Enterprise 2.0 Tools/Platforms: Let's Hear from You
Starting in August, I'll be taking a look at a variety of Enterprise 2.0 tools and platforms. If you'd like to see your product reviewed here on the Enterprise 2.0 blog, please send a note to itsinsider at gmail dot com. Admittedly, I'm not a tech blogger, but I will be looking for the value add products bring to the broader concerns related to introducing these products to the enterprise (ease of use, cost, integration with legacy/large enterprise applications, security, governance, and so on).Please be prepared to address the following:1. Company background (who are the founders/# of employees/how did it the company get started/financing?)2. Early successes (what is unique about the product/what value is it delivering to customers?)3. At least one customer case study.4. Who is the ideal customer for the product?We've also opened up Demo Thursdays at the 2.0 Adoption Council. We will reserve Thursday mornings at 9am ET for any vendor with a suitable enterprise-ready 2.0 offering. You can sign up to be considered here.
