Gartner Research released the first Magic Quadrant report on the Enterprise Social Software market this week.
This is a pretty big milestone in the development of the Enterprise 2.0 category at-large. Just a few years ago, the only analysts covering the space were blogalysts. Now, perhaps the most rigorous and influential vendor analyst reports in enterprise software says it really is enterprise software. The analysis rightly says we all have work to do.
It also says that Socialtext is the most visionary provider and behind only Microsoft, BEA and IBM in execution. This tells me that if we want to be the leader we need to demonstrate better execution (mind you, I'm not taking out IBM next year, but it is good feedback). SuiteTwo, of which we are a core component, also scored well in vision but has a way to go in execution.
