Check out the video from Neil Hair of the Rochester Institute of Technology, discusses two of the study’s most interesting findings:  the proliferation of social media tools to new areas of the business and the growing need for governance models.


  Another voice on the subject  is Cisco’s own Nick Earle, SVP Services who share highlights and talks about the research findings that indicates there may be some new public and private cloud tools that will be developed as corporate environments get their arms around and figure out how best to apply social networking.
