Sandy Kemsley’s writeup of IBMConnect highlights and updates is worth reading.  There are a couple of nuggets in particular to entice you to read the post:

I don’t know a lot about HR systems, although I’m seeing a huge potential to integrate this with operational systems such as BPM to drive analytics from the operational systems to the HR systems (e.g., employee performance measures), and even some from HR to the operational systems (e.g., learning management to push training to people at the point in their work when they need the training).

Agreed, lots of opportunity for improvement here.

Everything is focused on mobile: mobile meetings, chat, Connections including Content Manager access, Docs and more.

Yep, expecting more of the same focus at IBM Impact later this year.

As always after an IBM briefing, I’m left with a sense of almost overwhelming complexity in the number — and possible combinations — of products that make up these integrated solutions. Powerful: yes. But expect some rough edges in the integration.

I think this is generally the biggest challenge for IBM – to rationalize their product offerings into SKUs that make sense for buyers (their customers) and sellers (their sales people and ecosystem).

IBM has done a good job with this in BPM and Rules, but there’s a lot of ground to cover elsewhere in the IBM portfolio.
