Lotus Notes enables the Australian Bureau of Statistics to collaborate across boundries, automate, manage and find information. The organization informs decision-making within the government and community by providing accurate data that allows people to research and to develop social policy, based on real information rather than guesses and hunches. LANE MASTERSON: I’m Lane Masterson. I head the Technology Infrastructure branch of the Australian Bureau of Statistics. So, the Australian Bureau of Statistics is Australia’s national statistical organization and our role is to actually inform decision-making within government and within the community by providing accurate data that allow people to research and to develop social policy based on real information rather than just on guesses and hunches. So, it’s fair to say that the ABS runs on Notes effectively. Notes is part of all our key statistical processes. We have staff around Australia and often they work in virtual teams. So, the ABS has used Quickr for a number of years to host some external forums. So, there are topics that are of importance to the people outside the Bureau. One of the key ones is trying to work out what questions might be on the next census. We host a Quickr forum so people can come and discuss what questions might be asked in the next census. We use Notes as a key collaboration hub. We have our work group databases and our discussion databases where groups get together to discuss topics that are of importance to them. These are a repository for important information for the group. They’ll also use that as a team calendar to schedule meetings that are important to the group as well. So, when the ABS team introduced Notes in the late 90’s, we went through a large process of actually automating most of our admin workflows. So, as a manager I can approve travel or leave or purchase requests from my staff inside my Notes environment. Someone raises a request to purchase a piece of equipment, an e-mail comes to me, I sign it off, there’s a workflow that’s audited throughout the application development environment so that I can go back and track exactly who approved what at what time and that all happens inside the Notes environment. Everything the ABS does is using Notes Domino. Effectively, it allows us to very quickly collaborate. It allows us to automate all our workflow. It allows us to manage all our information in a way that makes it easy to find information and share it across the organization. It’s fair to say that Notes Domino is a key part of what the ABS does and it enables the ABS to work in a way that it does. Lotus knows everything about the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Asian Paints' CIO speaks about IBM Lotus Notes/Domino as the organization's primary platform for Email and Instant Messaging, quickly connecting employees globally. IBM Portal technology allows Asian Paints to simplify content management and provide access to various users, including retailers. MANISH CHOKSI: My name is Manish Choksi. I am the Chief of Corporate Strategy and the CIO for Asian Paints Limited. So, Asian Paints is a coatings manufacturer. We make a full line of coatings. We make it for both decorative products as well as industrial products. So, the Notes and Domino platform we moved to about three years back. It is our primary e-mail and instant messaging platform for connecting all our employees globally. So, Lotus Sametime has been our instant messaging platform, but importantly it’s also the presence of platform. So, we use Sametime for Quickr Activity between dispersed employees. We’ve got about 90 offices in India and we’ve got, maybe, another 13 or 14 globally and it allows us to remain connected. It allows us to see who is at work and really get across messages really quickly to each other. Portals are such a good means to manage content and to be able to give unified access to applications for a whole set of users. It also allows us to give the access in a way where we can fuse technology from many different parts of the application to be able to deliver sort of the single front end to the users that use it. This technology is very critical to access and to have a relationship with our retailer network application paints, uses 25,000 retailers to go to market and services customers. And we feel that by deploying Portal technology we would be able to have better set of communication and give better access to our retailers to be able to connect with us. You spend too much of time waiting for trains or planes to get you to a place and waiting in traffic if you’re using automobiles. So, I have a feeling that the collaborative technology from Lotus will help us at one point of time make an impact to the environment in a small way, but probably a greater impact on workforce productivity. At Asian Paints Lotus knows how to connect people to each other.

Cologate-Palmolive uses Lotus products to drive innovation and keep over 20,000 knowledge workers connected. By utilizing powerful enterprise collaboration and messaging tools such Lotus Notes and Domino, Lotus Connections and Sametime, employees can find subject matter experts, shorten product cycles and empower end-users to collaborate. MITCH COHEN: I’m Mitch Cohen with Colgate-Palmolive and I’m the manager of Messaging and Collaboration Systems. We have 300 locations across over 117 countries with 20,000 knowledge workers spread throughout the world. We’ve been a Lotus customer for many years now and we use the core Lotus Notes and Domino Suite, that is our e-mail messaging platform, and we’re in the midst of a global rollout of Notes 8.0.2. We’re about 60 percent complete there and we intend to finish that this year. We’ve also, over the last few years, implemented Sametime, Quickr and now we’re in the middle of implementing Lotus Connections. So, there’s so many advantages to using Notes for calendaring, scheduling, and messaging, but we’re starting to see so much more as that client evolves into a collaboration onramp, not just an e-mail platform. With 20,000 knowledge workers spread geographically around the world one of our challenges is how do we connect all these people and Sametime was the beginning of that and we’ve actually created a culture in the company where part of being at work is being online. That enables people to actually find people and actually connect with them very easily on Sametime. Sametime is really a part of my daily life. I work within my group. We’re spread on any given day over three or four locations within the New York City area, so we don’t sit together. We interact a lot through Sametime itself. Social software is really changing the way we work as a company. As we implement some of the newer tools, we’re actually giving people the ability to stop finding a person by name and actually start finding a subject matter expert. So, when we started looking at the Connections package, what became obvious to us was that Profiles is the foundation to build around in Connections. By starting to have a richer Profile, and really when you look up a person, whether you find them by person or some other piece of information, you start to get a real picture of that person in terms of their formal reporting structure, but also they're very informal who’ve they’ve selected as their colleagues, what their social network is within the company. As we look to what’s coming next, we look at tools like Connections and then even further ahead to things like mashups as a way to reduce the workload on IT and there’s no way we have the resources to do every last request the business puts to us. Using the Lotus tools really helps us work more efficiently as a company. As we take the tools they integrate together nicely and what they’ve really let us do is let our people work situationally. So, by putting Quickr access in an e-mail client people are not pivoting and saying no, I need this document, I need to leave this environment and go get something else. If you look at Activities and Connections, it’s the same idea. I can work from where I am. If I’m in Activities, I can work there. If I’m in e-mail, I can work there. So part of that is actually making people work more efficient and not having them change tools ten times a day to be able to accomplish simple tasks that they need to, to get through their day. Lotus knows I have no idea how to make toothpaste, but I help people do it every day with collaboration tools.

