Building Software for a Socially Connected Workforce

In Chapter 15 of 16 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, product management executive Ramsey Pryor answers "What Has Your Software Product Manager Work Taught You About Team Collaboration?" Working as a product management executive building cloud-based collaboration platforms at IBM, Pryor learns how cloud software is helping users better manage life in a socially connected workforce. As office life becomes less 9 to 5 and personal life, via social media and mobile, becomes more present during office hours, Pryor finds collaboration software can bring a user's life together in and out of business to be more manageable.

Ramsey Pryor is a product management executive at IBM focused on cloud-based collaboration and security software products. Previously he was VP Product Marketing at Outblaze, acquired by IBM. Pryor earned an MBA from IESE Business School in Barcelona, Spain and a BA in Economics and Spanish from Northwestern University.
