Enterprise Web 2.0

April 23, 2008 at 8:40 am Leave a comment

While at MIX08 I wrote about the session on Web 2.0 businesses and how they’re still looking for a business model to make money (besides advertising). I just found this article in the ECommerce Times, which talks about Web 2.0 technologies moving into the enterprise. One of the much talked about things recently is how consumers drive technology adoption in the enterprise (i.e. mobile phones, IM) and I think Web 2.0 is another one of those change agents. According to the Forrester study, enterprises are expected to spend about US$4.6B annually on Web 2.0 technologies! That’s a lot of money.

Read the ECommerce Times article and then watch the Channel 9 interview with Ray Ozzie on Live Mesh. It’s easy to see how these technologies all have to work within the consumer and the enterprise world. Particularly, as work-life-balance in this always-on society really morphs into work-life-integration.

Update: Robert Scoble takes a closer look at Live Mesh.
