Enterprise Crowdsourcing: 62% More Effective?

June 28, 2013 Appirio

In the new cloud-enabled world, the entire technology stack has been democratized. However access to expert technical talent continues to be a major hurdle for organizations of all sizes.

Saugatuck Technology, an analyst firm focusing on how emerging technologies drive real change in business, addresses this disconnect in their recently published whitepaper on how crowdsourcing is making an impact on enterprise IT and product R&D.

Definite Crowdsourcing Whitepaper

If you frequent this blog, you’ll note that one of the primary themes is the convergence of technology and the individuals driving success through it. Scanning the last few posts alone regarding cloud powered HR, cloud powered sales, and cloud powered marketing – it’s clear that this is a driving theme for what we do.

And yet, while cloud technology has enabled technology innovation at scale, and community initiatives like open-source have created the world’s most used database and OS, the enterprise still operates in the dark ages with regards to scaling external, community-driven innovation.

Tapping into the model, data, and customer testimonials of CloudSpokes’ enterprise community software development platform, Saugatuck’s whitepaper details:

  • How App Dev and IT leaders can take advantage of a community development model to augment in-house and offshore teams
  • What enterprise industry peers are doing with community development – and first-hand testimonials about their results
  • What the advantages of a community development model are to an enterprise, including direct access to a worldwide community of technical talent via a model that’s 62% more effective than traditional methods
