FYI ... short notice but still time to register and attend. Timely - we just published a reference architecture template on social network sites so if you are a Burton Group client, check out the document here (note: client access required). I'll cover some of the basics in the report during the webinar today.
IT Best Practices for Enterprise Social Networking – Burton Group Webinar
Free Live Webinar – September 30, 2008 at 2 pm ET
With the popularity of consumer sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, and Bebo, IT professionals are facing an increased demand to review and implement social networking capabilities for their enterprise. There are numerous technical and functional items that need to be taken into consideration when developing an enterprise social network.
Unfortunately, since social networking for the enterprise is relatively new, best practices and feature/function requirements are not clearly established or widely available. Based on his extensive social computing experience, Mike Gotta has established a common set of infrastructure architectural components and capabilities that IT should consider when implementing an enterprise social network site.
Join Burton Group and NewsGator for a live webinar on September 30, 2008 at 2 pm ET that will cover:
- A definition of enterprise social networks
- An overview of the key infrastructure components of social networks
- A demonstration of how to implement enterprise social networks with Microsoft SharePoint
