re: Enterprise Social Networks: A Guided Tour
I got a flurry of calls after this was published from vendors and their PR representatives wondering why they had been left off the list. Even though I tried to make it clear, this was not a "top 10" list, a lot of people read it that way. I called it a "guided tour" with the idea of presenting a sampling of the styles of enterprise social networking. As it is, the screen shots start to look redundant after a while, and I don't know that showing a dozen more user interface variations would have helped explain the landscape any better. This market is still at an early enough stage that the proliferation of platforms makes it difficult to even attempt a comprehensive list.
For the record, some of the other significant vendors / products include:
-- Tibco Tibbr
-- Moxie Software Employee Spaces
-- Atlassian's Confluence
-- Neudesic Pulse
-- Socialtext (shown in the Motley Fool example)
-- BroadVision Clearvale
-- OpenText Social Workspace
... and I'm sure there are a few more that I'm leaving off the list.
My current quest is to find more case studies of organizations that have put these platforms to productive use.
