REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and CHICAGO, Sept. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HR Technology Conference --BroadVision (Nasdaq:BVSN) (), a pioneer in e-business and enterprise social networking solutions, today announced the launch of a unique implementation with Synaptics, a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices. Looking for a true enterprise 2.0 approach to meeting its Human Resource needs, Synaptic selected BroadVision's ClearvaleTM Ecosystems for HR. In a companion announcement, BroadVision announced general availability of the solution, the first enterprise social networking solution aimed at enabling HR executives to manage any number of networks, both internal and external, via a single common interface. BroadVision unveiled the solution today at the HR Technology Conference in Chicago.
Announced in late May 2010, Clearvale is a fully-functional cloud-based networking platform that enables businesses to easily build agile, enterprise-class, high-performance virtual work environments. The new Clearvale Ecosystems for HR solution – the first of several Ecosystem solutions on the BroadVision/Clearvale product roadmap – was designed to address an increasingly important customer requirement – the ability to create and manage multiple networks with different user profiles.
"We were looking for an enterprise 2.0 solution that recognizes the reality that business is best managed not on a single social network, but on a 'network of networks'," said Synaptics Senior Vice President of Global Human Resources Jim Harrington. "Some networks need to be open to the public – for example, networks for recruiting employees – and some need to remain private. By enabling us to easily create and stitch together any number of functional networks, BroadVision 's Clearvale Ecosystems solution is enabling us to easily develop an enterprise 2.0 environment that reflects the way work actually gets done."
The Clearvale Ecosystems for HR solution enables businesses to manage, publish and navigate multiple networks via a single environment. Beyond that, it enables businesses to design their social interactions with multiple constituencies with a single Web-based framework.
"The alternative would be to build multiple silos, none of which can speak to one another," said Harrington. "When designing our strategy for enterprise 2.0, that was a potential problem we wanted to solve from right at the start. With Clearvale, we were able to do that, and as a result we are now in a position to further develop our approach to enterprise 2.0 in a more efficient, effective, holistic way."
