The IM in the "CA IM Community" is not for the IM product (which is actually called IM2.0 and is a combination of PM2.0, Spectrum, and NFA). The Infrastructure Management community refers to Infrastructure Management as a concept. The UIM product is expected to become the flagship product in the IM space, so it makes sense to me from that perspective that UIM become part of this community.
That said, the addition of the UIM users has caused an uptick in the content related to UIM. Since Jive only allows following an entire community or individual content, having multiple products in the same community doesn't necessarily make sense. For example, i'm not vested in all the products in this community, however because of the way following works, i get emails on all the products. Adding UIM has changed my relevant email percentage from 15% to about 8%. Nobody likes getting irrelevant email notifications and it could eventually lead to people disengaging from the community. However, it was done this way because the existing community leadership model needed like products to be together in the same community. Since that's changing shortly (to not having dedicated community members as volunteer leaders), having the products in one community doesn't really make sense any more.
SamCreek, MelissaPotvin, Melanie_Giuliani, J.J.Lovett: Is CA open to the option of splitting out each product into its own jive place? Is there a reason i'm missing for keeping these products within a single community/place? Splitting them into individual communities will allow for individual product follows, hopefully leading to less irrelevant emails. I see a difficulty when a single post spans multiple products, but that gap can be addressed with tags, cross linking, good moderation, etc.
