ESG Announces New Market Coverage-the Social Enterprise

MILFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

Enterprise Strategy Group (News - Alert) (ESG), a leading IT research, analysis, and strategy firm, today announced that it has initiated coverage of the social enterprise market. The segment, headed by ESG Senior Analyst Tom Petrocelli, incorporates six major components: collaboration, social communications, web frameworks, the social portal, socially enabled enterprise applications, and socially enabled customer experience sites.

Social enterprise is reaching critical mass, and ESG research indicates social tools and collaboration solutions are increasingly driving IT spending. Social tools such as instant messaging, chat, group discussion, and micro-messaging are transforming how people work and communicate. This form of collaboration breaks down temporal, geographic, and functional boundaries, reducing the distances that separate people in the modern workplace. As the business cycle turns toward growth, these collaborative environments are essential for driving value in organizations.

Every day, more companies developing new tools are announced, while larger IT vendors have embraced the idea of social tools being critical to busness processes. "We are at an inflection point in the growth curve of the social enterprise," says Steve Duplessie, ESG founder and senior analyst, "where social hooks are starting to make enterprise applications far more usable and valuable to those that run them."
