Neudesic Pulse featured as one of five significant Activities Stream players ​Neudesic Pulse has been identified as a "Strong Performer” and one of five "top-of-mind” activities streams providers in the "The Forrester Wave™: Activities Streams, Q2 2012” report published Thursday by Forrester Research, Inc. Neudesic believes this finding further validates the company’s strategy that enterprise social software must extend and enhance existing business applications to drive business value for organizations. Forrester reviewed the five significant vendors of activities streams and recognized Neudesic Pulse for its strong integration strategy with the broad Microsoft portfolio, in addition to Pulse’s platform for extending the value proposition to non-Microsoft products. "Neudesic leverages professional services and Microsoft know-how. Neudesic brought Pulse to market with a strong background in Microsoft-based professional services,” Forrester said in the report. "This approach has led to a strong integration strategy with the broad Microsoft portfolio and a platform for extending the value proposition to non-Microsoft products.” Forrester noted: "Neudesic comes from a history of professional services with a focus on Microsoft products. Not surprisingly, it has seen strong initial traction within its traditional customer base and has found a sweet spot filling social gaps in SharePoint 2010. However, Neudesic has a much broader strategy that many will find compelling. The integration with Microsoft reaches far beyond SharePoint to include Lync, enabling unified communications and Microsoft Dynamics on the business applications side. Pulse, while tightly integrated with SharePoint, is designed for integration with any user environment. It is also designed to consume data from any source, Microsoft or otherwise. Neudesic’s ability to provide professional services support to these complex, but valuable, integrations will help to drive deeper value from Pulse.” Neudesic recently launched Neudesic Pulse 3.0, which strengthened its integration with Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Pulse supports direct upload to SharePoint so documents now are automatically stored in pre-defined SharePoint sites. Pulse also features system hubs that can collect information from enterprise applications and make them available within the community. "Our approach with Neudesic Pulse has been to drive business value by creating a social fabric that enables organizations to leverage their existing investments so that users can be social where and how they choose,” said Ramin Vosough, Vice President, Products, Neudesic. "With Pulse, CIOs can integrate enterprise social capabilities within Microsoft solutions or any other systems they want to use. That means knowledge is captured and shared more broadly and easily than when organizations rely on a single application.”
