We're seeing growing adoption of cloud-based platforms for communities and social intranets, but can we call it a trend? Are we seeing companies switching from on-premise and hosted installations to Software as a Service (SaaS).
Last week Facebook launched their much anticipated new enterprise social network offering, Workplace, formerly known as Facebook at Work. The service is designed to transform business communications by improving internal communication and collaboration. Workplace is a separate product from personal Facebook. Users have unique accounts within Workplace where they can create and join groups to collaborate virtually with their coworkers, although the option to link accounts is available in a user's settings.
During the week of May 20th, Social Edge attended and sponsored the Verint Engage19 Conference in Orlando, Florida. Verint owns the Telligent community software platform. Telligent is a community platform that Social Edge began to partner with in 2017 as a solution for our community customers. Check out Andrew Kratz's recap of the conference here.
