Enterprise 2.0 maturity
I’m currently reading an article by Dion Hinchcliffe from 2006 where he discusses Web 2.0 and the emergence of Enterprise 2. 0 – Web 2.0 definition updated and Enterprise 2.0 emerges.
I like the concept that Web 2.0/Enterprise 2.0 is in a constant state of “perpetual beta” supported by organic growth and driven by the requirements of the User community. This allows for new features to be added regularly based upon user experience and feedback.
This also brings agility, innovation and the development of best of breed applications.
The Enterprise 2.0 approach allows Organisations to harness the collective Enterprise intelligence as well as leveraging off a global community of Users and IT Entrepreneurs.
I think it worthwhile to restate here the eight core Web 2.0 patterns
1. Harnessing Collective Intelligence
2. Data is the Next “Intel Inside”
3. Innovation in Assembly
4. Rich User Experiences
5. Software Above the Level of a Single Device
6. Perpetual Beta
7. Leveraging the Long Tail
8. Lightweight Software/Business Models and Cost Effective Scalability
Now three years, on I’m wondering what we have learnt?
