Open Text Corporation introduced a solution for online “communities of practice” which bring together people in an organization with similar responsibilities or interests. The solution allows, for example, marketing professionals or purchasing managers to connect in ways they couldn’t before, providing a forum where they can share information and best practices, and improve processes. Called Livelink for Communities of Practice, the solution provides a central workspace in Livelink where members can publish relevant news, share documents, participate in member Weblogs, arrange online meetings and hold Webcasts. The solution also tracks the contributions of participants to help members identify experts in the community on specific subjects. With Livelink for Communities of Practice, each community workspace offers a newspaper-like front page with syndicated headlines and content sections, where interesting patterns and trends are “bubbled up” for the community. Livelink for Communities of Practice is available immediately and works with Livelink 9.2 or higher on all supported platforms. www.opentext.com
