Oliver Heinz

West Newton MA


Married to another PM @ IBM

Dad of 2 kids and a dog

Passionate about tennis, food, photography and electronic gadgets.

As Community Manager for IBM Collaboration Solutions, I work with these fantastic groups of dedicated professionals:
- IBM Champions for ICS
- Global Customer Partnership Council (GCPC)
- Global User Groups related to ICS products and technologies
- SocialBizUG.org
- and the overall ICS Community

I joined IBM with the acquisition of ONEstone Information Technologies in 1999. We founded the company 3 years earlier in Paderborn, Germany and 12 of us made the move over to Cambridge to work for IBM / Lotus. Most folks have moved back but a few of us found a new home in the Boston area and are still around.

Since then I have held various Program, Project and Product Management Positions, primarily in the ICS team. Some of my favorite projects have been the design, build out and move of the IBM Mass Lab as well as running various session tracks for Lotusphere / Connect since 2007.

I am especially interested in the mobile space and manage to be both an Apple and Android fanboy :)

So let's connect on anything social and mobile, you find me on most platforms as 'oliheinz'!
