Lockheed’s Linda Gooden Talks Eureka Streams

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) unveiled a new open-source project for enterprise social networking called Eureka Streams.

According to eWeek: “The Eureka Streams technology, which looks and behaves much like existing commercial social networking software, is aimed at helping what Lockheed Martin refers to as knowledge workers make informed decisions by finding relevant colleagues and groups, following their streams of activity, and engaging in conversation.”

“Lockheed Martin has placed an emphasis on social media adoption by finding innovative ways to integrate a social dimension into our existing process and tools while reducing total cost of ownership, ” said Linda Gooden, executive vice president for Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Services business area, in a statement released by the company. “We are excited to now share our investment back to the open-source community to help other organizations meet their knowledge sharing challenges.”
