Here, learn what experts are saying about this new tool, and find out how it will change the way you collaborate and get work done. Plus, watch a new webcast on demand to learn how to start innovating with Oracle WebCenter.

“The biggest change over the past few years is social networking. Today, organizations want to connect their people, their applications, their processes and their customers. Oracle Social Network provides that; all the tools are integrated and employees can work from anywhere in the world with the devices best suited to their job” —Oracle CEO Larry Ellison

“Oracle Social Network was also announced as part of the Oracle Public Cloud, a broad set of best-in-class, integrated services that provide customers with subscription-based, self-service access to Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Database, all completely managed, hosted and supported by Oracle. Oracle Social Network is part of the Oracle WebCenter family, and falls into the Social pillar.” —Kellsey Ruppel, senior product marketing manager at Oracle

“Oracle Social Network is really going to change the way that our application users get to interact and work with each other through this new social networking capability.” —Andy Kershaw, senior director of product management for Oracle Social Network

“With Oracle Social Network, you can bring people together across the organization into an impromptu conversation, sharing and collaborating while they have access to the CRM data.” —Andy MacMillan, vice president of product management at Oracle

“Oracle Social Network addresses the 'Collaboration Gap' of the traditional tool-centered approach that requires the user to break context to communicate and prevents the expansion of organizational knowledge. Oracle Social Network is uniquely able to bring together all people within the Enterprise and Cross-Enterprises.” —From Oracle White Paper: Oracle Social Network (pdf)
