Rachel - thanks for your kind words. We are excited about what the merger of Mzinga and Prospero bring to the table for businesses, but you're right, there is a lot of competition in this space. To that end, we can't afford to rest on our laurels - even for a moment! We look forward to your keeping us honest.

Best,
Aaron (@astrout)

Looking forward to it!

Rachel,

great coverage. Do you think that Mzinga is trying to be too many things to too many people? They now have 3 platforms to thinks about and potentially integrate. I would love your opinion on this.

cheers,

mike

Thanks Mike!

From my understanding, one platform will be phased out, one will be used for external communities (and for exposing content from other systems to those communities), and one for internal enterprise communities.

This seems like a logical breakdown in the way companies are currently deploying social networks but long term I think companies will want one platform across their different communities.

Integration and migration is always tricky though so how smoothly Mzinga can sell and support this strategy has more to do with their business practices than the technology per se. Will be interesting to see how it evolves.
