBM Watson Workspace over other tools on the market. Join our session and see how 9 fairly unorganized, devoted team members from all over the world organize 2 conferences a year in our free time using this tool.
