KP’s Ray Lane on Enterprise 2.0

While I’ve differed with Ray Lane in the past, he does have a usefully workmanlike take on Enterprise 2.0 technologies in the current BusinessWeek. Mind you, he stresses that Enterprise 2.0- to-SaaS connection, which is a funky and over-narrow view.

    “Now, an individual salesman could choose to subscribe to Salesforce.com and literally start entering data and all he’s got to do is pay $50 a month.”
    I find this really difficult to digest. In the era of systems integration, SOX and other controls, I don’t think this is the direction any company’s management would take. Its like individuals employees deciding to their business on MS Excel.
