Google Wants To Own Enterprise, But It’ll Do It Google Style – Livefyre Comment On PandoDaily

@fnelson  - Google market is currently limited to SMBs. Very few enterprises have risk-appetite to even try a consumer vendor. – JASMEET SAWHNEY

For Google the outlook is bright: It will succeed in enterprise, just not quite yet. Despite numerous customer wins and a surge of momentum in cloud-based productivity apps, the company, for now, is far from emerging victorious, partly because of its methodical approach to the enterprise, and partly because of enterprises’ cautious approach to Google — two awkward dance partners, eyeing each other from across the room.

Google is competing for enterprise relevance in several key categories: Office productivity applications, including e-mail, personal cloud, corporate back-end cloud services, and social. Google is just starting out with Google Compute Engine, its cloud infrastructure service. Google Drive, the company’s personal cloud offering, and Google Plus, its social media product, are both still pining for consumer attention, much less enterprise relevance. But even here, there’s promise; more on these in a future post.

Does Every Company Need An Enterprise Social Network? – Posted On Quora

Enterprise Social Network

One aspect that has changed over the years is how information is consumed and shared. No company can live without it. Period. Whether it is industry information, competitor information, corporate news, employees’ personal knowledge and interests, etc. This is absolutely valuable to companies of all sizes – small or large. As the Intranets have failed, Enterprise Social Networks have become the only medium for employees to discover and share information. So, if it is only about information – yes, ESNs are effective and every company can find some value in it based on how many employees participate.

But, this does not mean every company needs tons of other features offered by Enterprise Social Networks. Most companies using Yammer, Jive and other products do not make good use of other features. It is still to be seen how much impact these ESNs bring to day-to-day employee workflows, which is a key aspect of this question.
