Re: Real World Use?

Good question, Jack. Obviously the notion of adding social media type capabilities to enhance and bring more collaboration to the product development experience is a good one, but the question remains do companies need or want an entirely new platform to deliver these functions or does it become yet another siloed system to manage and integrate.

Vuuch sees its platform as a complement to PLM systems, but PLM systems are slowly adding social capabilities to their platforms on their own. And there's the question of whether the workflow is natural or becomes enough of a distraction that it still remains easier to pick up the phone and call someone or simply shoot them an email.

Has anybody had any experience using something like this?  It seems like an outgrowth of the wiki's that started being popular a couple years ago.  I wonder at this time if there are much in real-world applications beyond a couple of the Big Names that use their own internal networks.
