Aragon Research Recognizes Socialtext as an Innovator in Social Software Research Globe Report

Socialtext’s Interactive Video Capabilities and Integration with PeopleFluent’s HCM Solutions Highlighted as Unique Strengths

November 11, 2015, Palo Alto, California

Socialtext, a leading enterprise social collaboration platform provider, today announced it has been recognized as an Innovator in the Aragon Research Social Software report, “The Aragon Research Globe™ for Social Software, 2015: Knowledge at the Core (doc # 2015-38, October 2015).” The research report evaluates twenty two technology and service providers in the Enterprise Social Network (ESN) market who each focus on the core problem of sharing knowledge. Socialtext’s Innovator recognition was provided based on the strength of the company’s integrations, the solution’s customizable widgets, video-sharing capabilities, and the company’s social HCM offering via PeopleFluent.

The Aragon Research Globe is segmented into four sectors, representing high and low on both the strategy and performance dimensions. The report focuses on the evolution of the ESN industry and the industry’s move away from features and functions toward more of a focus on integration and outcomes.

“Socialtext was an early ESN pioneer,” said Jim Lundy, founder and CEO, Aragon Research. “Today they continue to provide the ESN capabilities enterprises need, including support for video content into its platform.”

“As the ESN space continues to evolve, Socialtext is well-positioned to stay at the forefront of this dynamic market,” said Stephen Turner, senior vice president and general manager of Socialtext. “We are proud to be named as a social software Innovator by Aragon Research and look forward to bringing exciting new social collaboration solutions and capabilities to market in 2016.”
