Social Media Revolution in the Workplace


Social Media has revolutionized the way we communicate and collaborate with friends and gather information from the web. The revolution is now making its way into the workplace. The way we work is changing rapidly, offering an enormous competitive advantage to those who embrace the new tools that enable agile and simplified information exchange and collaboration to distributed workforces and networks of partners and customers.

Collaborative technologies liberate the workforce from the constraints of legacy communication and productivity tools like email. It provides business managers with access to the right information at the right time through a web of inter-connected applications, services and devices. Collaboration allows the collective intelligence of many to bubble up to the surface, translating to a competitive advantage in the form of increased innovation and productivity.

In this panel we chat with industry experts and vendors to explore topics such as: Who is driving the adoption of collaborative tools? What are the biggest barriers to adoption and how does one prove the business value/ROI around social computing? How does one be a better evangelist with their organization?
