It’s becoming general knowledge that being active in a social network can help you create richer content, garner broader feedback, help people not only find your work but discover you and eventually extend your social reach and influence. But how do these actions help enterprises be more productive and innovative? In this session we’ll reveal how user data and feedback have changed enterprise software including SharePoint 2010.
Some factors that have helped influence the social features of SharePoint were based on common trends occurring within organizations. These include:
· More receptiveness to open transparency for employees to colleagues’ activities and projects
· Influence of user provided feedback to aggregate high quality content
· Availability of multiple SME resources for information sharing
· Encouragement of employees to express their thoughts, opinions, and suggestions for innovation
Find out what social computing capabilities are available with SharePoint 2010, what customers have learned from their deployments, and how your end-user can benefit from these social features while doing their day-to-day tasks.
