Microsoft’s Twitter for business

Microsoft is looking into ways to make social computing services part of business users’ lives with a new pilot program for “OfficeTalk.”

OfficeTalk is a concept test to explore the value of microblogging in the enterprise. OfficeTalk is deployed internally at Microsoft and has seen over 10,000 visitors and hundreds of messages posted daily.

They are now making OfficeTalk available to a few customers in a small pilot test. Because this is an early-stage concept, the OfficeTalk microblogging experience itself looks very similar to other well-known services.

The key difference is that the enterprise owns the data since the OfficeTalk server is hosted in the customer’s organization.
