Executives are sceptical of the value of social collaboration in the enterprise, and wait for it to go away. This is a mistake.   #collaboration   #seimani  
Executives are sceptical of the value of social collaboration in the enterprise, and wait for it to go away. This is a mistake. They forget that many of the world’s biggest brands could not exist without the open source movement that created free software allowing Facebook to process one trillion page views every month.

This year we’re publishing a series of articles about how to choose between WebEx and Skype For Business and crucially, when it’s perfectly acceptable for both of them to co-exist. This is the first in the series describing the key differences of the technologies at a high level. Microsoft’s speed of development has accelerated over recent years…

A must read....
No, it's not only you—some user interfaces today intentionally want to confuse and enroll.

Dar Ayniwen Villa Hotel is nothing short of an experience of paradise. Imagine the feeling you would get discovering an oasis in a desert except when you arrive it's better than that. Set in lush palm tree sprinkled grounds with its own bird sanctuary, it provides an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Even when the hotel is full (it only has accommodation for 18 people), you always feel as though you have the place to yourself. With rooms in the main house and in the gardens we stayed in Le Rotunde at the end of the gardens. It is exquisitely and authentically decorated with a beautiful round bedroom (and of course, a round bed), a bathroom that cleverly blends retro decor with modern facilities, and has its own swimming pool. Service and food is 5 star, actually the whole experience is 5 star. We couldn't get enough of Dar Ayniwen, and enjoyed it so much we just had to stay one more day. We'll be back again next year as sure as the sun shines, to visit a paradise that maybe the world's best kept secret.
