    • Solutions?
    • Don’t hire net gen?
    • But grownups use Web 2.0 too!
    • Ban Facebook?
    • Tallest eruption EVER, on Jupiter’s moon Io 500 km

    • Increase collaboration
    • What Does a Secure Web 2.0 Platform Need?
    • Secure authentication and authorisation
    • Business control
      • Branding
      • Users
      • Content creation
      • Content permissions
    • IT control
      • Internal users already known (e.g. Active Directory)
      • Easy to run secure
      • Scalable architecture
      • Auditable
    • Appropriate licensing
      • Does it suit your needs?
        • External vs Internal access
      • Does cost vary with utility?
      • What is the expected ROI?
    • Collaborative tools A Wordle from the Wikipedia page on Collaboration Platform
    • Flexibility and extensibility
    • So, Do You Build, Rent or Buy?
    • Build
      • E.g. Java, .NET
      • Lots of control
      • Lots of work
      • Lots of risk
      • Greater cost (even if you have developers)
    •  
    • Rent (SaaS)
      • E.g. Salesforce.com, NetSuite
      • Less risk
      • Much less control
      • Costs spread out
      • Hostage to service provider
    • That sure looks like Angus McDonald!
    • Buy
      • E.g. Community Manager.NET, SharePoint Portal Server
      • Greater control
      • Less risk
      • Less cost
      • Work on core benefits, not infrastructure
    • What about SharePoint?
    • SharePoint pros
      • Good for internal use
      • Standard site structures
      • Microsoft Office 2003/2007 integration
    • SharePoint cons
      • External access (licensing costs)
      • Branding
      • Content publishing
      • Search speed
      • Advanced features significantly increase final cost
    • What about Community Manager.NET?
    • Highly brandable
    •  
    • External access does not change cost
    •  
    • It’s built to be secure
    •  
    • Is It Really Secure?
      • Wine Selectors required PCI Compliance
      • Built to be secure (OWASP and PCI DSS)
      • Actively developed and improved
      • Simple to configure securely
      • Business user-proof
      • Built on .NET 3.5 and SQL Server 2005
    • Hugely useful features out of the box
    •  
    • Some of the highlights
      • Document management
      • Forums
      • Wikis
      • Blogs
      • Online training
      • RSS Reader and publishers
      • Developer framework and API
    • Great built-in search
    •  
    • Community Manager.NET is a secure platform
    •  
    • In summary
    • If you need Web 2.0 apps
