Collaboration Industry Veteran Joel Oleson Joins ViewDo Labs as Technology Evangelist

Will Leverage Decades of Collaboration Experience to Lead Market Conversation on Enterprise Social Network Adoption, Analytics and Governance

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 3, 2013) -  ViewDo Labs®, a pioneer in enterprise social network analytics and governance, today announced the addition of Joel Oleson to its team as a technology evangelist for all things related to enterprise social networking. Known for his ability to globally bring communities together around innovative collaboration technologies, be it SharePoint, Yammer, Chatter and others, Joel Oleson will immediately embark on the mission of educating ViewDo's growing client base and the market at large about the evolving nature of enterprise social network adoption, management and measurable value to anyone within an enterprise.

Joel brings both a current and historical perspective to the rapid evolution taking place in enterprise social networking through a range of roles across large organizations including Microsoft, Quest Software and the LDS Church. He has been recognized as top SharePoint blogger and as the No. 1 Top Online SharePoint Influencer in a 2012 study by a Forbes columnist. As of today, he will be sharing a variety of content and opinions at Collabshow.com, documenting the changing nature of enterprise social networking with customer insights, shared experiences and posts from the field on what's being discussed at various global events.

"I've seen first-hand the dynamic and transformative nature a fully realized enterprise social network strategy can have on a variety of organizations," said Oleson. "As enterprises embrace employee adoption of enterprise social networking tools, they will go through a variety of stages on the road to maximize utilization and benefit. ViewDo is in a great position to assist clients across that spectrum, and I'm excited about helping the company showcase the true impact of enterprise social networking."

ViewDo Labs recently launched to change the way people work with a focus on driving enterprise adoption, governance, analytics and ROI across the spectrum of enterprise social collaboration tools, while also reducing the fear, uncertainty and doubt that comes with incorporating new collaboration tools. ViewDo Labs debuts with ViewPoint Enterprise, the first ever cross-platform Enterprise Social Network (ESN) analytics application. Through ViewPoint Enterprise and future offerings, ViewDo Labs offers a unified view of what's happening with Yammer, SharePoint, Chatter and other ESNs to allow companies to increase adoption while lowering the risks of collaboration.

"Joel Oleson is known as not only a true believer in the power of collaboration -- he speaks from real world experience on the needs and benefits that enterprises are clamoring for as they look to knock down internal information silos," said Michael Alden, CEO and President of ViewDo Labs. "Joel will help our clients and the market at large not only understand ViewDo's role in this changing landscape -- he will bring a unique perspective to partners and the collaboration community at large."
