Social business trends: a case study

It's no surprise organizations large and small are adopting online communities to bolster their business. In fact, 41% of the Tech Trends respondents plan to have some kind of "external deployment" in the next 24 months. So when I was told a IBM Business Partner is starting its social business community on developerWorks, I thought, "what a perfect opportunity to experience this trend first hand." I jumped at the opportunity to get involved.
SIA Access' Business Cloud for Mobile community is a fine example of social business adoption at work. In the Tech Trends Report, filesharing (61%) and blogs (49%) are ranked as the top community capabilities. SIA's community is no exception, leveraging a number of insightful and compelling blog entries that demonstrate SIA's cloud and mobile expertise. In fact, check out SIA Access' perspective on the 2011 Tech Trends Report, and its own deep dive analysis (PDF download) from using the SPSS dataset.
