In the link below I walk you through how BearingPoint implemented Confluence from the ground up to over 16,000 co-workers across the globe. We promoted organic advocacy and our wiki was started by users for users, not by IT, though they are now on board. BearingPoint’s current wiki started in a basement on a personal laptop and has since grown to a 2-node cluster with over 11K pages.
In the demo we show we use the wiki along with numerous macros and plugins we have implemented. Contegix and Customware, both Atlassian partners, get an honorable mention as they were crucial elements in getting BearingPoint’s wiki to reach the ‘critical mass’ it has.
Nate and Jay are the Click and Clack of social media at Bearingpoint. Offiicially, they have the titles of manager (Nate) and senior business consultant (Jay) in the emerging markets sector at their company but seriously, these guys are a true team. For instance, during our conversation I learned that not only do they physically work together but that they also blog together and present together (most recently at Enterprise 2.0).
In this interview, we focus on the groundbreaking activities that Nate and Jay are engaged in in the world of consulting. Instead locking up their knowledge and IP inside Bearingpoint’s walls they are setting it free one bit at a time while helping their clients do the same. More importantly, they’ve managed to get their management, legal and compliance teams comfortable with these activities. Jedi mind tricks, perhaps? Listen in to find out more. Nate & Jay’s Blog
