Web 2.0 Technologies – Where is the Value
Chief Information Management Architect
Canadian Public Sector
By 2015, desktop operating systems will be largely irrelevant. The Web will be the only OS worth coding for. It won't matter what device you use, as long as it runs on the Web OS. You will reach the same distributed computer whether you log on via phone, PDA, laptop, or HDTV.
Expected to deliver:
Simpler to use;
“ By continuing to adopt an integrated approach to service and service delivery, one that is based on the needs of people, both citizens and employees, rather than the structure of departments, the Government of Canada expects to make services faster and simpler to use, more secure, more cost-effective, and less burdensome to users in terms of time, cost and effort."
Web 2.0 is the network as platform, spanning all connected devices; Web 2.0 applications are those that make the most of the intrinsic advantages of that platform: delivering software as a continually-updated service that gets better the more people use it, consuming and remixing data from multiple sources, including individual users, while providing their own data and services in a form that allows remixing by others, creating network effects through an "architecture of participation," and going beyond the page metaphor of Web 1.0 to deliver rich user experiences.
