Breakfast Briefing: IT and Social Business: In the Enterprise and Beyond the Firewall
June 13, 2013 - 7:00-10:00 a.m., Chicago, IL
are increasingly adopting social technologies both within the
enterprise and beyond the firewall. IDC believes that these
technologies offer significant business value if properly
implemented. Enterprise Social Networks provide new opportunities
for collaboration and process improvement. They have also created
new end user expectations. Social technologies are also
transforming the customer experience. However, while CIOs are
asked to meet the changing demands within the enterprise, CMOs are
often moving unilaterally to develop customer facing strategies and
solutions. Join us for this breakfast briefing where Michael Fauscette, Group Vice President, Software Business Solutions, IDC and David McNally, IT Executive Advisory, IDC Insights will be the presenters.
