The public sector shares many of the same obstacles as the private sector when diving into the world of social collaboration strategy and solutions. The challenges span adoption, customization, governance, expansion, and so on. Much like highly-regulated, private sector industries, the public sector is primarily focused on creating a collaborative environment that is behind a secure, controlled firewall; one that still allows communication and sharing to occur organically. More and more public sector agencies are adopting Microsoft SharePoint and SQL Server to create that secure environment, and using NewsGator Social Sites to turn SharePoint into socially-charged communities of practice.
Join Chris McNulty, GM of SharePoint Business Unit with Quest Software, and Brian Burke, Solutions Engineer with NewsGator, for this informative webinar as they discuss how the public sector can best address the strategy, value, and obstacles of moving into “social” properly. If you have any of these business drivers: developing communities of practice; breaking down information silos across regions, departments, and hierarchies; reducing email communications; creating a more transparent organization; or bridging the Generation X gap – you need to check out this archived webinar!
