Enterprise 2.0: the use of social tools within an organisation

Steve Perry (ex-Freshfields) has published his presentation from the recent Perfect Information Conference. The presentation "Enterprise 2.0 - The use of social tools with an organisation" looks in detail at Enterprise 2.0 and how it could be used within an organisation.

The presentation starts with a couple of good definitions of Enterprise 2.0, the clearest in my opinion has to be the following "Building, intuitive, collaborative tools and solutions that let people work in a flexible way"

Steve then looks at some of the challenges of implementing Enterprise 2.0, the business benefits associated with using Enterprise 2.0 tools and some of the reasons why it's important for organisations to embrace Enterprise 2.0. The presentation finishes with a look at some of the future developments in Enterprise 2.0, this include Search tools becoming even more important and end-user generated content.

This is a useful introduction to how Enterprise 2.0 actually works in an organisation. I've embedded the presentation below for everyone to enjoy.

    Harvard's take on social learning tools:
    "Enterprise 2.0 is having an important impact on the eLearning technology landscape, and will lead the shift in how learning platforms are deployed, how learners interact with these solutions and with each other. A successful “learning” community needs both Content and Context: 1) Great Content at the core, and 2) Group Context that makes the content meaningful and relevant; the latter, being achieved through an engaged community that is enabled through effective Enterprise 2.0 technology."
