PALO ALTO, Calif. -- February 26, 2013

Socialtext, a leading enterprise social software provider, has been named one
of the “100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management” by KMWorld
magazine. For the past thirteen years, KMWorld has recognized the 100
companies that best demonstrate a commitment to their customers and the field
of knowledge management. The annual list has been compiled by knowledge
management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, and their customers
and colleagues.

"Social is a natural extension of knowledge management. But whereas
traditional knowledge management struggled to achieve knowledge capture and
sharing, social is weaving them into the daily flow of work,” said Michael
Idinopulos, General Manager, Socialtext. “We're thrilled to be recognized by
KMWorld, and by the way the knowledge management community has embraced social
and Socialtext."

Socialtext has been a leader in social collaboration for more than a decade,
delivering a resource for customers to communicate, collaborate on internal
projects, and connect on the information necessary to be more effective in the
workplace. By simplifying people's ability to share knowledge, ideas and
corporate data, Socialtext removes silos and corporate barriers that have
traditionally hampered companies' ability to respond to change and better
serve customers.

"Criteria for inclusion varies, but all of the companies on this year’s list
have been thoroughly evaluated, and each has truly contributed value to the
industry,” says Hugh McKellar, Editor-in-Chief, KMWorld. “Each has either
helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and they all share two
things—the velocity of innovation and the agility to serve their customers.
Socialtext is well deserving of this recognition."

The full list of winners will be unveiled in the March 2013 issue at For more information on Socialtext, visit,
