Running a business on Web-based software

Posted by Dion Hinchcliffe @ 1:26 pm

Digg This! One premise of Enterprise Web 2.0 is that Web-based software is beginning to credibly encroach on many solution areas that traditional software previously addressed.  According to proponents, this maturing method of online software delivery provides more usability, convenience, and value.  The flexibility, mobility, and sheer connectedness of Web software is indeed increasingly hard to ignore.  And many of us, consciously or not, are doing more and more of our daily work in the browser, either using applications hosted on the Web, or inside our organizations using Web technology.

Enterprise Web 2.0 SpectrumAlong with all this, the people-powered aspects of Web 2.0 software are causing software developers to add features to their online software to make the pieces (services and data) more open and sharable, draw folks into lively and useful communities, or just provide simpler, better capabilities (adding tagging or providing an Ajax GUI, for example).  This, coupled with all the new innovative software online, in turn is spurring serious interest from early adopters in the business community.

There’s been a lot of talk in the last couple of weeks about this trend, and how pronounced it really is, though some folks like Union Square Venture’s Fred Wilson seem pretty sure it’s happening, and even cites his firm’s own experiences.  (My take: It is indeed happening and has barely started.)  He notes that enterprise technologies used to begin their life in the enterprise and then make their way eventually to the consumer space.  He asserts that this process has reversed now that innovation is happening so rapidly in the online consumer space, further driven by the increasing shift of control from organizations to the individuals (see my take on Social Computing for a quick exploration of this.)

Social vs. Technical Aspects of Enterprise Web 2.0

The tenets of Web 2.0 can be exhibited in a variety of ways that range across a spectrum with social aspects at one end to primarily technical ones at the other (see diagram left).  Web 2.0 software for the enterprise can effectively demonstrate aspects across part of this range, most of it, or just a snippet of it.  But the generally idea is that Web 2.0 software is online, open, made of pieces, encourages constructive social interaction, and is driven sightly more by its users and data than specific features.  Wikis are a great example of this latter concept; their biggest two features are the edit and save buttons, with the data and people gathering there being far more important.

Examples of Web 2.0 Software in the Enterprise

Nothing however, speaks stronger to an idea than pointing out examples, and that’s where I’m referencing some recent work in this area by Jeff Nolan of SAP’s Apollo Strategy group.  He has recently begun assembling a rather impressive list of enterprise-usable Web 2.0 software.  I asked Jeff what his goals and motiviations were for assembling this list, and he kindly responded with the following (with advance apologies to fellow ZDNetter Phil Wainewright’s own definition of Web 3.0):

I leveraged the term ‘Web 2.0 in the enterprise’ into ‘Web 3.0′ with the idea that most of the existing Web 2.0 software wouldn’t make it into the enterprise because of security, feature/function, or platform issues, and needless to say, integration. However, having said all that it is clear that what the major enterprise vendors have been working on for several years is what you could call the precursor to Web 2.0 in the enterprise, which is a notion of a services-based backend system.

I started out creating lists of interesting companies that I was tracking, with an emphasis on ‘enterprisey’ stuff and quickly realized that it was not practical to draw a line of demarcation between one and the other (consumer vs. enterprise). I recalled my days in SAP Ventures when we drew an investment thesis around the notion of a blurring of the line between enterprise and consumer grade applications and services.

Thus, I started tracking all of the companies and links I could find that would be representative of Web 2.0, enterprise or not.

The result of Jeff’s work is a pretty extensive (and inevitably incomplete) list hosted on a wiki that any registered user can edit.  This directory contains some of the more recognizable poster children of Web 2.0 including BaseCamp, del.icio.us, edgeio, Zillow, and many others organized into functional categories such as collaboration, messaging, infrastructure, etc.

But the list also goes onto enumerate many Web services that often deliberately appeal more to enterprise audiences than to consumers.  This includes sites such as JotSpot, Eurekster, and others.  And certainly, lists of Web 2.0 software now swirl around the Internet practically beyond count (yes, mine are here, here, and here), this is the first one that I am aware of that focuses primarily on the Web 2.0 in the enterprise space, though please, if you know of one, please put it in Talkbalk below.

Here’s a list using Jeff’s a primary point of departure (with his permission).  In the interests of fairness, if you think something is missing please add your own Enterprise Web 2.0 software in Talkbalk and I’ll reissue it at some point with all additions that make sense.

