  • Patent number: 10298676
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for enabling digital asset reuse. Users are each associated with a collection of digital assets and each user and each asset is assigned an eminence value. When a first user initially accesses an asset, the asset is copied to the first user's collection, thus indicating the first user's favorable view of the asset. When a second user accesses the first user's copy, the asset is copied to the second user's collection, and the eminence of the first user and of the asset are increased. If a third user accesses the second user's copy, the asset is copied to the third user's collection and eminence values of the first and second users and of the asset increase. The second user may locate an asset in the first user's collection through means that include the second user's decision to “follow” the first user.

  • Patent number: 10002181
    Abstract: In an approach for providing tagging for problem resolution that works across multiple collaboration channels, a processor receives an indication of a problem statement. A processor monitors a collaboration channel for a new tag. A processor analyzes the new tag to determine a type of tag. A processor sends a notification of the new tag to the collaboration channel. A processor stores the new tag to a database of tags. A processor forms a cluster of correlated tags. A processor sends a notification of the cluster of correlated tags and a recommended action. A processor monitors the collaboration channel for an information request. A processor matches the information request with at least one tag in the database. A processor sends a notification of matches of the information request with the at least one tag found to the collaboration channel. A processor updates the tags with received information.

  • Publication number: 20170372252
    Abstract: A method and system for automatically generating a virtual assisted task is provided. The method includes establishing secure connections between a hardware device and databases external to the hardware device. A group of tasks associated with an individual are identified and available timeframes associated with an availability of the individual are determined. A first potential score and maximum score for each task are computed. The first potential score is compared to each maximum potential score and in response, a subset of tasks are automatically selected. The subset of tasks are mapped to the available timeframes and results of the mapping a cached within a caching circuit of the hardware device. Results of the caching are presented via the hardware device.

  • Patent number: 9628551
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for reusing digital assets and automatically updating user and asset eminence values associated with each asset reuse. Users each control a collection of digital assets and each user and each asset is assigned an eminence value that represents a relative importance of a user or asset. When a first user accesses an asset, that asset is copied to the first user's collection. When a second user accesses the first user's copy, the asset is copied to the second user's collection, and the eminence of the first user and of the asset are increased. When a third user accesses the second user's copy, the asset is copied to the third user's collection and first-user's, second-user's, and asset's eminence values increase. The second user may automatically locate an asset in the first user's collection by “following” the first user.

  • Publication number: 20170078229
    Abstract: In an approach for dynamically linking a core problem and associated sub-problems during an information technology (IT) critical situation, a processor detects a creation of a problem statement, wherein the problem statement includes a first tag. A processor creates a first collaboration channel based on the first tag associated with the problem statement, wherein the first collaboration channel is a communication medium. A processor identifies at least one subject matter expert based on the first tag. A processor sends an invitation to the subject matter experts to join the first collaboration channel. A processor links the problem statement with an associated sub-problem statement and an associated navigational flow, wherein the associated navigational flow is a way information flows between a problem and various sub-problems pertaining to the problem, and wherein each problem and sub-problem can be further broken into new sub-problems at any stage by any authorized participant.

  • Patent number: 9208518
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for increasing the sales of a retailer. A unit, referred to herein as the “retailer promotions device,” generates a group offer for a set of users/customers to purchase a product based on intelligent analytics (e.g., real-time attributes/dynamics such as the strategy in selling the remaining inventory). A group offer refers to an offer to sell a product at a promotional price if a number of users (e.g., users of mobile devices and/or customers online and/or customers in a physical store) agree to purchase the product at the promotional price within a time period. The group offer is sent to targeted users/customers via online and mobile devices as well as via electronic displays and kiosks in the physical store. By using real-time attributes/dynamics to generate group offers that can be sent to targeted users/customers, the sales of the retailer are likely to be increased.
