Defining social business 3 MIT Sloan Management defines “social business” broadly to include activities that use social media, social software and technology-based social networks to enable connections between people, information and assets. These activities could be internally focused in the enterprise or externally focused toward customers, suppliers and partners. Examples: • Social media: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter • Social software: Instant messaging, wikis, blogs, enterprise collaboration platforms • Technology-based social networks: Employee and community forums Source: MIT Sloan Management Review Research Report 2014 Definition HorizonWatch Trend Report: Social Business and Workforce Management (External Version)10Apr2016

Social Business trends to watch in 2016 1. Continued demand for collaborative solutions. The need for connection and collaboration across mobile devices, desktops and other devices continues to drive social business technology adoption, despite customer challenges regarding culture change. 2. Social analytics is a growth area. As the market matures, the rise of the data economy will lead the next opportunity for vendors, including the incorporation of analytics tools throughout internal and external business processes, specifically around productivity measurement. 3. Competitive landscape is crowded. The social ecosystem is crowded with startups offering point products for social collaboration disrupting long-entrenched enterprise vendors. These startups are benefitting from fewer market barriers to entry due to increased adoption of cloud computing in the SME and enterprise markets, especially with noncritical workloads. 4. Developers demand innovative platforms and tools. Broad availability of APIs and cloud computing reduces market barriers and enables companies to get to scale. The missing piece is differentiation based on innovation, creating an opportunity for platform specialists to attract and retain developers to their intellectual property (IP). 4 Source: MD&I HorizonWatch , TBR Key Insights HorizonWatch Trend Report: Social Business and Workforce Management (External Version)10Apr2016 PC Mag: 5 Collaboration Trends to Expect in 2016 7Summits: Collaboration Trends and Strategy Approaches for 2016 “Social media certainly isn't a fail-proof solution to all of today's corporate communication and collaboration problems, but strategic CIOs and their teams can use social platforms to improve business processes, boost productivity and engage employees.” CIO.com: CIOs share best practices for social media and collaboration

Social Business – Drivers, challenges and implications 5 Drivers  New collaboration technologies, apps, and platforms  Increased demand for collaboration apps embedded across software platforms and websites  Global workforce and supply chain ecosystems  Increased evidence that social helps to build better relationships between customers, partners and employees Inhibitors/Challenges  Cultural issues continue to impede adoption  Collaboration requires changes to business processes  Managing risk and implementing security  Tracking metrics related to ROI of collaboration apps  Social analytics is still emerging as a data science Implications  Executives need to lead the cultural change  80% of success of social business efforts will come from proper implementation strategy, planning, roles, and processes — only 20% will come from the technology platform  Centralized implementation needed with company-wide social tools, standards, policies and practices  New Career Paths and Education needed  Once implemented, Social Business strategies can improve the effectiveness of employees and unlock talent and skills that otherwise might have gone unnoticed Key Insights HorizonWatch Trend Report: Social Business and Workforce Management (External Version)10Apr2016 CIO.com: 16 employee engagement trends that will shake up IT in 2016 “While the benefits of enterprise collaboration are clear, achieving it is more complex than simply rolling out a set of technologies. It requires changes in business processes, corporate culture, and the structure of the technology management organization.” Forrester: The Enterprise Collaboration Playbook For 2016 “The ability to link customer experience, workforce, commerce, business networks, and innovation together in order to deliver a holistic view of digital and social transformation is at the epicenter of where businesses will find differentiation.” Vanessa Thompson, research vice president, Communities and Collaboration, IDC IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Social Business 2016 Predictions

Watch for increased interest in solutions that automate systems to manage personnel and their on the job productivity.  Team Collaboration: Team demand solutions that integrate mobile collaboration. Expect continued growth in team tools such as project management, virtual meetings and document sharing to accommodate the mobile workforce and increase engagement among business units.  Messaging: Rise of messaging solutions embedded with video functions.

CEO commitment to transformation will drive the business process change enabled by social business tech and mobile access  Demand increases for meaningful interaction and decision-making. The need for connection and collaboration across mobile devices, desktops and other devices continues to drive social business technology adoption.  Success is limited by internal process and overall cultural change. All organizations are resistant to change, particularly enterprise businesses that must grapple with legacy systems and take a department-by- department approach to next-generation technology adoption, creating interdepartmental shadow IT.  Analytics enhance social business processes. The data economy is transforming how businesses carry out internal processes, making employee productivity a measurable and manageable asset with automated systems.  Mobile and social combined creates an “always on” work culture. The growth of mobile devices in the workplace is further transforming internal processes as many employees work outside the office at least part time but still want to collaborate regardless of their location. 7 Source: MD&I HorizonWatch , TBR Market Trends HorizonWatch Trend Report: Social Business and Workforce Management (External Version)10Apr2016 Forbes: The 12 Habits Of Highly Collaborative Organizations “A properly executed enterprise collaboration strategy empowers employees and connects the customer experience ecosystem in new ways to create business value.” Forrester: The Enterprise Collaboration Playbook For 2016 “The key to harnessing the productivity benefits of a mobile-enabled workforce is to make sure that mobile devices can access the content they are best suited to consume and that the new functionality available in these devices is properly used in collaboration applications.” ComputerWeekly: Gartner: Benefits of mobile collaboration

Challenge: Executive commitment and integration of multiple offerings  Executive commitment to process change management. Despite the inherent value of social functions in internal business operations, resistance to organizational change impedes adoption and requires management to unitedly embrace new tools that improve tracking of personnel.  Integration of multiple offerings and legacy systems. Businesses adopting multiple platforms must ensure technology interoperability and have a centralized platform to unlock the full potential of social business solutions equipped with analytic functions.  Security challenges and regulatory compliance issues. Mobile collaboration app usage accelerates. Businesses face security challenges as employees access corporate data from various devices on external networks.  Breaking through file type and size barriers. Increased adoption of cloud-based platforms for project collaboration elevates the difficulties enterprises face in managing and accessing numerous file types, as well as uploading large project files on collaborative systems such as Box and Dropbox. 9 “Change management for social business requires passion matched with sustained effort to work through the many details, both technical and organizational.” Dion Hinchcliffe, ZDNet Contributor Source: MD&I HorizonWatch , TBR Adoption Challenges HorizonWatch Trend Report: Social Business and Workforce Management (External Version)10Apr2016 IBM: The Top 5 Collaboration Challenges “Many of today's collaboration technology initiatives fall well short of their transformational potential.” Forrester: The Enterprise Collaboration Playbook For 2016
