Veodia won the Enterprise 2.0 launch pad!

We had a great time at the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston.

This year, most of the energy was focused on 'how to' enable companies with 2.0 methodologies and capabilities and not just 'what is E2.0?'.

Many great vendors and a lot of the big players were presenting applications and services.

We were happy to have the opportunity to present as part of the launch pad, together with GroupSwim, NewsGator, Project SocialSite (SUN) and Spaceo.us.

The demo went very well. We streamed live video from the session as well as demoed or plug-in for Jive Clearspace.

Many thanks to the Veodia team in San Mateo for their support !! and to Tom and Guillaume for a great team work!!


Thanks to the audience - we received 39% of the votes and won!

Veodia Wins At Enterprise 2.0 Launchpad

The people have voted, and Veodia won at the Enterprise 2.0 Launchpad an hour ago. Congratulations to them, and best wishes to them and the other four finalists.

The finalists:

Veodia -- 'live streaming video that puts your work in motion'
Project Socialsite -- 'delivering social networking functionality by adding social networking platform support based on the OpenSocial standard to any community site.'
Groupswim -- 'On-demand Social Collaboration and Community for Your Business'
Spaceo.us -- 'Bringing the REAL Enterprise 2.0 to your business' (they need a better tagline, I think).
Newsgator -- ' Deliver social computing business value with NewsGator Social Sites for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007'

The process worked pretty well, although I think next year we might start with a Twitpitch as the first round.

"...So, this was a contest, consisting of brief (three minute) elevator stories presenting their products by five of this week's vendors. The winner was to be voted on by the audience ("crowdware") using cell phone texting. The first four presenters did high-speed runthroughs of their highlight PowerPoint presentations. The last one, Veodia, a provider of high definition video as a service, featured live video of the event and the audience, very high definition. By far the coolest, and the audience agreed, voting them the winner with 39% of the overall vote, a 2:1 margin over the next highest score. An exhilarating way to end the morning..."
