The State of Enterprise Crowdsourcing

    The State of Enterprise Crowdsourcing-

    Contributors are split almost evenly between women and men overall (52 percent  vs. 48 percent), but it gets interesting to look at the age breakdown. The percent of men peaks early in the 18-21 year old age bracket and declines from there. CrowdFlower thinks this is due to the high percentage of younger males who are members of game-related partner sites and do game-related sentiment analysis work. The percentage of women peaks in middle age – perhaps because they work at home, but they are not sure. CrowdFlower also found that nearly 10 percent of contributors are nearing retirement age, leading them to think completing tasks may be an opportunity for seniors to stay engaged and earn extra income after retirement.

Looking at both the demand side – the companies asking for work, or tasks, to be done – and the supply side – the people in the crowd completing the work, or tasks – CrowdFlower was able to show the complete landscape of enterprise crowdsourcing. The data comes from looking specifically at the types of projects their 50 largest customers are undertaking, and a survey they completed of more than 2,000 crowd “contributors” – those who complete these tasks. Through this research, they found some interesting things.
