Salesforce.com has launched ChatterExchange, an app marketplace for Chatter, the enterprise collaboration platform it introduced earlier this year. It is built on "Cloud 2" -- the company's name for the next generation of cloud computing: social, collaborative, and capable of delivering real-time access to data and information across new mobile devices. When it becomes generally available, Chatter will be "the de facto collaboration mechanism in our CRM product line and our Force.com product line," said Kraig Swensrud, SVP of product marketing.


A reliable and WELL TRAINED User Base !!

Clearly, the most adept group of users [students] will benefit from Chatter; as will the universities that seek their interest and participation through out the 'student life cycle'. Imagine the power of Chatter for Students (and Higher Ed in general) - who can now share; classes, study groups, assignment projects, social interests, curricula, career aspirations and experiences, content, research; join common groups as members of specific Colleges, departments, upperclassmen, Freshman, Sophomores, frats, sororities - in a SECURE environment that is flexible enough for personalization; all while taking advantage of a common security and data model. And, because the interface is familiar - the learning curve is about a half a minute !!!

By the way - we can explore the implications for MOBILE and iPad and eTextbooks at another time - all available immediately when Chatter becomes generally available (http://thehigheredcloud.com).

And what about those student graduates? Now they can have a shared platform so they can stay connected to their Alma mater and each other and all those wonderful experiences they had in school. Keeping those 'memories' fresh, relevant and alive will insure benefits to the individuals and the institution (think Fund Raising, Career Development). Chatter for Students or Facebook for Business - call it what you want; its a wonderful tool to engage the student from application through the entire 'student life cycle'

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
