Who's Blogging at the Big Four? Let's Connect!

We set out to see who is blogging at the Big Four....simply by typing in the word blog in the search at each site. And this is what we found:

At Accenture (NYSE:ACN), it looks like two technologists are blogging with Accenture's blessing. The Accenture blog focuses on emerging technologies and how technology innovation is likely to impact business in the future. Ed Gottsman (BlogGottsman), from Accenture (NYSE:ACN)Technology Labs, tends to focus on unanticipated (and sometimes alarming) uses and applications of new technologies...

We've moved. Click here to go to the full post at the new Big Four Blog at Big4.com!

Another Big Four-related blog is Professional Services Monitor Today.

Thanks for the feedback, thats to us; Ron, Juhana, and myself, the difference we are trying to get out of blogging, an interactive set of comments on experiences, as opposed to yet more content on a web site.

We have been trying some other forms of achieving this and Ron is planning to add these to his blog this week.

BTW may be its an interesting test to see if the blog writers at the big Four are also listening as well and hear these comments!

There was a BearingPoint blog a few months ago called BEaringIt. A very sarcastic series of posts allegedly written by a new BearingPoint hire. It described "his" experiences and impressions of the company, and reprinted internal e-mails with additional comments and insights.

Disappeared suddenly after getting a bit of press - the NY Times or Washington Post I think. A few people on Vault.com were following it in the BearingPoint message boards.

BearingPoint's magazine EMPOWERED had an article on corporate blogging about a year ago. I emailed the writer and editor of the magazine to find out who in BearingPoint was looking into blogs. The editor admitted that the article was purchased or freelanced out to someone outside the firm, and that there was no blogging going on.

Our team is trying to improve internal communications, and I pitched a collaborative blog, where anyone on the team could post anything anytime, and we could tag/categorize to kind of put some structure to it. Everyone looked at me like I had two heads once I had said "blog". They ended up deciding on a team Newsletter to be published monthly -- what is this, 1986? That was two months ago, and the first issue has not been released.

After the Bearing-IT fiasco, I don't think anyone in BearingPoint will do much blogging. I've posted some rants about our corporate communications, but I've stripped out any links to BE.

I only came across your blog recently. I work for BearingPoint Australia and I've been blogging for almost a year now at An Expert's Guide to WebSphere Information Integration.

BearingPoint publish a lot of content at the BearingPoint Institute and the format is a short html description and an attached PDF or video. There are some 25 contributors from senior positions. They also have the Empowered Magazine. I would love to see this on a blogging platform for comments and trackbacks but I guess it is serving its purpose of reaching executives.

There was a very good BearingPoint blogger here on Blogger who posted while she was based in Afghanistan helping rebuild the government IT systems.
