Student Technologists Bring Invaluable Social Innovation for Microsoft
Social computing is changing the way today’s businesses operate and greatly impacting user expectations. Microsoft Student Partners (MSP), a technology development educational program, witnessed this first hand when their 4,000 students expressed displeasure at the lack of social communication and collaboration capabilities on their website.
Users today expect a professional social network that mimics their personal social communities – but creating an acceptable social environment can be time-consuming and expensive.
Review this case study to find out how MSP overcame these challenges by integrating an innovative social platform into their existing SharePoint technology to create the ideal social environment for students to connect, collaborate and learn.
