Alan Lepofsky: Social Task Management report

8 October 2012

I've been tracking the appearance of "task" orientated enterprise social software solutions and noticed that Alan Lepofsky at Constellation Research has released a report on Social Task Management ("STM"):

These STM platforms augment standard project management features, such as assignments, due dates and priorities, with modern social networking features enabling people to work together more efficiently. STM platforms are available in a variety of architectures, including stand-alone solutions, integration with enterprise social networks or as native features of enterprise collaboration platforms. Regardless of which style an organization chooses, a Social Task Management solution can improve the way people get their work done by helping employees organize their tasks and collaborate efficiently.

I haven't seen the report itself, but based on my interactions with Alan over the years I think he'll have a credible perspective on this evolving space.
