Event Overview

With the encouragement of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget and the Federal CIO, agencies are challenged to find ways to drive down operating costs, share information and computing resources, and continue to identify methods to support better decision-making and better customer service. One of the options available to support these business objectives is the expanded use of social collaboration tools, including blogs, wikis, microblogs, and more—with an eye toward creating workforces that are engaged, transparent, and nimble.

While this sounds appealing, what does it really take to implement effective, business-driven social collaboration within complex government organizations? Plan to attend this series of briefings that will address how industry and government professionals are reaping the benefits of social business strategies, including how the latest technologies and tools are being used to reduce operating costs, increase employee productivity, and streamline internal and external agency communications. Most importantly, you will learn why enterprises that invest in social business consistently outperform their peers.

This is your opportunity to meet and hear from experienced practitioners who will address:

  • What it means to be a social business—beyond the use of well-known social media platforms
  • Why social business strategies are directly applicable to Federal Government organizations
  • How to evaluate your organization to determine where to begin with social collaboration tools
  • What has worked for other agencies and how you may leverage their experience
  • How cloud computing can be a natural vehicle for enabling social collaboration in your agency
  • Productivity gains and business value you can expect by nurturing networks of people
