Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

What is it about people in corporate learning that they feel the need to perpetuate the attitude of servitude it seems all learners must adopt. I did suggest that they would either use a Wiki behind the firewall or use a password protected Wiki - because that's where the work product goes. If it's captured in a system inside the corporate firewall, it won't go outside.

The wonderful world of the wiki

Dave Snowden

But adoption is an issue, it is (like complexity) a different way of thinking and acting and people seem to love their inefficiencies. If you keep things behind firewalls they get out anyway and then people can recreate them without acknowledgment.

Adaptation: The Key to Become a Socially Integrated Enterprise

Luis Suarez

Earlier on in the week, my good friend, Eric Zigus , put together a rather thought provoking blog post that surely has got me thinking big time about the whole topic of adoption of Social / Open Business and about the different techniques that fellow practitioners get to employ to help other knowledge workers embrace new technologies, whatever those may well be.

Towards a Trusted Framework for Identity and Data Sharing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Current firewall, event sharing, and attack detection approaches are simply not feasible as long-run solutions for cybersecurity, and we need to adopt an inherently more robust approach. I recently participated in a Treasury Identity Forum organized by the US Treasury Department in Washington, DC.

Whether businesses are still blocking the use of social networks behind the firewall empowering inadvertently their knowledge workers to make that assumption (and rightly so!) deployments have / will fail to deliver, which doesn’t sound too welcoming for those knowledge workers who see the many benefits for themselves with regards to Social, yet, it hasn’t struck a chord when they enter the firewall. .

Micro-blogging can help build your organisational culture

Dan Pontefract

When micro-blogging is brought to fruition inside the organization, safely tucked within the corporate firewalls, the connection can be extremely powerful.

Social Business in 2013 – An Opportunity (Open Business)

Luis Suarez

In previous blog entries I have reflected on the fact of how I keep seeing how more and more businesses seem to stagnate in their adoption efforts of becoming a Socially Integrated Enterprise after the first or second year of deploying social technologies behind the firewall (Never mind the external side for a minute… More on that one later on…). This is while we have witnessed and experienced the rampant adoption of social networking tools behind the firewall.

becoming collectively smarter

Harold Jarche

When markets came about, we had a few hundred years to move from the Hanseatic League, adopt double-entry bookkeeping, and progress to high frequency trading. Internal barriers include social media policies, firewalls, inefficient work practices, defining people by their job, and many others, too numerous to name. We are in the midst of a nano-bio-info-techno-cogno revolution.

Adoption. If you have a population of learners who have already adopted tools (such as blogging and social bookmarking) for themselves that are different than the corporate tool (the LMS) do you ask them to move? If your population has not adopted a tool yet, do you have a responsibility to the individual to show them tools that can live beyond their engagement at the company? It makes sense in many of these cases to keep it inside the firewall.

During all of this time I have been thinking hard about what I would want to do, whether I would want to automate part of my digital external footprint, or just disappear into thin air with that new focus area of behind the firewall interactions.

The Future of Work by 2020

Luis Suarez

Fascinating topic, don’t you think? And here we are, still in 2013, and already thinking about what the workplace of the future would be like by 2020. Well, one thing for sure is that it won’t be anything like we have today or what we may have had over the course of the last 50 years. Even more, I am suspecting that over the course of time, if not happening already today, we are going to make a very healthy split between work and jobs.

Jane Hart wants us to think about Silicon Valley start-ups where they “treat learning in a very different way – and usually adopt very social collaborative approaches to learning and working.”.

Open Business Strategies – Helping Someone Else Achieve Their Goals

IT Doesn’t Matter. Business processes do

Jay Cross

Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), the melding of ERP, SCM, CRM, PLM, and what-not into one all-encompassing application, is a major step forward, but it doesn’t link the organization with those outside the firewall such as partners and suppliers. Those who adopt the process mindset take on significant new responsibilities, for everyone knows that the people in the organization are more important than the technology.
