Dachis Group Announces Launch of the Social Business Index

The Social Business Index Is the Only Information Service Providing Ongoing Real-Time Ranking, Analysis, and Benchmarking of Social Business Adoption and Performance; Now Accepting Applications for Participation

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 29, 2011) - Dachis Group, the world's leader in Social Business, announced today the launch of the Social Business Index.

The Social Business Index is the only information service providing ongoing real-time ranking, analysis, and benchmarking of Social Business adoption and performance of the world's most connected and engaged companies on hundreds of key engagement and activity metrics across social platforms globally.

At launch, the Social Business Index measures the social performance of the world's most engaged companies, their subsidiaries, and their brands by analyzing hundreds of millions of signals globally from customers, employees, partners, influencers, and the marketplace in real time across the Social Business graph.

The Social Business Index, built on top of Dachis Group's Social Business Intelligence as a Service (SBIaaS) Platform, is the world's most comprehensive platform for identifying actionable insights, measuring social ROI, and analyzing the effectiveness of strategies and tactics organizations employ to engage the marketplace.

In addition to the use of natural language processing, semantic analysis, and machine learning algorithms, the underlying Social Business Intelligence as a Service (SBIaaS) Platform applies Dachis Group's deep experience as the world's leader in Social Business Strategy, Engagement, and Intelligence using the industry recognized Social Business Design framework.

Later this summer, a public version of the Social Business Index will be available free to the public, while enhanced "freemium" and paid versions offering much deeper and more robust analytics helping to better understand how to improve their Social Business performance by brands, geography, and subsidiary will be made available to registered users and companies.

Applications for participation are initially being accepted from social practitioners, social strategy owners, brand team members, or business unit heads at the world's leading companies. Apply now at http://www.socialbusinessindex.com/.
