The input options of the solutions was one of these examples. I mentioned options like sending an e-mail or sms to create status […]

IT Knowledge needed

We are discussing many topics talking about Enterprise 2.0 adoption, but IT was brushed a little bit under the carpet on the actual debates.

Recap of E2.0 practices at CSC

It’s not a pilot anymore. It was too successful to stay in pilot phase. 50% of the employees are joining the (pilot) project after 6 month. CSC started Enterprise 2.0 as a pilot project, but not as a small one like usual. The project was limited by time and not by focus. “A small pilot […]
