Open Enterprise 2009

We are soliciting inputs for our six month research project, capturing the state of Web 2.0 adoption, technology, and practices in the enterprise.

Please consider...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Fostering adoption via bottom-up and top-down strategies

    Can enterprise 2.0 be successful relying only on viral adoption by employees? Or does it need top-level sponsorship to push it forward?

      • How are enterprises measuring success of Web 2.0 initiatives

        McKinsey just released a study of +50 Web 2.0 adopting companies over 2 years. http://snurl.com/d0zyz "As many survey respondents are dissatisfied with their use of Web 2.0 technologies as are satisfied." I want to know how enteprises are measuring "success" & "satisfaction" with Web 2.0 adoption.

        • Assessing "current state" and likely paths to "future state"

          It would be valuable to outline the true current penetration of E2.0 apps within businesses and individual users.... and likely paths to broader adoption. I think enterprises belong to one of a few organizational personas... just like individual users. It would be helpful to understand the impact on path and pace for future of E2.0

          • Managing the content firehose created by social software

            Wide adoption of social software in the enterprise means employees and customers have access to the publish button thereby creating content at a speed that dwarfs what we saw with traditional KM or CMS applications. How are users discovering and consuming content relevant to them?

              • Explore causes of resistance in large companies

                A theme that you might want to consider including is the causes of resistance within large companies, banks etc. The quality of the tools are for naught unless they can get their minds over the barriers, including data security, legal, oranisational ownership, and technology integration to name four.

                • Investigate intersection of domain specific software w/ SNS

                  From my perspective, the really interesting use case for SNS is the sort of thing that Ross and others have called "in the flow". Are there examples of this in the wild? How are people integrating domain specific software (say, claims handling in the insurance industry) with SNS? Is anybody doing this yet? If not, why not? Do they want to?

                  • Clearly define enterprise 2.0 as a sector

                    There is alot of talk around enterprise 2.0 these days but the sector spans everything from cloud computing in enterprise IT deployments to online collaborative software like Huddle.net. It would be great if the report could spend some time defining the sector, and maybe defining some sub-categories in the sector.

                      • Extending internal SNS to trading partners

                        Either in parallel with internal adoption or subsequent to it, investigate the benefits/pitfalls of including customers/suppliers - the gapingvoid 'porous membrane'?
