Over one year ago, I co-authored a white paper with Dennis McDonald on the impacts of “Web 2.0″ on the IT Department, it’s still one of the top downloaded documents at Dennis’s site. (We started it in 2005)
I guess we were thinking pretty far ahead, as just NOW IT departments are figuring out how to integrate, implement social media tools. I probably would have used the term Social Media, rather than Web 2.0 but that term had not yet crossed my vocabulary.
I guess this goes to show the time for adoption is starting now, and with Nick and Richard’s resource indicating that enterprises are more interested in feature sets from established software suite providers than one-off software start-ups, apparently the CIO is starting to wake up. (Forrester report available). Need some quick ways to get started? Mario summarizes.
What’s on my mind for a year from now? The normalization of Social Media, and how powers will start to shift and hierarchies will form, the socialist dream never will happen.
