The characteristics that on one hand enable the tech community to rapidly innovate are also those that make the group especially susceptible to bottlenecks, communication lapses, and an inadequacy of the right talent and information.
It is the pace of technology’s rapid development that prompt teams to adapt quickly and differentiate themselves, necessitating new sources of information and opportunities to collaborate with talent. This reality is heightened by the fact that the proliferation of technology is a global phenomenon. The tech community is not confined to one geographical locus but rather spans across the world, behooving its adoption of tools which allow global teams to stay easily and consistently connected to each other. And because speed is critical to tech team’s success among fierce competition , the sheer volume of information on the web must be easily understood and turned into actionable insight.
Recognizing the impact of these issues on the productivity of the tech community, SAP Startup member Solaborate created a social and collaboration platform specifically for tech professionals.
Despite the best efforts to mine the internet, professionals often end up with an unlimited quantity of information, but not the right answers. By providing a platform that allows professionals to present themselves, their product, and their company through tailored made profiles, blogs, and forum boards these efforts are targeted to core audience members who share similar interests, problems and projects- and likely, critical solutions.
Solaborate’s key features like instant chat and screen sharing make communication between a user and their defined ecosystem effortless, and ensure that core audience members receive relevant updates from others in their network in real-time.
Solaborate’s compatibility with mobile interfaces is welcome news to tech professionals who find themselves on the move on a daily basis. The key value of Solaborate becomes the ability to exchange ideas, socialize, and connect with users who, without a shared platform, would remain disconnected to the resources, talent and information that could be the defining difference in success or failure.
