    CeBIT (March 5-9), one of the biggest digital and telecommunication solution exhibitions in the world, brings together leading communication technology professionals and users at an international event that discusses the latest trends and innovations.

    Olivier Jacob, our VP of Business Development & Alliance, gave a keynote speech on the Enterprise 2.0 and Enterprise Social Networks and answered important questions posed by companies nowadays:

    • What is the future vision for the infrastructure of the Social Enterprise?
    • Is the “Social Network” concept a leading system with a social layer?
    • How are the different standards (like Opensocial) perceived by social software manufacturers?

    During the 5-day event we were able to share business transformation ideas associated with Social Business , explain our vision of collaboration, innovation, and Enterprise Social Networks , as well as illustrate some examples of how key accounts with our technology work in order to make their organizations social enterprises, demonstrate different installation solutions , and various forms of use, customization and mobile integration.

    Zyncro at Enterprise 2.0 Summit in Paris

    Under the theme “Enabling the Enterprise Social Media (R)Evolution”, Enterprise 2.0 Summit, world leader on the Enterprise 2.0 concept, landed in Paris during March 20-21 to analyze real corporate transformation processes generated by the adoption of social strategy and technology in organizations.

    At Zyncro, we took advantage of our presence at this edition of Enterprise 2.0 Summit to position our solution as one of the best options for companies seeking to bring about a ‘Corporate Social Revolution’ in their companies and become Enterprises 2.0.

    In our keynote together with Yammer at the close of the first day, we highlighted some of the key trends in Enterprise Social Networks and Business Collaboration resulting from our knowledge and our customers’ experience in adopting and implementing an Enterprise Social Network .

    Zyncro hence reinforces its international consolidation strategy started in 2011 and continues its expansion as one of the leading Enterprise and Private Social Network manufacturers.

    As a result of our experience and the path followed over these last two years, Zyncro has prepared its own implementation methodology for Enterprise Social Networks, the ‘Zyncro method, with which it seeks to help organizations in adapting to new business collaboration and management tools . Its first step in this process has been to publish the whitepaper ‘How to convince your directors to implement an Enterprise Social Network’ Still haven’t downloaded it? ;-).

    Communication 2.0 and organizations 2.0: designed to understand each other 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    A few weeks ago Alejandro Formanchuck was visiting Barcelona and he took the occasion to participate in an event organized by Zyncro: #Ysehizolaluz, which I was able to attend and during which he enthralled us with a conference about internal communication 2.0. Alejandro made us ponder a number of questions such as “Are 2.0 tools revolutionary?”, “Who uses these tools?”

    To be honest, after learning that even Queen Elizabeth II and the Vatican have been convinced, it should come as no surprise that many Spanish companies are currently deciding to join the 2.0 revolution.

     

    This table shows some of the differences in some areas between enterprises 1.0, those which have yet to adopt internal and external 2.0 tools, and the so-called enterprises 2.0. It is clear that the gap between 1.0 and 2.0 is not only semantic, but is also about a natural and sophisticated evolution in many areas and fields of the company, initially by adopting more universal and humanist values, and within a framework for collaboration.

    According to Alejandro, to create a culture 2.0 the following is necessary:
    • Access to and availability of information
    Minimizing the asymmetry between senders and recipients
    • Boosting the prosumer logic
    • Extending participation
    • A genuine interest in people generating the business and sharing contents
    • Interaction in decentralized network formats
    • Collective construction, collaboration and meritocracy
    • Willingness to listen and make use of this information
    Respect for people and giving up ego
    Minimizing control

    Every day more studies show that adopting and using 2.0 tools contributes positively to better company results. In this sense, in 2011 McKinsey statistically proved that businesses which internally and externally use technologies 2.0 to a larger extent, are more profitable. In the same study, 27% of companies declared to have better margins and market shares than their competitors. The conclusions state that “a connected company has 50% more of a chance of belonging to this group“. The latest study by McKinsey from November, about Strategy, shows how “social intelligence” guides decisions and how “internal and external social networks” are changing the classic decision-making process. The influence is clear, if from a common sense point of view we analyze the enormous amount of information that social networks provide, businesses need systems to be able to process the subject in an intelligent and suitable way. This leads to the conclusion that in the development of social CRMs there is a need to include all this “big data”, one of the greatest challenges facing companies over the next few years.

    In the most recent study by IBM on companies that have adopted a social business model, surprising data has been revealed such as:

    • 9 out of 10 businesses report benefits thanks to the adoption of a social business model
    • 57% of companies obtain better results than their competitors which do not have a social model
    Growth in expenditure on social software by companies is forecast at 61%, up to 2016, reaching a business figure of 6,400 million dollars.

    I would like to put a few questions to directors of Spanish companies with regard to this matter: Do you need more data? Do you need more time? What are you waiting for to get prepared? What are you waiting for to drive the strategic change and adopt your company’s social model? Do you want to start with a change in the company’s internal communication? Try out the Zyncro Enterprise Social Network.

    The API Hour: the potential of the Zyncro API 

    Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Not all businesses enable the development of an API, however, there are APIs that have led to the development of a business model. With this in mind, The API Hour will bring together professionals who work with APIs to explore potential with regard to use, the opportunities of collaboration with other firms and the creation of new features.

    At this event, our CEO Lluis Font, who has been invited to speak, will talk about the Zyncro API, its integration in mobile environments, the interaction ability with other business solutions and the applications already developed – the ZyncroApps.

    What is the API Hour?

    The API Hour was created with the objective of becoming the specific forum for professionals in this sector to disseminate the characteristics, uses and future of APIs, in fact it’s the first API forum in Spanish. The aim is to share experiences that are being developed in Spain and abroad from different perspectives.

    APIs are revolutionizing the new technologies sector. Many of the new products that technology companies are launching are to do with the search of collaboration with developers from other companies for integration with their products. To talk about matters relating to APIs, innovation teams from large companies as well as representatives of small internet-related companies and some public institutions have been invited to the event.
