Not many concepts/ technologies have received the kind of hype that Web 2.0 has been subjected to. Observers have even gone ahead and called Web 2.0 the SOA of the Internet. Not only does this hype show no signs of abating but today companies from Intel to Wells Fargo are figuring out how they can create an enterprise that collaborates, innovates freely and “breathes.”
Given the imaginative name “Enterprise 2.0,” will these technologies change the way employees and teams collaborate and eventually the way companies innovate? Will Web 2.0 be a real-time innovation delivery tool—imparting the same benefits to people as SOA does to computing and business processes?
