today's hyper-competitive global economy, the ability to be agile and respond
to change is more important than ever before. Information and the interactions
around it have become the key assets of most enterprises, and making correct
decisions in shrinking cycle times is the defining characteristic
of winning companies. The market imperative to access the right information
and people at the right time has led to an increased interest in building
a next-generation enterprise workplace. Such a workplace leverages
Web 2.0 technologies and usage patterns to transition the enterprise to
an Internet-powered, user-focused, and community-centric social fabric that
ties together people, ideas, content, processes, systems, and enterprise
Bringing Web 2.0 capabilities and services to the enterprise is more than just introducing the latest technology; it's about changing the traditional business model and tapping into the creativity, intellect, and passion of every single employee. It is much more important for companies to understand the changing trends in business than to just implement the next "hot" technology product.
