FINALLY, Microsoft Embraces Social -- And It's Going to be Big - Forbes

FINALLY, Microsoft Embraces Social -- And It's Going to be Big - Forbes | Microsoft. Almost everything you need for BUSS4 | Scoop.it

Seeing Microsoft delay efforts to formulate a social strategy, one wonders whether they were going to take a pass on the social enterprise.

 

“You can’t address the social business challenges organizations face today without a bold vision. SharePoint Community influencer, and Director of Fpweb.net’s Mark Miller makes the point best, 'It’s good to see Microsoft finally acknowledge social in the enterprise, but in the past and going forward, I actually believe partners and 3rd party Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) will fulfill that vision.'

 

I’ve long argued that Microsoft needs to lead with a dramatic vision and then get third parties to build applications that support it; and not the other way around. What they desperately need is to offer CIO’s a roadmap to navigate the new, more social enterprise. A comprehensive, lucid plan that clearly illustrates how Microsoft and its partners will help power the next generation enterprise.
