Toronto in July 2012, Kurt DelBene,

Question
Why companies will move
to SharePoint 2013
When more people participate
•
•
•
•
•
Improves collaboration
Improves individual motivation
Speeds up learning process
Improves system/content analytics
Drives brand awareness
This shows that successful platforms need to drive that
first round of comments – engage the most passionate
people out there.
The value of social is its ability
to reach business goals by
• driving engagement
• improving collaboration
• instilling a sense
of community
AOL took a conjoint approach to understand the DNA of comments
within their sites. They looked at:
• fact based comments
• clarity of thought
• original article criticism
• name (full name, nicknames, anonymous)
• icon (author picture, avatar)
• adherence to party lines
• grammar
AOL’s analysis showed what people cared about:
• style -- 7% (not very important)
• individual substance - 14% mildly important
• community involvement -- 19% somewhat important
• personal identity --- 19% somewhat important
• relationship to content - 42% very important
How you move
forward with social
depends on what
you are trying to
achieve
•
Social has become a company strategy
•
Publishing to multiple formats (intranet, extranet,
internet, mobile, tablet) because of an increasingly
mobile workforce, geographically dispersed
•
End user adoption (tighter integration with Office)
and usability improvements
•
Improved search and business intelligence,
whether data is on prem or in the cloud
How to move forward:
•
Understand your organization’s
cultural capacity for social
•
Experiment with the technology,
monitor and measure the results,
focusing on end user adoption
and engagement
•
Closely align your SharePoint
activities with your business objectives
•
Extend features as the business
is ready for them
The future of SharePoint + Social
