The Next Step in Open Innovation from McKinsey

I recently wrote about Cisco's I-Prize on this blog (see Mining the Web and the World for Innovation ) that is a great example of co-creation that allows the web world to participate. McKinsey recently released a study on the topic, The Next Step in Open Innovation. I think the Cisco I-Prize effort scores high on each of these issues.

Turning Instant Messaging and Presence Upside-Down & Inside-Out

Collaborative Thinking

Although Cisco has a broader collaboration arsenal than Avaya given its WebEx Connect efforts - at best, that places competitive pressure on IBM and Microsoft in a somewhat traditional way. SaaS, in-and-of-itself is not a sustainable barrier or competitive differential for Cisco. So should Avaya and Cisco "give up" any notion of disrupting the IM/presence trend within the enterprise? And Cisco could have the best shot at aligning SIP/SIMPLE and XMPP/Jingle than other vendors.
