I use Stack Overflow regularly during my work and also ask some questions. I wonder how my company can benefit from me and other employees who participate on Stack Overflow.
For example, if two or more people from different teams in the company are asking questions on the same topic, it would be good if they could know about each other. At the moment, though, I don’t see where they could get to know each other. Or the company could know the hot topics in which their developers are interested and could organize trainings on those topics.
So my question is, How can Stack Overflow be integrated into my company, so there is not only the benefit of a found answer or a answered question, but also benefits such as people from different teams finding each other to share knowledge.
I work for an IT service provider, and the teams often work at different customers on different locations, so communication between teams is a bit of a problem. I agree. But if ten devs are asking questions on jpa and another five ask questions about hibernate, it probably would make sense to organize training for them. So probably having stats on the tags of a group of users is something that would make sense.
I think there is some misunderstanding here. I do not want Stack Exchange to be changed, nor am I requesting a new feature. I just wanted to know how I can use what already exists. I thought that the discusson tag and this site is also meant for discussions about Stack Overflow and how it may be used and integrated elsewhere.
