Clearvale Social Engagement Analysis Service Delivers Expanded Measurement and
Analytical Capabilities

New Service Helps Companies Analyze the Success of Social Adoption by Applying
Scientific Intelligence to Understand How Members Are Connecting Across a
Business Social Network

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc.
(Nasdaq:BVSN), a global leader in social business solutions, today announced
at the E2 Innovate Conference in Santa Clara the launch of its Clearvale
Social Engagement Analysis Service. The new service from BroadVision Global
Services  is designed to help Clearvale™ enterprise social networking platform
customers better understand and measure how well they are engaging with
employees, customers, and partners through the use of social analytics.

Using a combination of social analysis tools and data science principles,
BroadVision consultants work with companies to scientifically analyze the
success of their social adoption.While a business social network improves
knowledge flows, accelerates innovation, and drives better collaboration
across the organization, statistical data is needed to accurately measure how
the network evolves over time.A few examples of activity that companies are
now able to measure with this service include:

  *Participation Inequality- the extent to which levels of activity differ
    between different groups of members in the network.A successful business
    social network should encourage participation from as many people as
    possible so it's important to know if a few very active users are
    compensating for a large number of inactive users.
  *Social Reach- the breadth of interaction between members.Business social
    networks connect people but if members are not interacting with the
    content, they are not truly being social.
  *Inter-department Connectivity- the activity between different departments
    in the network.Good connectivity inside a team is important, however,
    high activity levels between other members outside their own department
    breaks down organizational silos for increased communication and
    collaboration.

The Clearvale Social Engagement Analysis Service is delivered as a stand-alone
service from BroadVision Global Services for Clearvale customers or as a
component service of the Clearvale Social Enterprise Transformation (SET)
methodology, a 90-day program for assessing readiness, planning, establishing,
and refining a social enterprise ecosystem.The easy-to-follow SET program is
designed to help companies avoid the pitfalls of failed social initiatives by
combining social best practices, coaching, and a trial of the Clearvale
platform.

"A business social network provides the opportunity to share knowledge and
experience across the organization and with its partners and customers.The
way many organizations measure network adoption success relies on emotional
measures, which are interesting but need to be backed up with hard data," said
Richard Hughes, Director of Social Strategy at BroadVision."The Clearvale
Social Engagement Analysis Service is changing the status quo by
scientifically analyzing the strength of connection between people and the
relationships between people on the network to ensure successful adoption."

Clearvale is the social network for business where transparency and
accountability mean real work gets done.Working socially with Clearvale
enables companies to unlock true business potential by empowering employees to
share information anytime, with anyone, and on any device; engage with
colleagues, partners, and customers; and track business processes, sources of
knowledge, and network adoption.Only Clearvale enables businesses to
establish separate social networks for both internal and external entities and
manage them together as a whole, creating a social enterprise ecosystem.

BroadVision will showcase Clearvale at the E2 Innovate conference in the Expo
Hall at booth number 306.
