New York, NY – Monday, January 26th, 2015: Social intranet software vendors Jostle and ThoughtFarmer have signed up as the first two “Innovation Spotlight” sponsors for the upcoming virtual global conference, Digital Workplace 24 (#DW24), on May 20th and 21st.
Jostle and ThoughtFarmer are two popular social intranet software products, both created by companies based in Vancouver, British Columbia, a thriving technology hub on Canada’s west coast.
Jostle offers a simple user experience with a highly visual interface that elevates the role of imagery on the intranet. Jostle offers a range of social features, from status updates and discussion streams to employee recognition tools. The software is first and foremost designed to build high levels of participation and system engagement.
ThoughtFarmer provides a platform that marries the traditional content-focused features of intranets with rich social tools. Dynamic navigational structures, content management tools and multilingual functionality combine with ubiquitous commenting and activity streams for a system that balances content with user interaction.
Both vendors signed on for Innovation Spotlight because it offers enterprise software vendors a well-balanced sponsorship package. The Innovation Spotlight allows vendors to demonstrate their most compelling functionality to a live global audience of intranet and digital workplace practitioners, while also providing several other promotional channels.
DWG designed the Innovation Spotlight to provide as much value to Digital Workplace 24 attendees as it provides to sponsors. It acts as a matchmaking service of sorts, allowing the key features of innovative mid-sized software vendors to shine through. This lets event attendees find inspiration beyond the narrow perspectives allowed by the software with which they are already familiar and to discover potential solutions that match their specific needs.
The Innovation Spotlight links one software vendor to each of the 14 most popular hours of Digital Workplace 24. The single-size sponsorship package gives balanced and detailed views of all the sponsors. This provides an inviting “window shopping” experience for event registrants and elevates event sponsorship beyond basic logo placement.
The Innovation Spotlight aligns closely with the vision for Digital Workplace 24 as a global convening for intranet and digital workplace managers. DWG has designed Digital Workplace 24 to deliver rich online webinar content during the work hours of every timezone around the world. Live tours of intranets and other digital workplace applications from leading global organizations will combine with insightful thought leader interviews to create an inspiring and educational experience for attendees. The agenda for Digital Workplace 24 already includes live site tours from Adobe, Barclays, EY and IKEA.
