IT Briefcase 2013 Product Comparison Report — Enterprise Social NetworkingJune 4, 2013 No Comments
As Enterprise 2.0 gains momentum, companies are looking to resurrect their Intranet initiatives with social networking solutions. Before Web 2.0 technologies, early intranets were cumbersome and expensive to deploy which is why many never got off the ground. Current social networking offerings not only meet all the company needs of those early internal intranets — internal communications and collaboration, knowledge sharing, idea generation, customer engagement – but IT as well, with APIs to existing applications and multiple deployment options including on-demand ‘pay-as-you-go’.
This comparison guide looks at 9 Enterprise Social Networking products developed for the enterprise and SMB. You’ll learn about basic functions and features, pricing, features by vendor, deployment options (SAAS), packaged solutions and private cloud for the following 9 vendors: IBM, Jive Software, Microsoft, Mzinga Inc., Salesforce.com, Socialtext, Inc., Telligent Systems, Inc., Tibco Software, and VMware.
