As yet another yr draws to a close, time to ponder things that went right, things that did not go as planned...What could have been done better and what needs more thoughts..In the next 10 odd days would like to create lists that outline, at least from a technology standpoint, items / trends that were anticipated in the beginning of the yr and were given / not given their dues as well as outline similar steps for the new yr..
I have been following up on the nature, size and the business involved in the Social enterprise business and found some interesting facts...
First off is Forrester’s new estimate of the size of the social business industry, which they’ve put at $6.4 billion by 2016, an order of magnitude larger than the (by comparison) paltry $600 million it was just last year. Although the size of the entire worldwide investment in social business has recently been estimated to be as high at $100 billion, Forrester is specifically tracking the investment in the enabling software itself. This includes enterprise social networks, social collaboration suites, and other social business solutions, and not the entire project investment that organizations make as they roll out social software. This does not seem to be a either lowering or raising of previous projections, such as their 2008 forecast that the industry would be $4.6 billion in size by 2013. For a useful cross check, we can see that ABI Research’s new figures, which were released today, has lower figures yet shows a very similar 57% yearly growth (compared to Forrester 60%.)..
Looks like time to start looking more closely at some of the enterprise platforms that promote this...
As the usage of mobile devices becomes more and more prevalent...companies are facing an unprecendented challenge to manage employee personal devices from a security and privacy standpoint...On one hand, there are the obvious benefits of increased employee productivity due to his device choice as well as reduced costs due to not having to buy these devices, there is the risk of corporate data sensitivity as well as application governance to cover these...Interesting times..
In the latest BUILD conference, MS discussed a little about it...
