IBM has launched a new initiative wrapping up all its Web2.0 style solutions under one banner – “Web2.0 Goes to Work“:
Web 2.0 Goes to Work
Drive innovation and growth with Web 2.0 technologies
Organizations want to take advantage of open, flexible Web 2.0 technologies. They want to use social software and mash-ups to add a new dimension of imagination and innovation. IBM’s ‘Web 2.0 Goes to Work’ initiative is already helping businesses apply Web 2.0 technologies across the globe to gain a competitive advantage.
Web 2.0 technologies at work now
Already announced, IBM Lotus® Connections is a Web 2.0 driven product which enables a new level of ‘collective intelligence.’
Imagine, social software for business that empowers you to be more innovative and helps you execute more quickly by using dynamic networks of coworkers, partners and customers.
IBM has built its ‘Web 2.0 Goes to Work’ philosophy around three key components – Economic Impact, Community Value and Enabling Technologies to help businesses apply Web 2.0 technologies and principles in a reliable and manageable way.
Products in the initiative currently include:
- QEDWiki (first I’ve heard of this..)
- IBM Websphere Portal
- DB2 9 PureXML
- IBM Lotus Quickr
- Websphere Portlet Factory
- Websphere Commerce (Web2.0??)
- IBM Lotus Connections
It will be interesting to see how this plays out as time goes on…
