Telligent's Latest Innovation Unites the Social Enterprise

Company’s Telligent Enterprise 3.0 suite marries business with IT, designers with developers, and enterprise investments with social technology.

Dallas, TX, June 30, 2011 --( Telligent, a leader in social community software, today announced what its founder and CTO Rob Howard defines as the "social layer" for uniting today’s enterprise.

“Our vision has consistently been a social layer that unites business users and IT, providing IT with the platform they need and business users with the agility they demand. The true ROI of social is increasing the value of all the enterprise investments that the business already owns by connecting to this social layer,” explains Howard.

“With the launch of our new Telligent Enterprise 3.0 suite and Telligent Evolution 6.0 platform, we have gone further than any other vendor to address this head on. Telligent unites business units, IT and employees with an enterprise-grade product that layers social tools across the organization,” explains Howard.

“It’s clear that employees want functional, easy-to-use social applications at work for collaboration, personalization and the sharing of targeted information,” explains Rob Howard. “What’s been missing until now is enterprise-grade technology that integrates social tools into the workplace. It’s not about bypassing existing investments, such as Microsoft SharePoint. It’s about ensuring that businesses can extract the maximum amount of value from the tools they already have,” adds Howard.

The Telligent Enterprise 3.0 suite offers businesses:

- World-class social applications integrated together as a suite.
- Advanced user experience to empower the developer and the designer through an innovative new Widget Studio and Theme Studio.
- Enhancements to email integration with support for summarized digests.
- Continued enhancements of native mobile capabilities.
- The industry's only "social platform," providing a robust set of APIs that, once published, do not change.
- Enterprise integration with Microsoft technologies common to the enterprise such as Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Lync as well as others.

“Telligent Enterprise is the singular choice for businesses that need to infuse social into their organizations.” Howard continues, “Telligent’s commitment to helping businesses embrace rather than replace existing technology is reinforced with built-in integration with Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Active Directory.

“This is an innovative solution to the segmented ways organizations have historically interacted with their employees, customers and partners. We have solved the problem by providing a single platform that can act as the social glue necessary to bind the various islands of information around which enterprises have invested,” says Howard.
