Don’t know who you don’t know…??

This is a great story on the relevance of “person suggestion engines” and the power of discovering who you don’t know you don’t know.   IBM started doing this in the early 2000’s with the Discovery Server.  The studies found that there were relationships that could be gathered from content,  trying to make a connection between “people, places and things”.  Now we have content being produced to the rate of Pedibytes a day.  To be able to do something with this data, to gather statistics on potential connections and relationships that can be relevant to our personal and business lives.   The value of finding connections based context can have a powerful influence and drive to getting to know the people to share, gather and collaborate with to help safe time, money, and duplicate efforts in an organization. Read thoughts on how IBM is helping to foster this concept.

Hands on Tutorials and Trial Softwares for Self Education

Did you know that IBM offers resources for Self Education?  These tutorials offer you walk thru lab exercises that step you thru creation and understanding of the topic.  Links are available to download trial software if you are not currently using the required software for the exercises. 

Most of these are targeted to Developers.  But my moto is “Administrators must know something about developement and Develepors must know about Administration…” so Admins don’t be afraid to try these out…. there is huge value in explanding your knowledge to understanding how the applications work.

Here is the latest posted lab
