Podcast: Jim Till on Enabling Secure Web 2.0 Collaboration in the Enterprise

Nov 02, 2007

EContent magazine editor Michelle Manafy discusses the challenges organizations face when users turn to consumer based technologies to meet their desire for a Web 2.0 collaborative experience inside the enterprise with Jim Till, CMO of Xythos Software.

They have found these tools easy to use and have begun to demand similar usability and functionality at work. However, IT departments have been unable--or at least hesitant--to provide these tools. Here, we discuss the promise and problems raised by bringing the Web 2.0 experience inside the enterprise.
