Enterprise 2.0, Where Art Thou?

Luis Suarez

Over the course of the years, if you have been a long time reader, you may remember how there were a number of themes I kept coming back to from Knowledge Management, to Collaboration, (Social) Learning, Online Communities and, specially, Social / Open Business. Pretty much like for Enterprise 2.0 , since I still feel we are only now just getting started with it and its role in transforming organisations from the inside out. . Remember Web 2.0

Enterprise 2.0 Conference: it’s about people to people

Dan Pontefract

As I was taking in the keynotes of the Enterprise 2.0 That is how knowledge transfer, networking and collaboration first begins. Sure, we may have situations where content can connect people, but the process typically starts within the confines of your strong and weak tie network.

If Your Enterprise Social Network Is a Ghost Town It’s Probably Due To Your Corporate Culture

Dan Pontefract

We deployed our enterprise social network last year, but it’s a ghost town. In part, it’s why enterprise social networks haven’t fully become a crucial component to an organization’s operating practice. Quite frankly, that saddens me because although technology isn’t the answer, enterprise social networks can do so much good for an organization’s culture and engagement.

Google+ may miss the big opportunity: spanning internal and external social networks

As many others have expressed, it is very frustrating to be delayed several months into the hottest new social space because we are more dedicated Google users than others.
