Why Read This Report

IBM's recently announced Project Vulcan is the latest effort from a major vendor to articulate what the future holds for the world of information work. Although it is still taking form — and like any new idea, may ultimately fail — Project Vulcan extends the vision of an integrated, contextualized Information Workplace (IW) with a combination of proven core products, innovative user experiences, an open development strategy, and a key role for social analytics. Information and knowledge management (I&KM) professionals should track — and where possible participate in — Vulcan and other emerging IW solutions to prepare for substantial future transformations in the way people share and interact with information in the workplace.
