E2.0 Top 20 #5: Is there a way to connect individuals both inside and outside my company to accelerate products innovation?
Absolutely! Social Networking can strongly support products development and a social portal is a great way to empower knowledge workers to manage the complexity of product design, manufacturing and delivery. A collaborative workspace provides concurrent document editing, micro-blogs, central content repository and unified search across content. Social media doesn't necessarily replace existing communications but can improve cross-organization information management and speed the deployment cycle. Use social networks to explore new ideas. Use social tagging, filtering and recommendations to identify relevant trends and technologies. Improve innovation and responsiveness with direct access to experts. Reduce operational costs and time to market with virtual teams.
