Enterprise 2.0 and the Future of Knowledge Management (12th Feb)

21 January, 2008


Over the last decade and more, knowledge management has provided the foundation for dramatic improvements in organisational performance. Now a whole new architecture is emerging for how knowledge can best be linked with its application. The characteristics of Web 2.0 are visible in the open web of blogging, Wikipedia, Facebook, Second Life, Flickr, del.icio.us, and a treasure trove of other interconnected Internet applications that are changing the nature of knowledge. Now similar tools are being applied inside organisations, giving birth to “Enterprise 2.0.” The future of knowledge management lies largely in tapping the potential of collective participation through the next generation of web tools, through effective design and architecture.

This presentation will cover:

  • The Web 2.0 Framework
  • Implementing Enterprise 2.0: Issues and Success Factors
  • The state of Enterprise 2.0 in Australia and globally
  • The Future of Knowledge Management
