From Crude to Contender: The Social Intranet, One Year Later


Online webinar, 12 - 1 p.m. EDT

Amidst the dog-eat-dog world of the intranet platform market, a new contender is developing into a serious alternative to bigger, more established solutions: the social intranet platform.

In the last year or two, we've witnessed the emergence of the social intranet. In its infancy the social intranet introduced many organizations to the tools they now consider vital to their success.

Now, the solutions powering these intranets are maturing and becoming increasingly powerful and robust, offering organizations unprecedented levels of interactivity and collaboration.

Organizations' strong demand for intranet 2.0 tools, coupled with their growing awareness of the platform's capabilities, means social software vendors are gaining significant foothold in the intranet platform market.

But with this newfound power in the industry comes responsibility. Social software vendors are constantly being challenged to meet the demands of diverse, rapidly-growing companies with high expectations for their intranet. Innovation is critical to success.

Those that do innovate and succeed are creating new and exciting intranet 2.0 tools that redefine traditional notions of what constitutes a "social intranet". Join us on May 26th to see industry professionals Toby Ward and IGLOO's Dan Latendre showcase new examples of these tools from a variety of social software vendors. The presenters will also give you an exclusive look into IGLOO's award-winning, continually-enhanced social intranet solutions.

The focus of the webinar will not be the social software vendors themselves, but rather the contributions they've made to redefining the social intranet by developing new and exciting intranet 2.0 tools, and the business impact they've had on organizations.

Why you should attend:

  • See new and exciting intranet 2.0 tools since the release of Prescient's Social Intranet Whitepaper last year.
  • See examples from a select few social software vendors that are changing the game.
  • Get an exclusive glimpse at how a social software company "socializes" with IGLOO's own social intranet Inside the IGLOO.
