SMBs will drive the adoption of enterprise crowdsourcing

Last month Forbes named  salesforce.com as the “World’s Most Innovative Company”. It would be an underwhelming expression to describe this as simply impressive. With an enterprise value of $20.7B and valuation of the last five-year metrics of an average of 39.5% revenue growth and 78.7% net income growth, salesforce.com tops Amazon at number two with comparative metrics of $92.7B, 32% and 37.6% respectively. So how is it that salesforce.com can top companies like Apple, standing at number five, whose innovations have fundamentally changed the paradigm regarding the way we buy and listen to music, watch movies and interact with our friends, colleagues and contacts within our social networks?

The answer lies in the fact that while Apple has transformed aspects of our day-to-day lives, salesforce.com has transformed the way we do business, being instrumental in moving firms to the Cloud and for fundamentally changing the way we buy and run our systems and infrastructure.

What’s even more remarkable however is the fact that both salesforce.com and Amazon didn’t initially target large customers. They established a solid base of customers by winning over high numbers of small customers and, once their base was consolidated, they moved into the large enterprise space.

CrowdConf2011: How the Indian Outsourcing Model Paves the Way for Enterprise Crowdsourcing

There is no question in my mind that crowdsourcing is a provocative model that will re-shape and augment more established forms of sourcing. It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but rather how large a disruption will amass — and how quickly.

While the model seems new, it has much in common with more established models — and as such, we have case history that we can learn from that will help us accelerate the wholesale adoption of crowdsourcing.


Let’s take a look at the outsourcing industry in India. How the Indians conquered outsourcing is a model we can replicate to establish the broad adoption of crowdsourcing. Back in the 1990’s, the Indian outsourcers weren’t considered as competition for the large national or global ITO and BPO providers. While the larger players were competing for transactions in the tens or hundreds of millions in annual contract value, the Indians were winning pitiful contracts — a million here, two million there — so small they were off radar.

Crowdsourcing Implications for Medium and Large Businesses
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Lisa Barone’s “7 Ways to Incorporate Crowdsourcing into Your Business” originally published by OutspokenMedia.com recently sparked quite a discussion amongst the online crowdsourcing community.  While Barone’s article covers a list of crowdsourcing applications for SMBs and start-ups, we should also consider the implications of crowdsourcing for bigger businesses and large enterprises. Crowdsourcing is definitely impacting a wide range of business models, but its use and applicability varies according to the size of the entity.

Groupon Endorses Crowdsourcing: A Win For The Crowdsourcing Industry
Cloud Labor

Groupon’s decision to award Clickworker.com a substantial contract to lead a large-scale, global translation and optimization project in a number of languages was a landmark award for the crowdsourcing industry. Clickworker’s win was a win for Clickworker and a win for the industry!  Not only was this award significant in terms of it being an endorsement of crowdsourcing as a competitive delivery model for outsourced services by the global Internet coupon giant, but the fact that Groupon went public with the announcement was in itself momentous!

Last week I spoke with Clickworker’s CEO, Wolfgang Kitza, to not only congratulate him on his company’s win but to also find out more about Clickworker’s strategy and to learn more about what was needed to support the adoption of crowdsourcing by global brands.

Brazil Hosts The First International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-Creation

A small gathering congregated in São Paulo this weekend, ahead of the first International Conference on Crowdsourcing, being hosted tomorrow at the offices of one of Brazil’s largest telcos, Vivo. Having not long returned from Europe, presenting at CrowdConvention in Berlin in June, Europe’s first ever Crowdsourcing event [link], the privilege once more be part of a small quorum of crowdsourcing evangelists sharing their insights and experience to another group of inquisitive on-lookers and practitioners alike, this time south of the equator, is one that is not overlooked.

Under the enthusiastic and tenacious leadership of Marina Miranda, Managing Director of mutopo, Latin America the event is sure to be a success. Based out of mutopo’s São Paulo Office, Miranda has secured contributions from enterprise sponsors Telefônica, vivo, Microsoft BizSpark, Tecnisa and Boa Vista and raised ticket sales of ~300, great for a first event in a new market. Miranda has also been able to secure a notable cast of speakers representing both local companies and the international market.

mutopo’s core business is social production with a mission to help organizations think through crowdsourcing applications and to support the implementation of initiatives often involving the introduction of other crowdsourcing tool providers to help 

Brazil, having experienced a huge uptake over the last twelve months both in the use of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding and in terms of the number of new platforms launched, was ready and primed for its first event. The last twelve months have seen an increased adoption of crowdsourcing as a model to support open innovation, as a model for the production of creative works and for solutions requiring the crowd to collect and organize information.