Surfwax has powerful search features, something
they call “targeted, multi-source (federated)
searching”, they somehow use XFN to relate focus
groups through “site snaps”. Very advanced stuff,
I’m still discovering how to use it, but the
effort is worth it. They also have a bookmarking
service called Nextaris that handles links,
clippings and images. You can combine all those,
with user input, in blogs which are part of your
directory structure. It really is awesome and I
don’t know why more people are aware of it, maybe
it’s too complex. Anyways, its worth a look-see.

gOffice has a presentation feature for spiffing up

I love 24eyes, an
“RSS Dashboard”. You can create unlimited tabbed
pages each with unlimited feed windows. You can
import your feed OPML and make windows off of
that. You can search for other peoples RSS pages
and import them. Very web2.0’ish, the feed item
fetching is lighting fast, this is my fave RSS

TagTooga.com is a Wiki web directory (sort of like
DMOZ meets Wikipedia) except anybody can create
category/tags and edit entries. An interesting
feature is that you can create your own page in
TagTooga to hold links, and then use the HTML Feed
feature to display those links live on your blog
or site. So… the updating and maintenance of
the links on THIS page could be automated by using
TagTooga HTML feeds. See
http://www.tagtooga.com/tapp/db.exe?c=htmlfeeds

Also, HTML snapshot feeds can be created.

What about Rally Point (not the word processor the
HOA manager). http://rallypoint.wbpsystems.com. I
use the free account to manage my families chore
list, drop messages for each, upload files etc.
Though it is actually designed for Home Owner
associations.

Biochemistry November 10, 2006

                                              Biochemistry, 5th Edition, 2002-02

ISBN: 0716746840 |Title: Biochemistry, 5th Edition,
2002-02| Author: Jeremy M. Berg, John L. Tymoczko, Lubert Stryer
|Publisher: W. H. Freeman| pages: 1100| PDF 26.18 MB

Reviewer:

This is a superb book to understand the excitement in biochemistry and
to understand its relevance to human health. Stryer’s book presents
biochemistry in a completely different manner. Instead of traditionally
presenting one topic after the other, it presents each chapter giving a
representative molecule or system for explanation and characterization
of the material in that chapter . For example, heamoglobin and
myoglobin for explaining the three dimensional structure of proteins,
lysozyme and chymotrypsin for explaining enzyme action, and a host of
others. Each example is critically chosen, considering its role and
function in life and metabolism. This makes the matter very interesting
and practical. Paralleling this are given descriptions of diseases and
biochemical disorders as well as historical perspectives. The last
part, molecular physiology, gives a lucid exposition of the fundamental
biochemical processes in living organisms. In fact, the whole point of
view in the book is a physiological one. The book is unlike Lehninger,
which is essentially a traditional textbook. Even though Lehninger is
great as an introductory book, Stryer is, in my opinion, the book to
read if you want to learn biochemistry as a discipline which should be
viewed as an exciting excursion into human metabolism and life.

Review of new edition (Berg, Tymockzo):

I had written a favourable review earlier for a previous edition of
Stryer. I rest my case for the latest edition too. Jeremy Berg and John
Tymoczko, both accomplished authors, join Lubert Stryer in producing
this time tested and comprehensive book. If you are someone like me,
who believes that enzymes and proteins are the key to understanding the
mysteries of life, then this book is for you. While it may not have as
much coverage of nucleic acid chemistry biochemistry as some of the
other books, I believe that the next revolution in biology is going to
hinge upon our understanding of SYSTEMS. And while an understanding of
genes is crucial as enabling knowledge, if you really consider all the
actual action that happens in biochemical systems, almost all of it is
mediated by enzymes and receptors. Stryer’s new edition has literally
hundreds of pictures and discussions of proteins and enzymes which
explain the structure and function of these magnificent biological
agents. The book has still retained the concise and yet comprehensive
style which made its previous edition so good. Again, the book strikes
a good balance between textbook and medical biochemistry, which is its
great strength. Small boxes and side discussions throw light on the
most interesting events connected with drug metabolism and disease. As
a side point, the discussions about nucleic acid biology which the
authors HAVE included are pretty good in themselves. Biochemistry is
one of the most exciting branches of scientific research. This is
because first of all it is highly interdisciplinary, enjoying a
wonderful synergy with organic and inorganic chemistry, physical
chemistry and physics, and of course, biology. Secondly, Biochemistry
is an extraordinarily dynamic subject and biochemical knowledge doubles
every five years. Discoveries in biochemistry directly affect medical
science. In the 21st century, it continues to promise us radical
understanding into the working of life, and any good biochemistry book
should ideally convey this excitement to the reader. This one does. The
bottom line is, if you want to get excited about the miracle that is
called life, and want to do it in a rational way, Stryer is still one
of the very best. I hope it continues to be so.

Biology, 6th edition

Peter H Raven, George B Johnson
Biology, 6th edition
McGraw-Hill | ISBN 0073031208 | 2001 | PDF | 1239 pages | 52.0 MB

BIOLOGY is an authoritative majors textbook with evolution as a
unifying theme. In revising the text, McGraw-Hill has consulted
extensively with previous users, noted experts and professors in the
field. It is distinguished from other texts by its strong emphasis on
natural selection and the evolutionary process that explains
biodiversity.

Five considerations influenced this revision. They are: 1) Focus on
concepts; 2) Reinforcing Ideas; 3) Emphasizing relevance to students;
4) Keeping up with new developments; and 5) Careful editing.
