Join us on October 24 for Valley View, our exciting live video show. In addition to chats with Cisco CEO John Chambers & Oracle President Mark Hurd, we'll take deep dive into an exclusive report on how technology companies spent economic stimulus money (and what the outcome of that spending was). We'll also feature our Elevator Pitch session, a rapid-fire deluge of information about new technology approaches.

One company's elevator pitch we'll be highlighting: Hearsay Social.

The social enterprise space is littered with exciting companies. Stop me if you've heard this pitch: "We're like Facebook, but for the enterprise." So it's often hard to sort out the differences between all of these companies, and which is in the best position to help your organization reach its goals. Hearsay Social is firmly rooted in enterprise social, and it is also firmly rooted in helping sales organizations and other business entities engage with customers using traditional, public-facing social media, with the typical controls you'd expect in the enterprise. Indeed, Hearsay counts many household names, including some financial services companies, as customers.
