Alive with #Jive 6.0: Welcome to the New #EMC Community Network
March 4, 2013 Leave a comment
The New #EMC #Community Network is live and to quote our Vice President Joseph Biden,”This is a big freakin deal”. I like to think that our team continues to lead the industry in community innovation as we were the first to adopt #Badgeville Game Mechanics for increasing member motivation and engagement and now being the first to upgrade to Jive 6.0 and feature the Activity Stream as the home page. For the last 4 months the Community and our IT team has been working long hours and weekends to accelerate the evolution of the EMC Community Network and am very happy to announce that it is LIVE and looking marvelous if I might say. There are many new features which you can learn more about via the community training videos and quick start guides but the one that I am most excited about is the Activity Stream. This provides members the ability to follow people, places and content of items they like and consume the information in a social stream (similar to Facebook or Twitter) rather than having to search and investigate what new discussions have been created.
Change is never easy and this update is fairly disruptive in how our members consume content but necessary to modernize the user experience, create a better integrated community with our website EMC.COM and lay the foundation for providing Mobile capabilities.
This is the combination of efforts by all the community managers, and project teams and has been the best collaborative experience of my career. So, Thanks to everyone that supported this initiative and look forward to seeing your engagement in the ECN.
