A great way to break down the silos of an organization and facilitate collaboration and information sharing is to deploy a social media tool (Facebook) but for the Federal Enterprise. Some of you may be familar with Yammer as some agency use this free tool. Even if you were to acquire a license Yammer is not FISMA compliant.
I work for TIBCO Federal and we have a “Facebook for the Enterprise” called tibbr. tibbr http://www.tibbr.com is the social computing platform that means business. As oppose to the concept of following people, with tibbr you follow subjects that connects your people with the relevant colleagues, data and information they need to collaborate more efficiently and perform their best work. Carrying the intuitive look and feel of technologies people enjoy on the consumer Web, tibbr enables real time communication and information sharing around the subjects/strategies to accomplish the mission. More importantly you can start collecting the intellectual knowledge from workers across the agency/region that exist that you did not even know was there. tibbr is FISMA compliant. tibbr can be deployed to 1,000’s of users on a secure social platform in a matter of hours, either in the Amazon Gov cloud or on premises.
