Tim O’Reilly has often asked a good question: seeing as my phone and email know who I communicate with, my company directory knows who I work with, and Amazon knows who has written books for my company, why can’t these various things somehow combine to automatically deal with friend requests coming from social networks? This specific problem is just one example of a wider issue. Given that so much diverse and overlapping information about each of us is spread between many applications, why are seemingly simple things based on combinations of information — like automatically reacting to known friend requests — still not possible? Tim summarizes this by asking “ Where is the web 2.0 address book? “ The traditional reaction to Tim’s need would be to begin work on the design of a new application to provide the suggested features.
I have noticed a progressive chain of events occurring in my social networks. The technology is irrelevant, the trust and nature of the connections is paramount, useful and extremely insightful. I have observed in both my personal and professional life I can specifically divide my social network into i) My social groups that provide tangible economic value from specific value chains of socially connected people ii) I can identify a group of people I am connected to that continually create knowledge transfer value between a group of my network connections. iii) I can drill down to “supportive” networked groups I may turn to from both a professional and personal view-point
I’m frequently asked “What’s the top challenge the corporate social strategist is struggling” and over and over, ROI comes up very high. To tackle this challenge head on, Altimeter has conducted a research project to find out how companies are connecting social technologies to the overall buying process as well as analyzing how they increase revenues for brands. In conjunction with our recent conference on Social Commerce, we’ve now published the findings from interviewing top social commerce vendors and brands that are connecting commerce with social media. Our lead researcher analyst on this project is Lora Cecere who stems from Gartner and AMR and stems from Supply Chain Management, her and I will be doing a no-cost webinar to discuss these finding s, I hope you join us.

P&G may be the only company with a holistic social CRM strategy - yet it doesn't call it SCRM. Paul Greenberg explains what can be concluded from this. I recently had the opportunity to speak at the Capgemini EMEA 'Futures Forum' in London to about 100 customers of Capgemini’s. In the course of my discussion on what social CRM is, something occurred to me.
In Community Managers Part 1: Definitions , I shared my observations about the different types of community managers – those primarily focused on executing ongoing practices – but didn’t spend too much time on the Program Roles – those focused primarily on executing proactive programs. (Also, my apologies. My schedule won’t accommodate an in-depth study of community manager backgrounds, which would have been Part 2.) There is a third role which perhaps sits above these, called the Strategist.
Last week, Juniper Networks decided to finally open its purse and snapped-up Trapeze Networks, a company that specializes in the gear used to set up corporate wireless networks, for $152 million in cash . It was recognition on the part of Juniper that the enterprise networks were going through a sea change, thanks in part because of a big upsurge in the number of mobile devices connecting to corporate networks. For Dominic Orr, CEO of Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Aruba Networks, this is nothing new; his company makes wireless networking gear and has been on a tear for past year or so.
Newsroom: Accenture Survey Finds That High Performing IT Organizations Hit the Ground Running Following the Economic DownturnNEW YORK; Nov. 30, 2010 – High performing information technology (IT) departments at large companies have hit the ground running following the recent economic downturn, recalibrating their efforts to drive more business value from IT, and leaving their less adroit counterparts playing catch-up, according to new research from Accenture.

High performers in IT not only manage IT like a business, but run IT for the business and with the business.
