  • 4. Why should you even care about Web 2.0? 1) Everybody is talking about it. Love it or hate it, you need to know it. Sources: Gartner's 2006 Emerging Technologies Hype Cycle Highlights Key Technology Themes, August 2006 http://www.geospatialsemanticweb.com/2006/08/10/gartners-hype-cycle-for-emerging-technologies-2006 October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 5. Why should you even care about Web 2.0? 2. Gartner has recently short listed Web 2.0 as a key technology theme for enterprises to examine closely in the near future 3. Still according to Gartner, Inc: – As the number of participants and types of collaborative models continues to grow, power will increasingly shift to the consumer, forcing businesses to proactively market to and analyze community influencers. – By enabling decentralized innovation, Web 2.0 catalyzes rapid consumer-driven change, which will accelerate market share growth for companies that exploit it, i.e., Web 2.0 offers many opportunities for growth – Web 2.0 architecture provides an adaptable technology model that requires significantly less- expensive infrastructure to deliver its benefits. See Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud and Simple Storage Service to see how low cost this can become: • $0.20 per GB of data transferred • $0.15 per GB per month for storage. – By 2008, the majority of Global 1000 companies will have adopted several technology- related aspects of Web 2.0 4. It’s already impacting businesses, even the ones that have not yet embraced it: Demo October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 6. Why should you even care about Web 2.0? • The future of business is selling less of more. Infinite choice and lower costs to connect supply and demand is changing the nature of the market and will transform entire industries. Growth is in the Long Tail. Chris Anderson, “The Long Tail” • On disruptive technologies: “We cannot expect our customers to lead us toward innovations that they do not know they need.” Clayton M. Christensen, “The Innovator’s Dilemma” • “When the world is flat, whatever can be done will be done. There's only one question left: will it be done BY you, or TO you?” Thomas L. Friedman, “The World Is Flat” October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape

  • 10. What Is Web 2.0 It’s the second generation of Internet-based services that let people collaborate and share information online in previously unavailable ways. Wikipedia “A true Web 2.0 application is one that gets better the more people use it.” Tim O’Reilly “Web 2.0 is an attitude, not a technology” Ian Davis, Internet Alchemy Source: Dion Hinchcliffe’s Web 2.0 Blog October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 11. 1. The Web As A Platform • A platform beats an application every time • MS-Windows tilted the balance against Lotus 1-2-3, Wordperfect and Netscape by controlling the OS platform • Now the battle is between platforms: which architecture and business model is better suited to the opportunity ahead: OS or Web? – Desktop vs. Webtop (EyeOS, Goowy) and IOS (XIOS) – MS-Outlook vs. Zimbra, Gmail – MS-Word vs. Google Docs – MS-Excel vs. Google Spreadsheets – Encyclopedia Britannica, Encarta vs. Wikipedia – National Geographic Maps vs. Google Maps – Quicken, MS-Money vs. Wesabe • Phone call analogy Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 12. 2. Harnessing Collective Intelligence • A true Web 2.0 application is one that gets better the more people use it (Tim O’Reilly) • James Surowiecki’s “The Wisdom of Crowds“ • User Created Content: Google’s page rank, Amazon’s user reviews, “most popular” and linked sales, Digg’s thumbs up/down • Tagging & Folksonomy: Flickr, Del.icio.us • Wetware - People as the computing power: Amazon Mechanical Turk, reCAPTCHA • Aggregate user data as a side effect of their use of the application • Wikipedia (Radical trust) and Pandora (the Long Tail) • PredictWallStreet.com Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 13. 3. Data Is The Next “Intel Inside” • Applications are increasingly data-driven. For competitive advantage, seek to own a unique, hard-to-recreate source of data. • The race is on to own certain classes of core data • Google Maps, Trip Advisor, Image: RingBits.com Amazon’s ASIN vs ISBN, Wikipedia vs. Britannica & Encarta • “Some rights reserved”: Creative Commons • Zopa’s explorer Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 14. 4. End of the Software Release Cycle • Shift from “Software as an Artifact” to “Software as a Service” (SaaS) – Operations must become a core competency – Software will cease to perform unless it’s maintained on a daily basis • The Perpetual Beta: New features added on a regular basis not monolithic releases, forever smoothly incorporated to the normal user experience. • Real-time monitoring of user behaviour also a core competency – Users as “co-developers” – Engage your users as real-time testers, and instrument the service so that you know how people use the new features. • DimeWise Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 15. 5. Lightweight Programming Models • Cooperate, don't control. Web 2.0 applications are built of a network of cooperating data services • Offer web services interfaces and content syndication, and re-use the data services of others • Design for hackability and remixability: allow for loosely coupled systems • Amazon: SOAP vs. REST (Representational State Transfer) • Google Maps API, “Innovation in Assembly”: Mashups • HousingMaps, ProgrammableWeb, Ning • Zillow, GeeZeo (Account Aggregation + Text Messaging) Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape

  • 17. 6. Software Above the Level of a Single Device • The PC is no longer the only access device for internet applications, and applications that are limited to a single device are less valuable than those that are connected. • Mobile handsets are the most ubiquitous mobile networking devices in the planet, miles ahead of laptops, PDAs and MP3 players (> 2 billion units). • Design your application from the get-go to integrate services across handheld devices, PCs, and internet servers. • Grid computing, Napster, BitTorrent, iTunes, Skype, TiVo • Not-so-distant future: cars and phones not only consuming data but reporting it • You say gadget, I say widget Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 18. 7. Rich User Experiences • “The NET is a waste of time, and that's exactly what's right about it.” (William Gibson again) • “Rich Internet Applications” (RIA) • Flash, Flex, AJAX, Laszlo • Typically uses XML to transfer data asynchronously • Provide a more desktop-like experience over the web • Classic vs. AJAX Web Application Model: Google Maps vs. Yahoo! Maps • GMail, DotPhoto • Banking/financial examples: Product Selection, Web Banking, Mortgage Selection, Mortgage Calculator, Insurance Calculator Partially based on: What Is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly, http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html JUMP October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape

