Social computing behind the firewall

Social computing is all the rage in the world of intranets and portals. The rise of blogs and wikis on the web has prompted several high-profile client organizations to put these and other social tools to use behind the firewall, while many more are wondering whether to jump on the bandwagon. Social computing has quickly evolved from a mysterious toy of the world’s youth to a mainstream productivity platform.

NLC has an established track record for delivering business efficiencies through advanced enterprise web solutions, including collaboration systems.  We realize social computing may seem like a radical shift from the traditional corporate collaboration tools but it is actually a natural evolution of those systems. And while it promises tremendous productivity and efficiency gains, social computing also presents new risks to the enterprise, including concerns about confidentiality, proprietary information, moderation, regulation of competition and personal information.

With our knowledge and experience of both new and old in this paradigm, NLC is uniquely positioned to consult and deliver corporate social computing solutions.
