Social ROI and Social Value models

Last Friday I had the pleasure to deliver a keynote presentation  to the McKinsey BTO team in Frankfurt. 

The keynote focused on two topics:

1.  How to measure the Return on Investment (RoI) by measuring the re-use of content during  sales and project delivery and correlate it with the CRM Win/Lose Rate and Project Margin.

2. How to build a Social Value system - by evaluating the Social Value of users, content and metadata in social network and communities and create targeted value models to answer the question "What's in it for me" (WIIFM).

Furthermore I could listen to the second keynote given by Felix Haas , CEO of amiando - a leading online event registration company. 

It was fascinating to learn how fast they evolved their business model from a "party organization tool" to a leading social media company.

Oracle Social Network

Yesterday - Larry Ellison announced  Oracle Social Network

“The biggest change over the past few years is social networking,” said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison.  “Today, organizations want to connect their people, their applications, their processes and their customers. Oracle Social Network provides that; all the tools are integrated and employees can work from anywhere in the world with the devices best suited to their job.”

This is exciting news for companies which want to implement
Social Enterprise functionality with seamless integration with  their core business processes like CRM, HCM etc. .

The Oracle Social Network has following features

Here is a short video explaining the Oracle Social Network  concept.

Readers of my blog might remember my presentation(s) on Business Benefits of Enterprise Communities

With the announcement of Oracle Social Network and Oracle's WebCenter product suite,
such business scenarios are now possible with Standard Business and Social Applications deployed on premise .. or in the Cloud.

Goodbye SunSpace - Hello WebCenter

On July 2008 we officially launched SunSpace - Sun Microsystem's internal Enterprise 2.0 Platform for Global Sales and Services (GSS).  After 100 days we had over 20,000 users
and after 6 month the usage of the platform has grown 10x times.

In June 2009 SunSpace won the Atlassian "Not just another wiki"  Award - Best use of Confluence and we  open sourced Community Equity, a social value system for Communities and Social networks,  which we invented as part of the SunSpace project.

In the meantime Sun Microsystems got acquired by Oracle and the SunSpace team evaluated the Oracle technology which eventually would replace SunSpace. 

and the winner is ?   Oracle WebCenter

The User Engagement Platform for Social Business

Oracle WebCenter is the user engagement platform for social business—connecting people and information. It brings together the most complete portfolio of portal, web experience management, content, social, and collaboration technologies into a single integrated product suite, and it provides the foundation for Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Fusion Applications to deliver a next-generation user experience.

We have already started the migration to WebCenter and  will share our best practices and experience on this blog.  Here is a sneak preview on how a SunSpace Community looks like on WebCenter.

In my next post, I will explain how we created a WebCenter space template and how we offer flexible  membership management/enrollment.
