Enterprise 2.0 Conference Notes: Three Approaches to Social Computing Platforms

Green Chameleon

I think there are markets for each of the three approaches on this panel. (I Jive - this transformation will be quick but there is more to it than just throwing in a blog or wiki - you need to have people who understand the enterprise - it is complex - a few web developers will not address this - it is more than just social networking - people need to be able to work together once they find each other - they need capabilities to work with all the complexity of the enterprise.

These thoughts are very valid for global activities, though we are starting in our company to look at a second approach: implement knowledge sharing in people’s daily activities without imposing additional work. The base for this approach is to look at the ‘Information Lifecycle’, how is information created from first drafts to published final documents.

Enterprise Micro-Messaging: Standalone or Integrated with Comprehensive Collaboration Platform? Or Both?

Its ironic that having said that I don’t see blogs as a discussion tool…. “I I don’t see blogs as a discussion tool, for the average person like me. They might be a discussion tool for people like Tony Bates, Stephen Downes, George Siemens and others who have a well-recognized reputation and likely a lot of hits and comments on their blogs. But for people like me, my blog is not a discussion venue.”. On reflection I find blogging just a bit too distant for discussion.

It also means that we can integrate the elements and that users can dive in, immerse themselves in the resources, and develop a live culture of learning the language. Hank Horkoff’s first ChinesePod blog post explained this pretty well in September 2005.
