Summary: The Paradigm Shift, Technology Stack & Business Value
Web 2.0 is the next evolution of the web that has a new usage paradigm as well as a new technology paradigm. The former is characterized by “ architecture of participation ” and the latter is characterized by “ architecture of partition ”.
Web 2.0 is more than a consumer phenomenon. There is a consumer as well as an enterprise aspect of web 2.0. Consumer Web 2.0 and Enterprise Web 2.0 intersect at social computing.
Contrary to the common wisdom, Web 2.0 is based on a new technology foundation from Web 1.0. Though still evolving, the web 2.0 technology stack includes an application client container, an internet messaging bus and an enterprise mashup server . This technology stack enables “ architecture of partition ”, giving developers the capability to decide the appropriate architecture partition according to application requirements for the first time in history.
Beyond being a consumer phenomenon, web 2.0 has a significant impact on business computing by enabling better, faster, richer applications while reducing costs, with tangible and measurable real ROI .
