Users can now access enterprise activity streams on the desktop alongside Facebook, Google Apps and Twitter
Ektron, a Web content management, social and marketing optimisation software provider, has unveiled an eIntranet plug-in built with Seesmic Desktop 2 (SD2) that enables users to access enterprise activity streams on the desktop alongside Facebook, Google apps, Twitter and other social network streams.
The combination of Ektron’s eIntranet with SD2 is intended to reduce the difference between departments and geographic locations and promote effective knowledge sharing and collaboration in the enterprise.
Instead of having to search for information, the information finds users via real-time, filterable activity stream of information, the company said.
The eIntranet is built on both social and .NET best practices and scales to the size and needs of every company, and it is easy to deploy, use and extend on premise, hosted or in the cloud.
Ektron founder and CEO Bill Rogers said the combination of Ektron’s social business and collaboration application, eIntranet, with Seesmic underscores the business need for forward looking enterprise strategies that manage everything influencing both external and internal Web use.
