White Paper: Leading Enterprises Turn to SharePoint to Build Productive Social Networks
Leading Enterprises Turn to SharePoint to Build Productive Social Networks
Although people all over the world have been adopting social networking tools with gusto – there are 700 million people on Facebook, 50 million on LinkedIn, 150 million on Twitter; 70 million post blogs, and an untold number of wikis – companies have been slow to recognize the potential of putting these tools to work for their organization. In many companies, employees are creating improvised internal professional networks through external solutions like Facebook and blogs, but the communications are neither visible nor coordinated enough to create much value for the company. Recently, thanks to the new social networking capabilities being built into content management solutions such as Microsoft SharePoint, some companies are adding enterprise-wide social networking capabilities as a way to bolster collaboration, remove barriers to innovation, and standardize best practices across continents.
To gain a better understanding of how some businesses are successfully using social networking solutions to foster collaboration and disseminate knowledge, Mainstay Partners conducted an independent assessment of three Fortune 500 companies with a strong international presence that have deployed Microsoft SharePoint Server to deliver social networking capabilities to their employees worldwide.
