Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading IT research, analysis, and
strategy firm, today announced that it has initiated coverage of the social
enterprise market. The segment, headed by ESG Senior Analyst Tom
Petrocelli, incorporates six major components: collaboration, social
communications, web frameworks, the social portal, socially enabled
enterprise applications, and socially enabled customer experience sites.
Social enterprise is reaching critical mass, and ESG research indicates
social tools and collaboration solutions are increasingly driving IT
spending. Social tools such as instant messaging, chat, group
discussion, and micro-messaging are transforming how people work and
communicate. This form of collaboration breaks down temporal,
geographic, and functional boundaries, reducing the distances that
separate people in the modern workplace. As the business cycle turns
toward growth, these collaborative environments are essential for
driving value in organizations.
Every day, more companies developing new tools are announced, while
larger IT vendors have embraced the idea of social tools being critical
to busness processes. "We are at an inflection point in the growth
curve of the social enterprise," says Steve Duplessie, ESG founder and
senior analyst, "where social hooks are starting to make enterprise
applications far more usable and valuable to those that run them."
