8,010 views

Published on

To demonstrate how organizations are leveraging social technologies and practices, Oracle, Leader Networks, and Social Media Today surveyed more than 900 marketing and technology executives from organizations around the world. The results showed that transitioning to a socially-enabled enterprise is a key priority for business executives, and also highlighted the challenges organizations need to overcome to realize the potential of social technologies.

  • HI Vanessa:
    I noticed some clear indices of outcomes that you identified.Personally, as a novice to this area, I fall back on my penchant for clear definitions and measures of success . I look for the best outcome measures that tell the story of what is being accomplished and does so with the highest degree of credibility, relevance, validity and accuracy. More examples for companies that are small as well a well as the large ones would be of interest to me. As usual your work is very impressive and leads the way.
    Marty Pollack, Consulting Psychologist

  3. 3. Focus of the study: The purpose of the Socially Enabled Enterprise Study is to explore the changing role of the IT and Marketing due to the impact of social business and to explore the impact social platform adoption is having on enterprise’s operations and customer-facing initiatives now and in the future. Oracle partnered with Social Media Today and Leader Networks to survey more than 900 marketing and technology executives from organizations around the world. Sample composition: This survey, which was conducted in the spring of 2013,gathered insights from 20+ industries and 52 countries. Respondents were screened to ensure that they held a role in either Marketing or IT, were engaged by an organization employing 100 employees or more, and worked for an organization which currently uses social platforms. 925 respondents met these criteria and were thus retained for analysis: 662 of those reported holding a Marketing position, while 263 were in IT/Technology. 3
