September 22 Event to Highlight How Bridging Silos Can Drive Innovation, Growth and Success

Vancouver, BC, September 16, 2011

Jostle® Corporation, a start-up firm pioneering a new approach to enterprise software, today announced it will co-host an event during Social Media Week Vancouver with SAP, the market leader in enterprise application software and producer of the SAP® StreamWork™ collaborative decision-making solution, and Chess Media Group, a social business and enterprise 2.0 strategic consultancy. The event, titled “Bridging Social Media Silos in the Enterprise,” will be held in the BCTIA office in Vancouver on September 22..

Social Media Week 2011 will take place September 19-23 simultaneously in 12 cities across the globe, including Vancouver, Beirut, Glasgow and Chicago. It started in 2009 in New York with 40 separate sessions attracting over 2,500 professionals and is now a growing force in the social media sphere.

The event being hosted by Chess Media Group, Jostle and SAP will take session participants on a journey to explore the following: how implementing social business tools can lead to organizational challenges, how emerging technologies can help bridge silos formed by new social media tools, and how to make it all work in practice.

“This event provides an exciting opportunity to bring together some of the best social business media minds in Vancouver to share our case studies and discuss emerging trends with attendees,” said Brad Palmer, CEO, Jostle. “Organizational silos help teams focus their work and develop know-how, yet hide expertise and hinder cross-organizational collaboration. Bridging those silos is key to driving innovation and organizational effectiveness.”

“Emergent collaboration within the organization is increasingly becoming a business imperative for staying competitive in a global economy,” said Connie Chan, principal, Chess Media Group. “Bridging silos will enable people to share their knowledge and expertise across the organization. How people work within distributed teams and how these teams work will drive the long-term growth and success of the organization.”

“Often, there’s a focus on creating a new social network within an organization in order to improve communication and bridge silos,” said David Brockington, senior solution manager, SAP Labs. “In reality, many social networks already exist within the organization and it’s more a matter of easily identifying and leveraging those networks – especially where they’re needed most: within the collaboration tool of choice.”
