“Open your Business!” Companies, innovation and digital transformation at Social Business Forum 2013
Why do we need to create a Social Enterprise and what is its role in today’s business strategies? What is the added value Digital Transformation, Big Data, Social CRM and Intranet 2.0 can bring to public and private organizations?
To answer these questions, the management consulting firm OpenKnowledge is organizing the new edition of the Social Business Forum, which will take place in Milan, June 12th – 13th 2013, at the Marriott Hotel, viaWashington 66.
The Social Business Forum emphasizes the importance of collaboration, communication and innovation in today’s workplaces: the key to success for the organizations is to improve the internal collaboration, the communication with the market and the ability to innovate.
With six consecutive editions, the Social Business Forum organized by OpenKnowledge has established itself as the leading European event regarding social enterprise, digital marketing and collaborative innovation. Thanks to top manager speeches and international success stories, the attendees will have the opportunity to understand how the new method and approach of the Social Enterprisecould be integrated to business strategies across a variety of business areas.
Focusing on the concept of Open Your Business!, the 2013 edition of the Social Business Forum will explore topics such as the Digital Transformation, proving that today’s organizations need to engage their customers in the sales processes to increase global competitiveness. The Forum will also highlight how the immense amount of data, Big Data, can be used in terms of social analytics to set strategies based on brand reputation and product positioning.
In addition to the innovative customer approach, the speakers of the Social Business Forum will also concentrate on the development of internal communication and collaboration among employees through the corporate intranet, becoming a Social Intranet, involving all company levels in the creation and co-construction of content in light of a more collaborative spirit.
“The mechanisms of collaboration are radically changing, as well as the processes by which companies and organizations create internal and external value. Often business functions responsible for innovation fear the consequences of changing, not realizing that Caos is simplicity that we cannot see yet (1st thesis of the Social Business Manifesto)”, says Rosario Sica, CEO & Co-founder at Openkowledge.
