IBM has announced new cloud-based collaboration services to help U.S. federal government organizations adopt social computing. The new set of social collaboration services, delivered on IBM’s Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)-compliant Federal Community Cloud, addresses the administration’s drive to adopt a “cloud-first” policy which is designed to help the government improve its overall IT efficiency and delivery of services to citizens, IBM said in a press release. IBM’s new cloud services include social software such as wikis, microblogs, communities, staff profiles, instant messaging, web conferencing and email. IBM’s services also support popular mobile devices including Android phones and tablets, Apple iPhone 4 and iPad, BlackBerry, and Nokia Symbian platform. Industry analyst firm IDC ranked IBM first in the social platforms market share for 2009 and 2010.
