2014 Enterprise Collaboration and Social Software Market Analysis

  • 27-Jan-2014

We have just published our 2014 edition of the Enterprise Collaboration and Social Software Market Analysis. This advisory looks at how the marketplace – both in terms of products and vendors – is evolving.

Overall, this marketplace is exhibiting greater signs of maturity. Gone are the vast promises of enterprise “transformation” and employee “liberation,” in favor of more staid — albeit highly critical — improvements.

We also find that pure-play vendors exhibit viability, but many of them are also shifting or narrowing their focus. As a customer, make sure that you pay close attention to product roadmaps and strategy shifts.

Our customers say...

"Setting aside the hype and buzzwords of social media technology, RSG offers a clear, objective and comprehensive review of software products and vendors with a specific focus on their applicability to the enterprise. Before embarking on a collaboration or social media project, this research should be any company's first investment."
