Today in Social

Derrick Harris writes how EMC is wrapping its big data analysis tools in social media to boost enterprise collaboration. The idea is that social media will aid in discovery: employees other than business analysts directly charged with the task will trip over data findings they can use for business decisions. Opening up big data to non-scientists was one of the topics that came up at a recent GigaOM Pro webinar as well. That theme – and deeper dives into social enterprise collaboration – will be all over our Net:Work conference on the future of work today. I’ll be there, so drop by the Pro booth and tell us how we’re doing and help guide future research directions. If you can’t be there, check into our live feeds, and the next best thing is this analysis anthology.
