Enterprise 2.0 Schism

Andrew McAfee writes Nov 20, 2009: I’ve been thinking about what to write in the wake of the recent Enterprise 2.0 conference. One more summary seems unnecessary, since there have been so many good ones already. And the debates are starting to feel a little trumped up and warmed over, and so less fun to wade back into. And then I got inspiration from Greg Lloyd, President and co-founder of Traction Software and longtime technologist. In addition to running his company Greg finds time to write a great blog, and his post after the conference was called “Enterprise 2.0 Schism.”

The real power of the Web - Linking People + Linking Data

Linking people - The Social Web
  • People have experiences and stories that most likely at one time or another are of value to others.

The real power: When lots of people are connected and tools/places available to put data ==> create world power resources like: Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap and others.

There must be a way to leverage these kind of knowledge tools inside the Enterprise (no doubt there is a great need for it)

The Future of the Social Web

From Forester report:

The Future of the Social Web

Today’s social experience is disjointed because consumers have separate identities in each social network they visit. A simple set of technologies that enable a portable identity will soon empower consumers to bring their identities with them — transforming marketing, eCommerce, CRM, and advertising. IDs are just the beginning of this transformation, in which the Web will evolve step by step from separate social sites into a shared social experience. Consumers will rely on their peers as they make online decisions, whether or not brands choose to participate. Socially connected consumers will strengthen communities and shift power away from brands and CRM systems; eventually this will result in empowered communities defining the next generation of products.
