IBM

“A renewed era; 95 percent of what are termed standout organizations will focus more on getting closer to the customer over the next five years and 57 percent are more likely to allow their people to use social and collaborative tools.
It’s not a coincidence; leading organizations are using social collaboration to delight customers, to drive innovation, and to bring out the best in their business networks and employees. In a networked, On Demand world, the big performance gains come from greater collaboration between the individual parts of the network. These gains arise as companies collaborate better across traditional boundaries inside the firm, and externally with their business partners and customers. IBM calls the systems environment that supports this business behavior collaborative processing. From its inception more than 40 years ago, IBM’s mainframe was designed as a shared computing environment.”3
