Linked data will transform “Hits” to “Results”.  See the full presentation slides here.

The Semantic Web isn’t just about putting data on the web. It is about making links, so that a person or machine can explore the web of data.  With linked data, when you have some of it, you can find other, related, data. Read More

#TED Talk Tim Berners-Lee on the next Web

20 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. For his next project, he’s building a web for open, linked data that could do for numbers what the Web did for words, pictures, video: unlock our data and reframe the way we use it together. Link

The Cornerstone of Enterprise 2.0 ROI

The cornerstone of enterprise architecture in your organization unites people and process.  Yes, I put “people” first because I believe if you put process or even technology before “people” is the fast-track to failure and your organization will soon look like a scene from that movie 2012.  I hear so many organizations say they value people, “Our customers come first…”, “We value our employees…”, this core value seems lost on some enterprise projects.  The strategy of capturing return on investment (ROI) is “listening”.  Listen to your employees.

  • What is in their way of helping you and your organization on the path to success?
  • Who has the next great idea that will catapult your organization past your competitors?
  • What if this great idea came from multiple sources? How would you connect them?

Your customers are smart about your products and services.  Your customers are also smart about your competitors products and services.  You may not be able to find a customer that knows everything, but a gathering of your customers can help you learn more than you know now.  Listen to your customers.

  • What do they like most about your products or services?
  • What do they like least about your products or services?
  • Who prevents them from always using your products and services?
  • When do they need your products or services most?
  • Where are they and how can you get more?

You are smart.  You have thoughts and ideas about a strategy for a positive future.  You also have many resources at your disposal to help shape these thoughts and ideas into plans.  You can connect with unlimited resources to help execute these plans.  Listen to you.

  • What would make your life easier?
  • When do you share with others?
  • Where can you connect with others?
  • Why would you hide knowledge?

The Cloud is Moving into the Enterprise

Cloud Computing is moving toward the enterprise or maybe its the other way around.  Amazon (Elastic Compute Cloud [Amazon EC2] ) has a facility near Washington DC, actually just down the street from my house.  We also welcome IBM into the DC neighborhood, see what IBM thinks about Cloud Computing.  The movement towards Government 2.0 will also have government agencies thinking more about cloud computing.  You can see what Vivek Kundra (The Federal Government’s CIO) thinks about the future of Government IT in this report by David C. Wyld Moving to the Cloud: An Introduction to Cloud Computing in Government”.

The Art of Enterprise Architecture in E 2.0

The art of enterprise architecture is all about connecting people and leveraging resources.

You may not be ready for the cloud yet, but there are many resources to help you with your needs.  The key to information architecture is to capture knowledge in “Shareable Content Objects”.  I believe the day of creating “web sites”, “portals”, and such will soon come to an end.  The future is about less risk and distributed responsibility with Platforms, “Platform as a Service” (PaaS) [ Cloudware ]  We will be free to focus on connections and content for distribution channels. The content distribution channels will continue blending together as we see mobile, web, and traditional media becoming one.

The process of implementing enterprise 2.0 is a broad topic.  Ross Dawson does a great job covering this in his book, “Implementing Enterprise 2.0: A Practical Guide To Creating Business Value Inside Organizations With Web Technologies”  You can also find some great people and resources from the “Enterprise 2.0 Conference“, I have a small article about the conference here: 5 Trends Supporting the Future of Enterprise 2.0 There are a lot of smart people sharing their expertise on the web, here are just a few of my favorites this week.

Open Source: Social Media, Web, Government, & US 2.0 #oscon

Mobile Enterprise 2.0 and Social Media growth explosion happens because of Crowd Sourcing and Open Source. The world is changing and we have great opportunities in front of us. The Web 2.0 and Government 2.0 movement is taking us into new frontiers where we will explore fresh new ways of communication and collaboration. There have been many things going on this week that has me thinking more about the internet as an operating system. Open Source: “Some of the best things in life are free”. While the value of open source is recognized by more private companies and government agencies, I am wondering more about the future of open source. Here are a few videos I hope you share with your friends.

“Rebuilding the World” by Don Tapscott

The global economic crisis is a wakeup call to the world: we need to rethink and rebuild many of the organizations and institutions that have served us well for decades, but now have come to the end of their life cycle. The financial services industry, for example, does not just need fresh infusion of capital or some new regulations; it needs a whole new operating model — one based on transparency, sharing of intellectual property and global governance.
