Reading List

Forrester Research reveals an Enterprise Web 2.0 growth chart.
Abstract: Social software has proven valuable in enterprises for collaborative knowledge management. In order to introduce a wiki in the enterprise, we propose a solution that combines Web 2.0 and SemanticWeb technologies. We describe how this solution resolves the technical challenges, beyond that, opens up new opportunities, and, also, how it can be realized in a concrete enterprise scenario.
Organizations once satisfied with simple intranets now seek out technologies that foster cooperation among employees and enahle teams to work together, regardless of how far the members are separated by time and distance. One such technology is wikis.
Teams often include offsite workers, business partners, clients, even suppliers. How can you communicate with them effectively and bring them all together in one spot? By using Internet technologies that foster collaboration.
