What is Enterprise 2.0?

Enterprise 2.0 combines two key concepts:

1) The application of Web 2.0, mobile and other emerging technologies to enhance the performance of organisations.

2) The creation of organisational structures and processes that support success in an intensely competitive, hyper-connected economy.

The Enterprise 2.0 Executive Forum is a deeply practical day for executives who want to harness social software to lead their organisations forward.

The Forum gathers industry leaders to share expertise and case studies that explain the power of Web 2.0 tools and how they can unlock the full potential of your organisation.
