Today's tip is about getting maximum value of the BMC Communities from its most valuable asset - people.


Whether you are an experienced deep sea diver or a beginner to BMC Communities, I'm sure you'll find a lot of value with the BMC Social Groups. It's the most convenient way  to get in touch with users in your area and other parts of the world on topics of common interest.


It could also be the coolest networking tool through which you can get answers from a broader base of friends and often from unexpected sources!


Here's what a BMC user says about the value she finds in the blog: Are you familiar with everything on BMC Communities?



"My Co workers around the world interact within local groups in their region, Sharing common experiences has definitely given us a far greater maturity."
