This IDC Buyer Case Study is designed to capture the business situation and drivers, metrics, implementation and adoption, outcome (anticipated and unexpected), next steps/future plans, lessons learned, and advice for other buyers considering a social software investment. Social software has received increased attention over recent years, but the question of how end users are approaching business requirements, vendor/product selection, and solution rollout to achieve successful usage levels has been a top question among IDC clients.
To help other buyers evaluating social software and vendors developing, marketing, and selling these solutions, IDC is conducting a series of buyer case studies to highlight end-user organizational challenges, the evaluation process, solution attributes, the implementation procedure, and benefits and results achieved from select social software products.
