  • Mobility & Social Strategic Review #RealWorldITAudience: AllDate: 08/12/13Owner: Karuana Gatimu, Director Strategy & AdoptionDiscovery & Collaboration,
  • Add customer perspective…Five major factors influence consumer trends around the worldSheryl Connelly, Manager Global Consumer Trends and Futuring at Ford & TED Speaker categorizes them as economics, environment, social, politics and technology.When casting an eye toward the future it is not enough to look at the forces within your own company that are driving your collaboration needs. It is important to understand those forces in the greater context of our world as a whole. Additionally, as we create experiences going forward we must remember that many of our organizations are global in nature. That means architecting experiences based on a North American understanding of culture, internet connectivity and style is limiting. We must look out to other countries where we can see, often times, the bulk of our new customer base. This must be done while not deprecating the experience of those in our traditional markets. This means that architectural, visual and content experiences must be agile and personalized to meet new market demands.

Four emerging megatrends have begun to dominate and change the way organizations use technology: mobility, Big Data, social enterprise, and cloud. At Microsoft, we believe that because these technology trends are highly interconnected, they will be an impetus for change in the way organizations do business over the coming decade. Unlike other major shifts in technology that typically are defined by one predominant trend (such as the introduction of mainframe computing and, later, client/server computing), organizations must address these megatrends simultaneously.
  • This is the essential questions today when focusing on the evolution of the portal:What experience do you want your users to have, on what device. Focus on scenarios and persona’s to prioritize development and/or migrationRecognize that all the information that exists within a portal experience may not be appropriate for the mobile versionLeverage supporting services like Profile, Taxonomy and search to drive personalized experiences, connecting people to the right information at the right time. ==================How do we listen
  • This slide covers the Why and the What of maturing our enterprise social network
  • Timing: 1 minute Key Points:Social technology is growing at an exponential rate.Today’s workforce and customers have high expectations of social technology. Script:There’s a lot of buzz about social media these days, but there’s nothing new about being social. Social is natural and human. It has always been part of how we work and live together and do business. What is new is the way that technology is enabling us to engage one another socially in new ways and on a scale that’s literally unprecedented in human history.And this effect is accelerating. If you look at how long it took various media to reach 50 million users, you can see a clear trend. Radio, for example, reached 50 million users 38 years after it was introduced. With television, it only took 13 years, and the Internet took 4 years. Now, as the world is more and more connected, the pace is even faster. The iPod had 50 million users after 3 years, and Facebook had 100 million after less than 9 months.Social technology may be relatively new from a business perspective, but it’s already a normal part of day to day life for tens of millions of people. Those people are your employees, your partners, and your customers. Through services like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, they’re accustomed to easily sharing the things they are interested about. They keep up on their friends and neighbors and public figures. They discuss a broad variety of topics. They expect to be able to contribute to the discussion and have their contributions respected.Additional Information:Qualman, Erik. “Social Media Revolution.” May 5, 2010.
  • What is Social? Social De-mystified Key Messages:Being social is human nature - people have always discovered ways to connect with each other, share knowledge, make collective decisions, and collaborate to do big things. This is social. Today, as life becomes busier, more complex, and more global, people are turning to modern social experiences and capabilities to cut through the boundaries of geography, time, and organizational hierarchies and fulfill this basic drive to connect and work together. This pervasive adoption of Social technology is part of a larger transformation driving changes in how we get things done:In the consumer space, social networking is driving changes in customer behavior, leading to the rise of the social customer. The new consumer is ‘always on’ and expects to be engaged in new ways:44 percent of consumers today complain about products and services by social networks, and they are more likely to accept what they hear through social networks over advertising.20 percent of customers who complain by social media expect a response within one hour. This change in consumer behavior is driving a change in the businesses that serve them:65 percent of companies are deploying at least one social software tool today, and the trend is expected to continue as social networking becomes a ubiquitous part of daily work.The social trend is deeply connected with mobility – as workers expect to connect from multiple mobile devices via social and communication tools and remote workers rely on social to stay more deeply connected with their colleagues. By embracing social technologies into the enterprise, CIOs and BDMs alike can have a strategic impact both inside and outside the business.

Changing processes and offerings. Variable results and understanding. The shift begins. Enterprise social champions across the company. Stable, streamlined processes and automated services coincide with value showcases. Employees recognize clear value from using enterprise social. Tools are optimized for easy self-service.
