A lot of what is touted as Enterprise 2.0 is just regurgitating a Social Network concept in a limited fashion. I don’t find corporate Wikis or other collaboration applications any more interesting than Microsoft Sharepoint or Messenger. That’s not to say they aren’t useful, I just don’t see where the real innovation is.
But here is a possible enterprise 2.0 application that just might be the real deal. ManagedObjects is releasing myCMDB which turns the normal CMDB process inside out and puts managing the CMDB in the hands of the employees via a social networking interface. I haven’t looked into this in detail so it’s hard to tell how much is real and how much is hype at this point. It’s also too soon to tell if the social networking model will really work for managing a CMDB.
But it’s the most interesting Enterprise 2.0 application I have seen so far.
