HR Technology Conference — BroadVision (Nasdaq:BVSN)
(, a pioneer in e-business and enterprise social
networking solutions, today announced the availability of the Clearvale API.
This release comes in tandem with two other announcements; BroadVision’s
Ecosystem launch and the implementation of their HR Solutions with human
interface solutions innovator, Synaptics.

BroadVision announced the Clearvale API today at the HR Technology
Conference in Chicago.

BroadVision recently launched the Clearvale(TM) platform, a “network of
networks” where more than 1,000 businesses are already engaging with
employees, partners, and customers in an open, navigable cloud-based

“Standalone enterprise social networks are valuable,” says BroadVision
Director of Product Strategy, Richard Hughes. “But where they add the most
value is where they are tightly integrated to ‘systems of record’ such as
HR, CRM and ERP systems. That’s what the Clearvale API enables.”

The Clearvale API (application programming interface) provides access to a
wide range of social functionality, including blogs, microblogs,
discussions, contact networks and document sharing. It is available to
software vendors, systems integrators and end-customers so that Clearvale
social capability can be embedded in packaged software, or integrated into
bespoke solutions. Clearvale provides a RESTful API, making it available to
the widest possible range of platforms.

“The investment in existing corporate IT systems is immense, yet no
organization can afford to ignore the benefits of social software in the
workplace,” says Hughes. “We believe that combining existing investments
with Clearvale social capabilities gives companies the ideal way of turning
their ‘systems of record’ into ‘systems of engagement’.”
