Enterprise 2.0 Conference Recap

Enterprise 2.0

Heading back to Arizona today after a very interesting and informative Enterprise 2.0 2008 conference.

Had a chance to meet with the founders and CEO’s of a number of Enterprise 2.0 firms and have come away very impressed with the software solutions, business models, channel partner plans and ROI of most of the firms products.

There has been much speculation in the consumer Web 2.0 space as to when the bubble will burst on both the irrational valuations and fantastical (made up word:) revenue models based on advertising that consumer Web 2.0 has been built upon.

It not only is clear that Enterprise 2.0 firms are a different breed from their Web 2.0 brethren , it is also clear that many of these firms will not only survive the current economic slowdown but are thriving now that companies are looking for ways to contain cost. On Demand hosted solutions for the Enterprise are really gaining steam at the moment and look likely to increase in market and mind share based on the enthusiasm I have seen from attendees at the Enterprise 2.0 conference.

A few of the Enterprise 2.0 firms (and Enterprise firms like Sun and IBM) I had a chance to meet with whom I will post follow-up articles and reviews about over the next few weeks include:

  • Liquid Planner
  • Serena Software
  • Atlassian
  • GroupSwim
  • Small World Labs
  • Sun for Project SocialSite
  • IBM for Lotus Connections and Mashup Center
  • Oracle for Sales Prospector
  • Aegeon for Spaceo.us
  • Veodia
  • Igloo
  • WorkLight
  • Bungee

Stay tuned….

    Thanks for leaving a Seesmic Comment! Seesmic is pretty cool don’t you agree?
    Will have to start using Seesmic myself for comments in the next couple of weeks…is Seesmic enabled on ITSInsider?

    I wont be able to catch Office 2.0 this year due to commitments in China but will be back the following week for SAP TechEd in Vegas.

    Also this year perhaps you will attend Oracle Open World in late September?

    Catch you around
