Enterprise 1.0 vs Enterprise 2.0

Just like the next person I hate "buzzwords", but you just cant stop them these days. I found the presentation below excellent in describing the differences....

Online Project Collaboration

After evaluating the major players within the market (Basecamp/Go plan etc) my favourite has to be Zoho!

Check out this video of the functionality:

IE Favourites/Firefox Bookmarks - They dont work for me!

Are you fed up of huge lists of favourites/bookmarks in your browser, never being able to find that great website you stumbled across......

Social Bookmarking!

OK so social bookmarking has been round for a while now (a year or so) but i only started using it recently and it makes such a difference if like me you like to surf the www.

Personally I found ( the best - you can share bookmarks within your social network, tag websites and search by tag......and the beauty is its all online. So the bookmarks are now available anywhere with an internet connection!

My advise is try one out!

I have also linked my bookmarks to my blog!

I work in Enterprise 1.0 - It's a long road to Enterprise 2.0

OK so for the last year or so I have been experimenting with all types of Web2.0 stuff....without really knowing anything about it!

LinkedIn, Facebook, Flickr, Shareslide, Basecamp, goplan,, Zoho Office 2.0 to name a few of my favourites!

I love these sites. When you get used to the flexibility of these tools at wish you could use them at work. So I want to take some of these tools and the overall social computing concepts and try to implement them into a large multinational Enterprise 1.0 environment. The benefits are clear but the adoption of new technology can always be a challenging sell!.....So the challenge is ahead. First step was to get buy-in from a small team of early adopters....The eCommerce Team!

The first tool will be not quite Enterprise 2.0 yet.

When I think SPS I think happy medium! It's a big step up from the old intranet that was impossible to maintain!! but its still clunky and slow....oh and seriously lacking in true collaboration functionality.

I hope to share some more thoughts and experiences soon......

My favourite "Meet _____" presentation:

The Beginning....


A bit about me and why I am bothering to start a blog!

I am a 26 year old eCommerce Project Manager currently working for a large multinational.

I enjoy researching and reading into new web2.0 technologies and how these can be successfully be introduced into all organisations....large or small.

Not to miss out on a new buzzword.....this is now known as "Enterprise 2.0"

I am just going to wait and see how the blog develops and post anything of interest....
