Lotusphere 2012

Torrance, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2012

Computer Architechs International Corporation (CAI), an organization that provides premier consulting services centered around social business, today announced Social Business Online 2012, an online conference system that allows conference attendees to get the most out of their conference experience.

Social Business Online 2012 opened on Jan. 5, 2012, and will be available to attendees of IBM’s social business conferences, IBM Connect and Lotusphere 2012, until Feb. 3, 2012. This online tool is a powerful source of information that enhances the conference experience for attendees by allowing them to “get social” and “go mobile” when creating their conference schedules, networking and chatting instantly with other attendees, setting status updates, acting on social recommendations, interacting with Twitter feeds, creating profiles, participating in communities and forums, creating wikis, sharing favorite bookmarks, microblogging and so much more.

Social Business Online leverages the power of XPages seamlessly integrated with many of IBM’s social collaboration and mobile tools. It allows users to experience Social Business for themselves from almost anywhere an Internet connection is available. In fact, the online conference system can be accessed from almost any mobile device.

Besides the full online conference system, accessible by the most popular browsers, users have access to a mobile version of the site from advanced mobile devices with smaller screens. Users who don’t sport a tablet or smartphone can still mobilize by accessing the Mobile Lite site, which supports most Internet-connected mobile phones with less advanced browsers.

In addition, CAI also provided native conference agenda applications for the Apple iOS, Google Android, and RIM Blackberry devices for ultra-portability. These applications allowed users to download the conference agenda right to their devices, search, view and schedule sessions, and also synchronize their schedules with their accounts on the Social Business Online 2012 site. The applications also allowed attendees to automatically update the Agenda when any changes were made to the Agenda on the main online site.

“The agenda mobile apps gave attendees the unique ability to view and schedule sessions while offline and then, with a click of a button, sync their schedules and the agenda with their conference accounts” said Reed Gesteland, President and CEO of Computer Architechs International Corp.

The schedule could also be synchronized to users’ own calendars with Apple iOS, Google Android, Nokia SymbianOS, and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices via the site’s Lotus Notes Traveler server. Finally, if that wasn’t enough mobile support already, a user’s schedule could also be exported as an iCal file to be imported into any calendar application that supports the iCalendar standard.
