Enterprise 2.0 – an evolution or revolution of the organisation

While cleaning up my inbox I stumbled upon some old mail conversations of our advisory board regarding a dogmatic discussion about whether Enterprise 2.0 is an "evolution" or "revolution". From my last post on the classification of use case it becomes clear that I am very much on the "evolutionary" side of the discussion when […]

Classification of Enterprise 2.0 use cases

What is Enterprise 2.0 all about? IMHO – this is the most asked question when talking about this topic. As several bright heads have said before instead of theoretically talking about the Enterprise 2.0 vision we need to talk about use cases and case studies that show and unveil the power of this so-called “social […]

While we are still far away from the maturity stage of Enterprise 2.0 in terms of numbers of realized projects, the discussion about the Enterprise 2.0 topic becomes more matured and leads finally beyond talking about the chances and opportunities.

[slideshare id=2017140&doc=adidasbarcelona090903s-090918063909-phpapp02] Crossposted from my posterous-Blog A nice updated slideshow of Adidas’ Christian Kuhna on their implementation approaches and lessons learned.

The video is already around for a few weeks, but Mattias Schwenk reposted it today. It contains the concept of the Enterprise 2.0 Bullseye, a look on […]

Social Software Categories

When it comes to Social Software in the Enterprise the full suite solutions are on their way. See the last Gartner Magic Quadrant for Social Software for details and vendors. As the pure products vanish and build up on functionality, it might be worth a look to some general categorizations of social software. So we […]

Social Media Revolution – really?

Everybody is liking and linking this video – so am I – but I am adding a link to Oliver Marks in ZDnet (Social Media Revolution?) – he’s got some valid points there: How did we get from that quality of presentation to claims that ’social media’ is the biggest shift (in what?) since the […]

What Works: The Web Way vs. The Wave Way

Crossposted from my posterous-Blog: Anil Dash writes about his doubts on Google Wave – will the complexity deter developers, will it invite them to add fancy bells and whistles or will it inspire them to add “incremental enhancements” to their sites?
