The most valuable information within any organization often resides within the minds of its knowledge workers. This powerful "intellectual asset" has remained relatively untapped, because companies lack an effective Enterprise 2.0 strategy. There has not been an effective way for organizations to capture this knowledge base, allow it to grow, and share it company-wide-until now.
The vast volume of unstructured content generated by an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce has brought with it some significant challenges for organizations:
- Managing email and information overload
- Identifying and locating internal experts
- Ensuring transparency
- Making Web 2.0 safe for the enterprise
- Supporting the mobile workforce
This is a new era of real-time collaboration, of community-based networks of great minds that meet to share and experience the power of collective knowledge.
