The tone of technology coverage and advancement has changed to follow the darlings of the consumer web word: Google, Facebook, iPhones, and the whiz-bang du jour. “Enterprise Software” is hardly the source of new technologies that can help mainstream business: the bulk of valuable innovation now occurs and comes from the consumer world. The dynamics of that consumer culture are much different than typical business concerns, and the result software tends to be a “leaky abstraction” that reflects that difference. This talk with cover these innovations and then explore how new consumer technologies like social networking, cloud computing & SaaS, mobile access, and new work habits fit in with the business world.
