Metalayer.com is a global acting company with the presence in 3 continents. The challenge: In the quest to be more competitive in the global marketplace, today’s businesses are feeling pressure to reduce costs, make faster decisions and yet include an increasingly distributed workforce in critical corporate initiatives. It is becoming difficult to: Find sufficient time to work as a group on complex projects where multiple meetings or ongoing work sessions are required obtain a sufficient travel budget to bring all the right people together face to face schedule meeting with people that are in different time zones. While the use of email, conference calls, and groupware, and simple threaded discussion forums are becoming more pervasive, and are part of the solution, these tools are not optimized to support the way people work together in teams on the variety of projects that encounter every day. Email is very difficult to use when trying to hold an extended discussion between several member of a team, and scores of daily emails create an enormous amount of “noise”. Conference calls and videoconferencing do not allow for on-going discussion and follow-up, or full participation by all member of team, and are increasingly difficult to schedule. Groupware is often modeled on a “filling cabinet” system, which is optimized for sharing data, rather than collaborative conversations about the shared files. Threaded discussion forums do not provide an ongoing discussion environment that is organized around interrelated teams – or do they integrate well with enterprise information sources. In short, a complete collaborative meta layer is needed for distributed organization Why are we building a meta layer: San Francisco Zurich Pune

C-Commerce , is the set of electronically-enabled collaborative interactions between an enterprise, its suppliers, trading partners, customers and employees. Otherwise known as collaborative commerce , c-commerce leverages the Web to create and maintain an interactive business community of employees, trading partners, suppliers and customers. This real-time Internet connectivity enables data, intellectual capital, human resources and processes that were once considered internal to be shared – and used – by the collaborative community at a large .

The metalayer is a software layer placed between the application-layer and the presentation-layer.
From the user's perspective, the METALAYER provides one more abstraction layer between the hardware and the user environment. It consists of METAOBJECTS (XML), which provide an adaptive and user friendly computer interface, mainly through three services:
Integration information, applications and people
Personalization to the user specific needs
Security and authentication

Enterprises are looking into ways to build, manage and incorporate c-technology solutions and services into existing internal or external Portals , eMarketplaces and within the extended Enterprise . To be competitive in C-Commerce , Enterprises are focusing on building highly personalized, collaborative inter-company value community networks. The original intent of the Internet was to bring people together to share ideas, knowledge, and improve productivity – In short, to intelligently communicate and collaborate. Knowledge Communites or Communities of Interest are the only content and collaboration products that go the the heart of the Internet’s original intent. That is, to empower communities of employees , partner , and customers to collaborate and interact efficiently over the Inter-Intra- and Extranet. Community-Hub Multiple and cross-collaborative Inter-Enterprise Communities of Interest. (Intranet, Internet and Extranet) C ommunity N etworks
eMail will be dead soon ! Enterprises will provide Community-Hub‘s to bundle their visitors in groups of interest and to manage communities. Community Hubs will be implemented in most Portals , Marketplaces and WebSites to ensure People Relationships.
The number of eRelationships will dramatically increase in future and we will not be able to handle these relations in the way, we handle them today. Metalayer builds [eRleationship management software] for handling information sharing and collaboration. eMail will be dead soon !
- When our T I M E is what we have to offer the world, we look at T E C H N O L O G Y differently. - Velocity in the next economy increases as Community participation increases. Technology is human-centric designed. We expect it to actively and adaptively support our performance and productivity. The biggest innovation is the use of technology to improve the effectiveness of Information and Knowledge Sharing within “Community-Networks” Intelligent and context-driven People interaction is just another step toward transaction and relationship. Community Products and Services fundamentally improve the effectiveness of communication, Information, Innovation and collaborative Knowledge Sharing !
