The OU Analytics tool provides IEEE volunteer access to member data. It replaces SAMIEEE which was sunset in May. The OU Analytics User Group was formed to facilitate discussions among users, identify the top issues affecting user productivity, and provide a communication path between users and IEEE staff working to improve OU Analytics. The user group is currently meeting twice a month via WebEx. Meeting notes are published in the “IEEE OU Analytics” group in IEEE Collabratec. If you are interested in participating, contact Chris Gunning ( or Larry Hamerman (

IEEE’s online networking and collaboration platform, IEEE Collabratec™, connects IEEE members and technology professionals to their colleagues and peers. With over 120,000 users on the platform, the amount of personal connections and technical knowledge shared among the many users and communities continues to flourish.

In addition to the user-base growing, so have the platform’s features. Integrated messaging allows you to message people in your network, both individually and in groups. You can customize your home feed to display content most relevant to you. Enhanced search features help you discover relevant content in communities and your private groups. Using the IEEE Collabratec bookmarklet, a browser plugin, you can add content directly to your library from IEEE Xplore®, Web of Knowledge, ScienceDirect, and more. As an IEEE or Society member, you can sign up to be a mentor or search for a mentor using the mentoring feature.

Learn how you can incorporate IEEE Collabratec into your professional and IEEE volunteer activities. You can find videos, webinars, and other materials to help familiarize yourself with the platform and other activities.
