"Social-Business-Design" - or how to make enterprise 2.0 projects successful

Social Business Design

Thinking a lot about new concepts and metrics that could help to plan, implement and run Enterprise 2.0 projects successfully, we recently came across the term "Social Business Design". The term originated from US consulting firm dachis group. It would be too easy to judge it as just another hype term. Indeed, we do believe that it is a good way to describe the urgent need to bring together business and IT-thinking.

Our project experiences with leading companies all over Europe have shown that still a majority of business leaders have no real clue how the new web technologies are reshaping their business and the way their organizations communicate within their various ecosystems (customers, employees, partners, shareholders).

So the "Social Business Design" approach could be helpful to think about enterprise 2.0 in a more holistic and strategic way. As the dachis group team phrases it "The social business design framework captures ecosystem (community), hivemind (culture), dynamic signal (collaboration), and metafilter (content)."

From our perspective enterprise 2.0 needs some additional back-up from strategic planning and HR. Only when new enterprise 2.0 planning metrics (e.g. shareability, activity index, search flow) are integrated into the companies goal sheets and HR plans, new initiatives will be successful. At Qitera we love the bottom-up initiatives that drive most initial activities. But to profit from productivity gains and collective intelligence on a broader scale the entire organization has to jump on the train.

Currently we are forming a working group together with some of our clients aiming to distill some real planning and ROI-metrics that could help to plan and measure enterprise 2.0 success. Please contact Carlo Velten if you are interested to join our working group.

Web sites, blogs, social networks, market places and new communication tools such as Twitter.

CEO Joerg to speak at EntrepreneursDay 2009

Qitera CEO Joerg Lamprecht will introduce our new SaaS-based search solution at well-known entrepreneurship event EntrepreneursDay2009 this morning. We are excited about feedback from the wider tech community after releasing our new service just 2 days ago. First customer feedback is great and we hope get in touch with more CIOs, marketing executives and knowledge managers who want to support their teams with a simple and ready-to-go search solution.

Qitera Enterprise™ - Search as a Service

By relasing the enterprise version of our search and sharing platform, Qitera introduces a new concept to traditional enterprise search - SaaS - Search as a Service. Qitera Enterprise™ offers a package of powerful but intuitive search and collaboration functionalities delivered over the web - as a service.

This is unique as enterprise search technologies are traditionally associated with high-volume licensing fees and installation costs. Projects tend to be hardware- and knowledge-intensive. Multiple servers need to be configured and maintained to run the search application and the corresponding back-end technologies (crawler, indexing, databases, rules engine ...).

At Qitera we do believe that it's time for a change. Companies should care about the effectiveness of their internal search processes and the knowledge productivity of their employees – and NOT about back-end technologies. At Qitera we have build a search technology platform that offers substantial benefits in terms of flexibility, scalability and TCO.

Benefits of Search as a Service

* No hardware investments or license fees
* No installation costs
* Get your team ready within 30 minutes
* Automated releases and updates
* Back-up and recovery included
* Scalability from 5-5,000 users
* Mobile access to company knowledge (executives, sales)
* Standardized API to integrate corporate data sources

To get more information and a free trial for Qitera's search as a service please register here.

smarter every day

Dear Customers,

I am happy to announce our new Enterprise Intelligence Plattform. For the first time you can now get all your relevant Web content, Office Content, Collaboration and Fresh Qitera Intelligence in one place.

Qitera was founded with the mission to build a new generation of search solutions that deliver meaningful results in a more intuitive way. As the amount of data is exploding, finding relevant information to make smart decisions has become a challenge in most organizations. We built a search technology platform that reflects the fundamental paradigm shifts taking place today.

Social Search – As the web has become the prime source of information, making sense of the users search and sharing activities is a key step to better search results based on the collective wisdom of the organization. That is how search gets social.

Simple Search – As users are getting accustomed to Google, enterprise search products have to become more user-friendly and have to deliver relevant results in a much more intuitive way.

Semantic Search – As the amount of unstructured content is exploding, semantic web technologies provide the chance to mark up and structure information in a more meaningful and graph-based way.

Search as a Service – As traditional enterprise search systems are associated with high-volume licensing fees and installation costs, web-based search services offer significant customer benefits in terms of flexibility, scalability and TCO.

Social Search in Google

One of the most annoying things in "Search" is the neverending loop of searching things we already found previously. We search again and again and again for similar things - and the worst: our friends and coworkers most probably also search for similar things.

In capturing whole pages from the web, Qitera already did the first important step: Building your personal search index. No Tags anymore. No lost content no vanished articles. All stored for eternity in your personal index. Open it to friends or co-workers and benefit from what they know and ready is your social search index.

With Qitera Assist we do another important step: Integrating your personal Index into Google, MSN and Yahoo!. You now FIRST get pages from YOUR pages, things you already found and THAN from the web.

How does it work?
The Qitera plug-in captures a query in Google or Yahoo! and sends the search term to Qitera. We than take your search results and display them right before the "official" Google results.

Duplicates and Multiples


When creating your personal search index and saving pages it can happen that you save a page twice. So we received a lot of feedback and that feature. It's now fixed in the current release, just watch out for that hint beneath your findings:

But: That hint also appears when your friends previously saved the same pages and invited you. So for the system it's the same if it is "your" page or you simply have access rights to it and it "belongs" to one of your friends.

Multiple identities:

Another extremely nice feature is the handling of multiple email accounts in your "Settings" in the "E-mail Settings" section. You now have the option to register as many addresses as you like. Work, private, anonymous...

Of cause you can log-in to Qitera with any of those emails .... your password stays the same. The content also. Try it out and send your neighbor a smile if you like it! :-)
