Constellation Research, Inc., the research and advisory firm focused on disruptive technologies announced the publication of "How to Gain Competitive Edge with Social Adoption”. This latest report authored by Vice President and Principal Analyst, Elizabeth Herrell, identifies why companies need to invest in social communications to drive business agility and productivity.
This report reveals:
- How social business redefines business processes;
- Key benefits for social communications;
- Steps to create a social communications strategy;
- Vendor selection for social communications.
Social communications transform the work environment by promoting collaboration with colleagues, resulting in fresh insight, continuous innovation and product improvement. However, many companies currently support only a few social communications capabilities, which are not integrated into core business processes and limiting its full potential. One obstacle to full adoption is lack of understanding the business relevance for social communications in supporting business operations. This report offers insight into the key benefits of an integrated social platform and offers suggestions for moving forward to create a social business. Constellation Research’s new report also provides insight into vendors offering an integrated platform to support social communications and best practices for implementing social communications.
“Many companies implement social communications as point solutions but fail to adequately understand the many benefits a means to get work done more effectively and quickly. Integrated social applications promote business agility when tied to existing business processes and result in significant savings related to reduced time to market and removing communication bottlenecks." said Herrell about social technology's role in driving business agility.
This latest report fits into Constellation’s business-focused research theme, Future of Work.

FUTURE OF WORK
Collaborative, social, mobile and other disruptive technologies are introducing new models of work that diverge from or run contrary to legacy paradigms. The Future of Work analyzes the technological, demographical and cultural forces challenging the traditional paradigm of work. Constellation has identified a confluence of trends across people, processes and technology that are influencing today's working environment. In fact, where we work, when we work, how we work, what we work on, and why we work have dramatically shifted.
