A Forrester Research's new report “Social Enterprise Apps Redefine Collaboration“, forecasts the market for social enterprise applications and related services to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 61 percent, to become a $6.4 billion market in 2016, compared with $600 million last year.
The Report indicates that enterprise social collaboration tools, adopting Facebook or Twitter like capabilities but adjusted for professional needs, will see substantial growth in the coming years. It is said to even surpass the demand for more traditional communications and collaboration products. According to the report, only 12 percent of information workers have access to enterprise social collaboration software, and only 8 percent of them use it at least once a week, although enterprise social collaboration products have been around for about five years.
It further states, that tools like email, IM, VoIP, UC&C, online meetings and videoconferencing have not yet met the expectations for increased employee productivity and will see declining demand by 2014, because, unlike enterprise social software, they don’t help employees discover peers outside of their work groups with expertise they need to tap.
This should overcome, as per analyst Henry Dewing, for a new generation of social enterprise apps to finally “deliver the productivity businesses desire by systematically grouping and rating people, information, and processes required to answer business needs”.
