Why Sandberg's End Of Email Will Come True
Great post about why email is doomed. My favorite points include:
Rise of Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs)
Leading vendors of social networking systems such as IBM and SAP are integrating social into their business application suites supporting an open and reusable flow of intersecting and persistent conversations, which can also form the basis of a powerful knowledge-base. The key to future success is to understand the detailed way people work and how systems support them, and then to ensure that social fits that way they work.
As people collaborate more widely to build on strengths, to solve customer problems, to create innovation, to recruit and retain talent etc etc they will increasingly turn to enterprise social networks. To continue to do so on email is imply inefficient and ineffective, it's that simple.
Great post! Yes email is going away and it may be faster than anyone realizes like almost everything else is happening lately.
