    http://del.icio.us/ is clearly an Enterprise 2.0 component. In addition to providing a single portable bookmark pool, it is another source of emerging folksonomies.

  2. J. Day Says:

    deli.icio.us is definitely a great example.

    For current an interesting (though biased look) at one particular corporate communications application, WebEx:

    I think that del.icio.us is a perfect example of Web 2.0…but it does not qualify (in my opinion) as an Enterprise 2.0 product / example because it is aimed at the average internet user, not at the Enterprise. If del.icio.us created a product that was aimed to sit ‘behind’ the firewall…for instance on the Intranet, rather than the Internet…then it would be Enterprise 2.0.

    Does that make sense?

  4. Marc Donner Says:

    Of course del.icio.us as it stands isn’t enterprise ready, but making it so would not be difficult. In the same way that Google makes and sells a search appliance that many firms are deploying within their intranets, Yahoo (the owners of del.icio.us now) could easily package it up and license/sell it to enterprises. My bet is that they’re busily at work on that. The clever thing to do, of course, is then to do some appropriate SOA tinkering so that the browser’s own ‘bookmark’ facility is backed by del.icio.us rather than by the local storage on the PC. Doing the engineering right will allow a person to use del.icio.us for his personal links and the enterprise del.icio.us for his corporate bookmarks and have them both presented cleanly by his web browser.

  5. Niall Cook Says:

    Given the comments about del.icio.us, you ought to include Cogenz in there (although not sure what category – it’s a social bookmarking platform for the enterprise).

    To Marc Donner – with Cogenz, users can choose whether to post bookmarks to their enterprise “space” in Cogenz or also (simultaneously) to their public “space” in del.icio.us.

    I don’t necssarily agree with adamkclarkson. A product can be “Enterprise 2.0” if it is *intended* to be used behind the firewall (with appropriate security) even if it isn’t physically located on the intranet – that’s what SaaS is all about.

    I’m surprised that Microsoft SharePoint 2007 isn’t listed.

    It could be argued that SharePoint 2003, while close to the concept of a “Enterprise 2.0”, wasn’t a true “freeform, emergent, and social software” platform that Enterprise 2.0 software are coined to be. In fact, it was built to be a content/document management system, with little colaboration (or at least ease of calboration) in mind.

    However, the SP2007 upgrade has all the marks (dare say promise) of Enterprise 2.0. While inheriting the content and document management strengths of 2003, it introduces blogs, wikies, RSS, and others. If configured correctly and with Management’s blessings (a major hurdle), it could easily become a platform Andrew McAfee woudl be happy to call Enterprise 2.0–“simple, free platforms for self-expression”.

    SP2007, however, introduces roadblock. A major different between SP2007 and the others listed (besides being a Microsoft product) is that Microsoft built this product with more controls build in and enabled by default. This, I’m sure, was to please the wims and concerns of IT Managers (I myself am one of them). IT and/or the user have to explicitly disable those controls (or lessen them) for, in my opinion, true emergence to take hold.

    Therefore, the real obstical to Enterprise 2.0 taking off and organizations seeing its real benefits, is the not the technology, platform, and in some cases, even the user-base. It is IT Management and their “drinking the Web 2.0 koolaid” (as I like to say) that will limit or exploit the promise of Web 2.0 for the Enterprise.

  7. Espen Antonsen Says:

    I think 24SevenOffice is a great example of ‘Enterprise 2.0’.

  8. Rafa Says:

    Hi mate,

    It is still a very interesting list. Have a look into mine… it will be posted in few minutes.

  14. Help Weight Says:

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you ought to publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a
    taboo matter but usually people do not discuss these subjects.
    To the next! Many thanks!!