VO: The average employee loses 5.3 hours per week on inefficient processes. Two thirds of employees believe there are colleagues who can help them do their jobs better, they just don’t know how to find them – and 42% of people say they are forced to make decisions with the wrong information at least once a week. Turns out, the way we work isn’t working. But what if there was a way for CIOs to take the busyness out of business? There is, and IBM can help. Every day, IBM helps millions of employees from companies around the world gain instant access to people and information through collaboration solutions. Optimizing talent and technology? That’s working smarter, not harder.

******* IT Director Anton Langeler from surf gear and equipment manufacturer O'Neill in Europe encourages his industry peers to collaborate with senior management. With this new perspective, Langeler encourages IT managers to be involved in strategic business decisions in addition to IT product development. "IT Director O'Neill Europe: I think the place of the CIO in senior management is so important. But I think if you, as CIO, sit at the senior management [table], it's wrong. You should try to turn it around. You should [provide] for every manager the added value to make the decision based on facts. Sometimes, if you work in a creative environment, it's not easy. Try to get management on the level that they need you. Then it's only a question of, ""Why is the CIO not in senior management?"" Then it makes your life 10 times easier. The struggling of many CIOs who don't sit in senior management is that they see some barriers, or they are too much focused on products, too much focused on delivering tools, and not linked directly to the strategy. I can tell you, every time, if we are in the budget phase, or we are in the roadmap phase, I'm the first one sitting with each department director or global director, together, [asking] “What are your plans?” Based on that I write directly, “What are your actions?” Sometimes I have, per year, at least 157 projects or actions that I would like to do, and how I combine it in my IT department. Based on that, my IT strategy is always aligned with the business. If you have, during your roadmap phase, the chance [to ask], “Where can I support you?” and you listen and take only one or two hours’ time with every global director or director of managers on the floor, you are sitting as soon as possible at the table of senior management.

***********/services/us/cio/ciostudy/lessons-learned.html?cm_mmc=agus_cioviddistr-20100219-uscxv100-_-v-_-clarke-_-yahoo Mobile phone provider Nokia's SVP and CIO John Clarke describes how a focus on collaboration tools among employees benefits workplace productivity. The initiative helps reduce costs, while elevating corporate social responsibility. John Clarke SVP & CIO, Nokia: I’ve been involved in Nokia in our Way of Working—our WOW—our mode of operation and thinking about how we get things done as a company. Being fairly new at that time to the company, I was more than fascinated by understanding how people work, how teams work, how employees work together. What we quickly identified was that it’s important that employees collaborate collectively. We are a global company. We have designers and engineers all over the globe, all of them with great insight. It was difficult to bring them together, to collectively engage. The innovation here was to quickly incorporate and deploy telepresence, the way of bringing in high-level, studio-quality facilities to let them easily talk to each other, to exchange information. You’d have designers, for example, working on a device. They’d like to talk about the screen or the keyboard layout. [We’d] give them such facilities that they could look at the detail, but they could be in California, in London, and in Tokyo. The innovation was to give them that facility. It had multiple benefits. For one, the designers loved it because they could meet without any need for flying or travel. The facility was so good it felt like being face-to-face. It also had a huge benefit from an environmental concern because employees are enthusiastic about environmental concern and social responsibility. It ticks another box in my view on how good they feel. Of course, it also saved us money through travel and wasted time. What we talked about quite actively here is less time flying, fewer air miles, and more family miles. Spend time with the family rather than spend time traveling at weekends. You can utilize technology. We discovered that by some external research. Actually, in utilizing that technology, it can have multiple benefits. It can help people do what people like to do, which is collaborate and engage.
