As one of the leading business schools in the country, NYU Stern has a reputation for rigorous academics, strong leadership training, and thought-provoking research.
But with a diverse group of more than 10,000 students, faculty, and staff, the school needed a central, secure intranet to manage knowledge and access to the critical content and applications that drive the school’s academic and research mission. NYU Stern also wanted to enable students to leverage information using social tools across the community.
To build a user-friendly intranet portal that empowers people and the enterprise applications they rely on everyday, NYU Stern chose Socialtext’s enterprise social software platform. NYU Stern will leverage Socialtext’s integration with Ping Identity to create an intranet that surfaces multiple applications in a single Dashboard for each person at NYU Stern.
NYU Stern’s CIO Anand Padmanabhan and Senior Director of IT Van Williams also liked Socialtext for its secure SaaS appliance, which gives customers the benefits of an on-site deployment without having to worry about patching updates (which Socialtext does remotely).
“Socialtext will allow us to get the most from our current business applications by integrating them seamlessly with the flexible, easy-to-use social tools that comprise the Socialtext platform, making it easy to share knowledge,” Anand told me. “In addition, with customized Dashboards, NYU Stern’s faculty and staff can leverage, organize and “see” the information that matters most to them.”
With the recent launch of Socialtext Connect, we’re looking forward to seeing more integrations of NYU Stern’s existing apps into activity streams and Signals. For more information on how you can get more from your enterprise systems with Socialtext Connect, click here.
