ESME, the Enterprise Social Messaging Experiment, is an experimental communication project developed for SAP's 'Demo Jam' by a group of 24 collaborators. It's a red hot vision of a Twitter-like experience behind the firewall.
While not yet publicly available, ESME aims to bring all the best things about Twitter to global business communication. Rapid collaboration, network effects leveraged for support, multiple interfaces and some advanced features that Twitter itself doesn't yet offer. Check out the demo video embedded below.
ESME was written up today by ZDNet's Oliver Marks, who believes such functionality will be ubiquitous in the near future but applauds the team for pushing the envelope. While the team publicly involved is very interesting, we hear also that consultant and mystery
employee consultant at Twitter David Pollak is also a key player in ESME.
We think there's a whole lot of potential here.
