IBM to launch gamification partnership in IBM Connections with Bunchball ? #ls12
Tags :Lotusphere gamification badges
Hot off the email press, I received notice that an announcement will be made about a relationship of some type between IBM and Bunchball, a gamification platform provider at this weeks Lotusphere 2012 and IBM Connect.
Bunchball already provides services and integration to Jive and Salesforce, so bringing it into IBM Connections through a launch at Lotusphere 2012 makes perfect sense.
Nitro provides the industry’s most comprehensive set of game mechanics, including challenges, achievements, and virtual goods, as well as a powerful analytics platform.
Designers: Create assets for trophies, virtual goods, widget skins, and notifications, and insert them all into the system via the Admin UI.
As you can see Bunchball would place gamification, badges, tropies and even virtual goods into the IBM Connections environment to drive user adoption and engagement.
Bunchball is a cloud based solution also making it a key integration partner for the LotusLive suite of products. So look out for more when I get the full details on the relationship that IBM and Bunchball announce at Lotusphere 2012 or IBM Connect.
