Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 02, 2011
Telligent, a leading provider of social community software for the enterprise, today announced that it is positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant in the ‘Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace’ (1) report.
Gartner includes vendors in the Visionaries quadrant based upon completeness of vision and ability to execute.
“Telligent is honored to be acknowledged by Gartner in this report,” said Wendy Gibson, CMO of Telligent. “Our customers are using online communities to connect employees and enable quicker sales cycles, improve internal collaboration and encourage innovative new products. We see this report as a testament to our ability to enable great brands to deliver on key business objectives through a social employee community.”
Gartner notes that, “[e]nterprises continue to invest because they need to support community hubs, idea sharing, expertise location, project teams, social intranets, collaborative document authoring and better communication.” (1)
Earlier this summer, Telligent announced the Telligent Enterprise 3.0 suite for social software in the workplace. Telligent Enterprise is the only social enterprise suite built on a true social platform, making it the singular choice for businesses that need to infuse social across their organizations. This recent release unites the enterprise with a social layer that integrates, not replaces, an organization’s IT investments.
“Social software in the workplace isn’t just about bringing Facebook-like features into the enterprise. Rather, it is a deep understanding of how work patterns are changing and a reflection of how today’s decisions are made: building on the insight of peers,” said Telligent Founder and CTO Rob Howard. “Our vision within the enterprise is to enable organizations to get maximum value from key enterprise technologies, such as Microsoft SharePoint, through an integrated social layer.”
Telligent is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant in three recent Magic Quadrants from Gartner related to community software, including the ‘Magic Quadrant for Externally Facing Social Software’ (2) and ‘Magic Quadrant for Social CRM’ (3).
