  2. 2. Enterprise social networks – dramatic adoption • Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter have 8.7 crore users in India – Will grow to 28 crore in 4 more years • Their adoption has transformed the way people communicate, collaborate and share information • Social networks are dramatically different from email – Real-time – Constant – Recognize context (private, friends, groups, public) – Multimedia-friendly Social networks used by • Deloitte • Microsoft • Ebay • Capgemini • Tyco • Xerox ATOS, a French IT giant, has famously banned internal emails and plans to move completely to social networks. Gartner: “By 2014, social networking services will replace email as the primary vehicle for interpersonal communication for at least 20% of business users
  3. 3. Traditional communication tools cannot keep up with 21st century workplace challenges • An employee works in different contexts – As part of the department (sales, accounts, production…) – As part of the location (Mumbai, Bangalore, HQ…) – As part of ad-hoc projects – As part of internal interest groups – As part of self-created social groups • Large organisations – Difficult to locate right skills • Inter-department collaboration – Extensive cross-team collaboration required – Many simultaneous projects Corporate employees spend 1/4 of their time looking for information, costing as much as 25% of staff costs Also they spend 28% of each day (13 hours a week) reading, writing and filing e- mails. Source: Interactive Data Corporation and McKinsey Quarterly, Nov 12 While email is the dominant tool for communication, it is over/misused. Emai does not recognize context and priority, only incoming time

  5. 5. SONNET – Your private, secure enterprise network Group-based communication • Organize employees into groups • Each group has its own page • Post and comment within group User directory • Single directory of all users in your org • Displays user profile, memberships, activity Understands context and priority • Unlike email, view only one group at a time; focus on work in that context • Unlike email, view all messages in a conversation together (post + comments on that post). Much more efficient consumption. What Sonnet is NOT Is not an intranet • Sonnet is a collaboration tool for group-based work • Therefore, it is optimized for dynamic content for communication • It is not meant for static document or knowledge management Is not an email client • Sonnet keeps track of incoming email and quickly reply/forward • Think of it as the notification panel on your smartphone where you can reply/archive • But it is not a replacement for your existing email solution What Sonnet is
