The Business Value of Social Networking on Corporate Intranets

Ektron's CTO, William Cava, to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

This Session will demonstrate why social networking is more than just marketing buzz; it is a relational model that has been used for years to define the way human beings interact, and it is the next step in the natural evolution of the Web.

  • Learn how organizations can improve workflow and productivity by utilizing social software and online collaboration.
  • See how social networking can be used to efficiently define and enable how work actually gets done on your intranet.
  • Discover how your intranet can become a dynamic corporate knowledge base that will scale with the company as it grows and will still maintain usability on it own.
  • Understand why no single user, even the administrator, can possibly identify all of the assets, users and groups and how they need to be connected to each other for your intranet to be a truly collaborative business tool. See how social networking will naturally scale your intranet to define these nodes and ties.