What Is Enterprise 2.0 The Enterprise 2.0 term derives from Web 2.0 and covers the introduction and implementation of social software within the enterprise, and the social and organizational changes related to its use. Wikipedia Source: Dion Hinchcliffe’s Blog October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 31. What Is Enterprise 2.0 • Enterprise 2.0 is more than just Web 2.0 for business. • Enterprise computing is far more complex than personal computing. It includes legacy environments, Web 2.0 innumerable vendors, mismatched data sources, stringent regulations and far flung users. • While Web 2.0 can deliver genuine advantages for both Enterprise 2.0 business users and consumers, the real quot;Enterprise 2.0quot; will encompass a far broader and more complex vision. M.R. Rangaswami, Sand Hill Group October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape

  • 33. Services Oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 • Both SOA and Web 2.0 represent a break with technology and application centric practices to focus on how technology is used. Both enable a user centric approach to IT. • SOA breaks business processes into smaller pieces (components) and then aggregate these individual pieces in services aligned with business activities. SOA delivers a level of efficiency, agility and flexibility not possible with an application centric approach. But providing flexible services is a moot point if you don’t know your users’ wants and needs. • Web 2.0, on the other hand, puts the user front and centre, smoothing the flow of information between people. It facilitates the collaborative creation, combination and distribution of content, delivering a rich user experience. By enabling a two-way communication, it shifts the power towards the consumer, who can now voice her/his opinions and choose from a market of almost infinite choice (C2B and C2*).

  • 34. There’s more to Web 2.0 than purely technology • Technology: Architecture focuses on the Web's technology architecture and development model which is a subset of service-oriented architecture (SOA) that provides a globally linked, decentralized model that is network-centric and extensible. • Business: It is distinguished by empowering third parties and consumers to repurpose content and services in new and unique ways. It relies on an open and extensible business ecosystem, embracing greater reliance on and collaboration with externalities. Web business models will enable nimble new competitors to succeed and challenge established enterprises to adapt to survive. • People: Web community is a participatory approach in which users are not simply service and content consumers, but also act as content and application creators becoming networked collective intelligence. As the number of participants and types of collaborative models continues to grow, power will increasingly shift to the consumer, forcing businesses to proactively market to and analyze community influencers.

  • 36. To Innovate or Not To Innovate October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 37. The risk of not innovating • Retail banks can’t assume that the growth and returns of the recent past will continue. Amid a throng of banking competitors – including new market entrants, forward-thinking incumbents and non-banks – banks need to differentiate themselves in ways that are not easily duplicated. • Banking by and large lags far behind most other consumer retail industries in developing leading-edge products and services. • “The only way for banks to grow in the domestic market will be to strengthen relationships with their current customers, and to do that banks will have to innovate their offerings” (Michael McKeon, Booz Allen) Sources: Innovating Customer Service: Retail Banking’s New Frontier http://www.strategy-business.com/press/sbkw2/sbkwarticle/sbkw061222?pg=all&tid=230 Dare to be different: Why banking innovation matters now - IBM Institute for Business Value study http://www-935.ibm.com/services/us/index.wss/ibvstudy/bcs/a1025350?cntxt=a1000043 October 12, 2007 Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA: How the Social Computing (R)evolution is changing the business landscape
  • 38. Easier said than done • Innovation is not easy in banking: regulations acting as “speed bumps” can slow down product and marketing innovation. • Before introducing new products and sometimes even new marketing programs, banks have to consider such factors as privacy laws, debt security guidelines, and fair lending practices. • Departments within banking organizations are usually highly segregated from one another; the people who know what kind of technical innovations are needed are often completely isolated from those in a position to deliver the innovations. Cross-departmental teamwork is generally not encouraged. • Two other forces — risk aversion and inertia — can tamp down the urge to innovate. Banks must be exceptionally careful not to overcomplicate their offerings because product confusion can undermine the confidence the consumer must have in the bank to trust it with their money.

  • 49. Wikitorial • Term coined by the Los Angeles Times to describe a traditional editorial that can be edited in the fashion of a wiki • On June 17, 2005 the Los Angeles Times wrote the first Wikitorial, entitled: War and Consequences. The new Wikitorial was about the War in Iraq. Below that editorial they wrote an invitation to their readers to rewrite the editorial in the wiki fashion. • The L.A. Times Wikitorial was closed on June 19, 2005. It is supposed that this is due to a vandal inserting multiple pictures of goatse on the wiki main page. Around 4:30 AM local time the vandal was changing the site to pornographic photos and just as quickly, within seconds, a guardian was reverting it back to the earlier editorial. Shortly after 5:00 AM the connection was broken and the Wikitorial has not been available since then.

Chevy Tahoe: chevyapprentice.com • The 2007 Tahoe was featured on and promoted through Donald Trump's The Apprentice, where the two teams put together a show for the top General Motors employees to learn about the new Tahoe. • Also, The Apprentice sponsored an online contest in which anyone could create a commercial for the new Tahoe by entering text captions into the provided video clips; the winner's ad would air on national television. • Many users took advantage of the contest to point out the SUV's higher fuel usage relative to other types of vehicles. Chevy originally said it would keep the negative ads online, but eventually took them down. • Videos still available in YouTube!
