Let’s talk about “Enterprise 2.0“.
The way we work is changing rapidly, offering an enormous competitive advantage to those who embrace the new tools that enable contextual, agile and simplified information exchange and collaboration to distributed workforces and networks of partners and customers.
Enterprise 2.0 is the term for the technologies and business practices that liberate the workforce from the constraints of legacy communication and productivity tools like email. It provides business managers with access to the right information at the right time through a web of inter-connected applications, services and devices. Enterprise 2.0 makes accessible the collective intelligence of many, translating to a huge competitive advantage in the form of increased innovation, productivity and agility.
|Enterprise 1.0||Enterprise 2.O|
IT-driven technology / Lack of user control
Teams are in one building / one time zone
Silos and boundaries
Need to know
Information systems are structured and dictated
Closed/ proprietary standards
Long time-to-market cycles
Ease of Organization Flow
Teams are global
Fuzzy boundaries, open borders
Information systems are emergent
Short time-to-market cycles
I must say I’m a true believer of the “Enterprise 2.0” concept. Where I’ve experienced way too much bureaucracy in the typical large hierarchy structured companies. Small agile entities that focus on their market!
