7Summits Noted as Multi-Platform Partner in Gartner’s Market Guide for Enterprise Social Networking Applications

Kari-Lynn O'Neil | March 7, 2017

7Summits, the leading online community solution provider, today announced that the company is referenced as a muti-platform partner in the October 2016 Gartner’s Market Guide for Enterprise Social Networking Applications. The Market Guide is considered one of the industry’s leading, objective perspectives of technology leaders in the Enterprise Social Networking (ESN) space.

In the Market Guide for ESN Applications, Gartner defines ESN applications that “facilitate, capture and organize open conversations and information sharing between individual workers and groups within an organization.” Gartner also noted, “One aspect that more clearly differentiates these applications, however, is the nature of their alignment with particular work contexts through integration with other applications. The use of social networking applications in ‘other’ work contexts is likely to become a more important source of value for users, and a source of differentiation for vendors.”
