Telligent Founder & CTO Named a Leading, Influential SharePoint Thought Leader

(DALLAS, TX) Oct. 27, 2011 — Telligent, a leader in social community software for the enterprise, announced today that it will be exhibiting at the upcoming KMWorld 2011 Conference in Washington DC. Telligent will showcase its latest Telligent Enterprise 3.0 suite including how it integrates with Microsoft SharePoint to provide a unified social platform for employee collaboration. KMWorld recently recognized Telligent Enterprise by naming it as a Trend-Setting Product of 2011.

Three other conferences will be co-located and happening concurrently with KMWorld. Among these is SharePoint Symposium, an intensive, two-day conference designed to enable attendees to determine how, when and why to use SharePoint. Attendees of the SharePoint Symposium will have access to Telligent’s booth, where they can learn more about how to combine the best people-centric social community software from Telligent with the powerful document-centric collaboration from SharePoint.

“We design our software to fit seamlessly within our customers’ and prospective customers’ existing technology infrastructures,” explains Rob Howard, Telligent Founder & CTO. “With Microsoft’s more than 100 million SharePoint licenses sold worldwide, providing integration with SharePoint is a major focal point for our company.”

Howard’s focus on SharePoint is evidenced by him being recently named one of the “Top 25 Most Influential SharePoint Thought Leaders in Social Business Today” by social email software provider harmon.ie®. According to harmon.ie® the SharePoint Most Influential (SMI) formula measures influence using a weighted average across a range of metrics including Alexa, Klout Influence, Google Page Rank, PeerIndex, HowSociable and Twitter Followers.

Earlier this month, Howard attended Microsoft’s SharePoint 2011 conference where the big story was integration. Reflecting on the conference Howard says, “Enterprises are reevaluating their corporate strategies and, as a result, social is quickly becoming a C-level priority.” Howard continues, “There’s a sense of urgency and realization that social needs to be incorporated with corporate strategy and fit with the internal tools and departmental processes companies already have in place. Telligent brings to the table the ‘social glue’ that does exactly this. Companies that understand and execute a clear social strategy will be the ones that define the next generation of business,” sums Howard.
