    Integrate with Key Business Processes

    Integrate collaboration with key business data and processes.

    Information and data from other business systems need to be integrated into the collaboration application. By collecting relevant data and content together for a specific business process, employees have the right context to determine what problem should be solved, what decisions need to be made, and what experts need to be involved. Collaboration doesn't work if there are silos of information, so the application should be a valuable resource with the most up-to-date information.

Communication is vital to any business, but it is only one part of what it means to collaborate. There isn't a company or business that doesn't need its employees to interact with colleagues on a daily basis. These interactions are about getting employees together to share information, solve problems, make informed decisions, and ultimately work together to get their jobs done. It's important for enterprises to invest in technologies and applications that facilitate and provide a means for employees to easily connect and collaborate. Typically, an enterprise social collaboration solution can be used to do this, and when implemented correctly, can drive significant business value.

Enterprise social collaboration solutions are most successful when they contribute to business value and benefits that address company goals. To ensure successful initiatives, the technology needs to be woven into the current processes and systems or fill current gaps so it becomes a natural part of how people get their work done.
