nested in a Social Network
Silverpeas proposes a native Enterprise Social Network (ESN) coupled with its applications. This interface automatically supplies each user's "wall", and communities information streams. Together, the highlighted on-line presence, instant messaging, and social network, contribute to improving collaboration, by providing better visibility into each person's work.
The ESN uses the company directory or directories, and the Silverpeas directory.
The on-line presence is indicated and it is possible to enter into "Chat".
The wall and news feed provides visibility into the work-in-progress on each documents.
The social network represents a new entry point to information ("User centric").
Quick authentication via, and direct publishing on : Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter.
Each user can manage his or her digital identity, avatar, relationships and status.
Silverpeas is one of the rare freely available tools that associates a powerfull content management system to an Enterprise Social Nework.
In a "blink of an eye", you can visualize the latests publications of your community on the information wall, and by simple click access them. The wall is automatically feeded by all applications within Silverpeas (Document management, Galleries, etc.). To have such a result on a global social network would demand a lot of work.
You can also update your status, to avoid being interrupted in the middle of a presentation or when your colleagues can find you at your office while you are on the plane ! Mixing contents in a social network increase the visibility of the activity of the community members which brings better collaboration.
