Social tools or tools that are social?

Harold Jarche

Is there a need for a wide variety of enterprise social tools? Adding social (collaboration & cooperation) capabilities to existing productivity tools is a better approach than using a dedicated social platform, Valyanov suggests. If so, then Microsoft’s strategy with Office365, focused on tools first and collaboration second, may be on the right track. Microsoft is also using these tools internally, as described by a senior IT staff member.
