Cisco SocialMiner was announced today as a smart software for scaling the public social media's interests. The users of Facebook and Twitter and many other public forums and blogs will be likely to be scrutinized in order to offer the companies the chance to answer proactively to their needs.
Cisco's new software is designed to compress all the debates about a certain product over the online media so that the companies in charge can react effectively and immediately. The use of cloud networks is expanding and so this new and interactive media needs features to gauge it's potential.
Cisco speculated the endless possibilities and it also enhances the Cisco SocialMiner software's resorts with the introduction of new tools such as Cisco Contact Center and Cisco Finesse. The vice president and general manager of Cisco Customer Collaboration business unit declares that "Companies are realizing that by ignoring the online chatter, they're opening up opportunities for their competitors and allowing dialogue about their brand to happen without them".
This is something that competes with a number of startups building businesses around social-specific data and analytics, but as this type of data becomes more necessary for business use, larger companies are going to find ways to offer the services within thieir larger suite of solutions.
