REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:BVSN) a pioneer in e-business and enterprise social networking solutions, today launched a program to enable businesses around the globe to rapidly build cloud-based collaboration environments to accelerate various parts of their businesses. Dubbed "Choose the Cloud," the program offers businesses that are new to enterprise social networking — as well as customers on older software-based platforms — a better way to support collaboration, productivity, and innovation throughout their entire ecosystems — all in the cloud. Businesses that sign up for the "Choose the Cloud" program from now until December 31 st are eligible for discounts up to 50%. For more information on the program, go to http://www.broadvision.com/en/choosethecloud.php. "Adopting social technology is key to Enterprise 2.0 business transformation, and there are two ways to do it," said Dr. Pehong Chen, Founder and CEO of BroadVision. "The first is to continue with the old-fashioned on-premise software approach, and all of the baggage that comes with it, including expensive licensing and costly implementations. The second — the right way — is to do it over the cloud, which offers much more flexibility and agility, including an elastic pricing model that best fits the enterprise's deployment schedule and usage pattern. With BroadVision's 'Choose the Cloud' program, companies can now find the shortest path for doing social business — in the cloud, simply and quickly." BroadVision Clearvale is a next-generation cloud-based social business platform that is already enabling thousands of companies to deliver higher performance workforces, stronger partner networks, and more loyal, vibrant customer communities. Specifically, with BroadVision Clearvale's Ecosystems solution, the enterprise can dynamically configure and easily manage these internal or external networks to form any number of "ecosystems" that empower the right people across multiple organizations to achieve more effective collaboration and faster results.
