Winners of the 2010 Forrester Groundswell Awards (Management)

We continue the list of finalists and winners with the management division -- internal applications aimed at employees. We got a good crop of entries in this division as well, since companies are increasingly adopting social applications for internal use as well as with customers. The diverse management winners included the US military, Intuit (its second award this year), and a company that makes and sells cement.

US Department of Defense's APAN Community by Telligent

The Department of Defense's APAN became the primary information sharing platform during the efforts to help after the massive Haiti earthquake. APAN, built on the Telligent platform, is a collaborative, unstructured community of Web portals including forums, wikis, and a mobile Mail gateway to make the system accessible through mobile email and SMS -- essential in emergency conditions. Success stories included getting a donated brain scan machine to where it was needed most, getting available rations to starving people who were nearby, and directing 250 injured survivors to a fully staffed hospital.
