  5. 5. BuddyPress: An Enterprise Solution As an enterprise solution, a BuddyPress enabled site becomes more than a social network. It can be become a social CRM, a community of practice, membership site, eLearning suite, and a company intranet with project management capabilities.

  7. 7. BuddyPress: An Enterprise Solution Connect over 5,500 family physicians with an intuitive online collaboration tool to further primary care initiatives in Pennsylvania. Allow the physicians the ability to create interest groups, collaborate on online documents, vote on issues, and participate in live streaming webcasts for education accreditation. Make it private with no public social media ties. Make it work on all devices.

  10. 10. BuddyPress: An Enterprise Solution The PAFP Community launched in September 2013. Its first test run was with a weekly eLearning series called the Regional Lecture Series. 6 lectures from physicians across the state broadcast live every Wednesday for 6 weeks. We saw a 1300% increase in attendance to the online sessions than we had in previous live meetings in the past.
  11. 11. BuddyPress: An Enterprise Solution We now have an active engagement of over 500 members who have adopted the PAFP Community into their workflow, with interest groups that bridge the live meetings and online activity. Chiefly, it allows members to connect with each other and make decisions regarding how to best care for patients.

  13. 13. BuddyPress: An Enterprise Solution Open Source and Enterprise are not mutually exclusive. Both can have profound effects on each other when implemented properly. I highly encourage proposing open source solutions for enterprise use.
