IBM still in the lead

I was pleasantly surprised to again see that IDC for the third year running is ranking IBM as the leader for enterprise social software. As a IBM business partner we too are seeing the increased demand for this transformational software although implementation and realization of the potential is oftentimes hard in smaller companies without the budget to drive adoption with community managers or evangelists. It will be interesting to follow this market and see when and if competitors will catch up. For now – good job IBM!!
