4 Why Blogs & Wikis

5 Two Words

6 “8 Below” The Expert (and an artist): Movie Max: siberian huskie found via Disney Real Max: sakhalin huskie found via Wikipedia link The Connector, a dog lover: robert_patersons_weblog

7 Why Blogs & Wikis? They Work They Scale

8 Marshall McLuhan “I don’t know who discovered water, but it wasn’t a fish.”

9 Time Offers Context to History Doug Engelbart’s NLS (oNLine System a “hypertext journaling system”) first demonstrated in 1968 brought time to hypertext.

11 Blogs bring Context to the Net ?

12 The Aggregate Tells A Story… Mrs. Superman raises cancer awareness, for a few days from sci fi to main stream An opportunity… or a flash in the pan? Follow the “story” with RSS

13 KM Works (Finally)

14 IDC Agrees From: Collaboration and Wikis and Blogs, Oh My! How Web Publishing Tools Could Change Collaboration - IDC, 2004, #32471 Enterprise Blogs/Wikis

15 What are these Four Letter Words?

16 What’s in a Word? BLOG WIKI

17 Quasi-Religious? BLOG “Unedited voice of a single person” WIKI “Group voice, anyone can edit and anyone can read”

18 KM? BLOG Tacit WIKI Explicit

19 Dictionary (.com)? BLOG “an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page” WIKI Any collaborative website that users can easily modify via the web, typically without restriction. ” website

20 Literal? BLOG Web (hypertext) Log (journal) WIKI Hawaiian for “quick” or “fast”

21 Practical WIKI Displayed as a set of linked web pages System for easily posting, editing and managing web pages pertaining to a certain topic or purpose… BLOG Displayed in time order …and usually including features like comments, categories, permalinks, RSS (or other notification features), trackbacks

22 Wikis (in the Enterprise) are Not Readable by all Editable by all Encyclopedias

23 Wikipedia – Bad Example “Wikipedia is a popular wiki, but it’s an outlier and is not representative of what most enterprises are doing with wikis” Peter O’Kelly Research Director Collaboration & Content Strategies Service Burton Group

24 Blogs (in the Enterprise) are Not Personal Voice Opinion Conjecture Blabbing Distracting

25 1992 Towards High Performance Organizations: A Strategic Role for Groupware The Mother of All Demos Engelbart’s 1968 demo showed three first time innovations: 1) NLS, a Hypertext Journaling System, 2) GUI, and 3) Mouse! WIKI BLOG ?

26 Wikis and Blogs are for Working Communication What content types do you deal with? Which are a problem? Working Communication –Reports –Problems / Opportunities –Exceptions / Responses –Questions / Answers –Research notes –First impressions –FAQs –Plans and status Disintegration a Problem! –Email vs. Files vs. Other Traditional approaches haven’t solved working communication problems Top down Knowledge Management is expensive and disappointing

27 Wiki Requirement ------------ Product Plan ------------- Requirement ----------------- Requirement ------------ Organized by links and pages

28 Wiki Happens in Blog Timeline Idea Requirement Proposal comments Requirement comments Action

29 Blog Timeline Spans Groups Market Intelligence Product Development Account Management

30 Remember the Time Wall: One Way to Display a Timeline Is this a blog or a wiki?

31 Display Should be Up to You Blog Chronology Document Directory Wiki

32 Blog. Wiki. What? Wikis and Blogs  Proven collaboration results at web scale Enterprise hypertext collaboration should combine: –Communication –Collaborative content editing (in “Documents” or Hypertext) –Strong meta data model, flexible display modes, strong vector for time ordering Englebart called NLS a Journaling System We call it Traction TeamPage You can should call it what it’s deployed for: –A research system –A product planning system –A corporate communications home page

33 What is 2.0, Really and the KM 2.0 Path

34 Web 2.0 From Silos To Services

35 SOAP XML-RPC Search Interface Mobile Interface Enterprise 2.0  Web 2.0 +  Distributed services architecture  Global identity, local permission  Net-centric, standard interfaces  Correlated timelines  Permission filtered search Active Directory IM Notification ATOM LDAP

36 KM 2.0  Enterprise 2.0 +  Widgets in Weblogs and Wikis connect the dots  Links and flat, social & filtered taxonomy adds intelligence to information BLOGS ERP WIKIS CRM HRMS CMS DMS

37 Enterprise Examples… Management Consulting: IT Group Non Profit Association: IJIS DOD: CIO Funded Liberty Project Finance: Global Bank Pharmaceutical: Ipsen …Real Results

38 Management Consulting– IT Group Operations Change Log Document changes to hardware, network and software configuration Provide further update and annotation Discuss where necessary Updated as appropriate A simple, successful use-case which has lasted over 1.5 years by now

53 Enterprise Considerations

54 Support Not Optional Emergencies Happen Integration Issues Arise Development May Be Needed A Call Can Be Worth $1000s

55 Directory & Sign On Integration Not Optional Not a Checkbox –Directory Integration Active Directory (users, groups, profiles) LDAP (users, groups, profiles) Hybrid (more than 1 of the above) –Single Sign On NTLM SiteMinder –All Directories Are Different some work “out of the box” some don’t, see slide on Support

56 Installation & Platform Server Platform Requirements –Hardware –OS –Database –Web Server Cost to Own –Installation –Management –Upgrades Understanding Enterprise Architecture Conflict –The Question: “Does it run on Oracle?” –Often Means: “We do not allow Microsoft SQL Server DB.”

57 Enterprise 2.0 Info Flow RSS/ATOM Feeds –Authenticated? Secure? Dynamic? Deep? Search Interfaces –Search Skin? Search Federation? Search Integration? Web Services –SOAP? XML-RPC? Notification –RSS? E-Mail? E-Mail Newsletter? IM? –Flexibility Widgets and Mashups –On the fly content inclusion (e.g. user profile from HR)? –And linking (e.g. invoice numbers to ERP)?

58 Enterprise Blogs The web is organized by names and direct links. Time Topic Importance Enterprise Blogs add: Time  What’s happening now? Topic  Indirect links and collections of indirect links, across spaces Importance  human scalability –Driven by indication and inference Dynamic views (by any vector) Permission Overall: a link rich environment for communication, collaboration, and connection to other CM resources Permission filtered views

59 The role of Email Email is a channel –Not for Carbon Copy Collaboration On ramp for Communication Off ramp for Notification RSS client One tool of many Enterprise Blog Send Message Now E-Mail Exit 15 Minutes
