Simternet offers an enterprise blog solution for companies which want their employees to share their personal knowledge, interests or experiences company-wide. An enterprise blog provides a huge central knowledge base for companies and interaction between the employees to share their knowledge or ideas with each other to help increasing the productivity.
Simternet's enterprise blog solution provisions a blog site to each user. Users can write their own posts with a rich content editor, add images, videos, links etc... Blog posts can be tagged with relevant keywords for other users to easily find the post when they are searching about a subject. Blog posts can be rated and commented. A tag cloud helps to filter posts by a specific keyword.
Group blogs are also provided with Simternet's solution. An administrator can create a group blog site about an interest and users can join this club by administrator’s approval to share what they have about it. These groups help to increase the sociability between employees. Administrators can also create a blog site for a specific topic. Each employee who has something to share about the topic can post a blog about that topic.
By using the powerful search feature of Microsoft Sharepoint, users can easily find posts which they are interested. Ratings and tags will help search result refinement.
The blog posts which are highly rated, mostly commented or read are reported both generally or between a date range. With an administration dashboard, all the reports can be monitored and all the blogs can be managed.
Simternet's enterprise blog solution is built on Microsoft Sharepoint Server 2010.
Capabilities of the SharePoint 2010 Communities Platform
SharePoint 2010 offers a wide range of Collaboration and Social Computing tools that allow people to work together the way they want – whether they’re more comfortable doing asynchronous collaboration through team sites and workspaces, or broadcasting their status updates to their colleague network. This diversity of tool sets also allow people to collaborate anytime, anywhere regardless of whether they are connected to a corporate network, or working from their PC, phone or browser.
SharePoint 2010 Communities Platform allows people to collaboratively:
- Create content and rich media, as well as edit/contribute to other people’s content through rating or commenting
- Share ideas, content, networks and resources with their colleagues and others in the organization
- Network with others who may share similar interests through dynamic status updates and activity feeds
- Find the right people and information faster allowing them to make better decisions and become more efficient and productive
The SharePoint 2010 Communities solutions help to make a dispersed, chaotic, fragmented organization into a much smaller-seeming, cohesive community of people who better understand how they fit into the overall enterprise ecosystem.
