HR Technology Conference — BroadVision (Nasdaq:BVSN)
(, a pioneer in e-business and enterprise social
networking solutions, today announced the launch of a unique implementation
with Synaptics, a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile
computing, communications, and entertainment devices. Looking for a true
enterprise 2.0 approach to meeting its Human Resource needs, Synaptic
selected BroadVision’s Clearvale(TM) Ecosystems for HR. In a companion
announcement, BroadVision announced general availability of the solution,
the first enterprise social networking solution aimed at enabling HR
executives to manage any number of networks, both internal and external, via
a single common interface. BroadVision unveiled the solution today at the HR
Technology Conference in Chicago.

Announced in late May 2010, Clearvale is a fully-functional cloud-based
networking platform that enables businesses to easily build agile,
enterprise-class, high-performance virtual work environments. The new
Clearvale Ecosystems for HR solution — the first of several Ecosystem
solutions on the BroadVision/Clearvale product roadmap — was designed to
address an increasingly important customer requirement — the ability to
create and manage multiple networks with different user profiles.

“We were looking for an enterprise 2.0 solution that recognizes the reality
that business is best managed not on a single social network, but on a
‘network of networks’,” said Synaptics Senior Vice President of Global Human
Resources Jim Harrington. “Some networks need to be open to the public —
for example, networks for recruiting employees — and some need to remain
private. By enabling us to easily create and stitch together any number of
functional networks, BroadVision’s Clearvale Ecosystems solution is enabling
us to easily develop an enterprise 2.0 environment that reflects the way
work actually gets done.”

The Clearvale Ecosystems for HR solution enables businesses to manage,
publish and navigate multiple networks via a single environment. Beyond
that, it enables businesses to design their social interactions with
multiple constituencies with a single Web-based framework.

“The alternative would be to build multiple silos, none of which can speak
to one another,” said Harrington. “When designing our strategy for
enterprise 2.0, that was a potential problem we wanted to solve from right
at the start. With Clearvale, we were able to do that, and as a result we
are now in a position to further develop our approach to enterprise 2.0 in a
more efficient, effective, holistic way.”
