One of my favorite thought leaders, Don Tapscott has a short video of a vision for our digital future.
Leading Digital is a remarkable book that I’m half way through. I’ll write more about this amazing work in the future, but wanted to share a video from one of the authors outlining the key messages.
Enterprise 2.0 is well known throughout the E20 evangelists, yet as I wrote on my old blog, the term Enterprise 2.0 has jumped the shark.
Web 2.0 migrated to Social Media, and leveraging the term, Social Business was adopted. Executives, in my opinion aren’t receptive to those advocating a Social Business strategy as they associate it with social efforts for Marketing and Public Affairs (Gov’t) to develop Facebook pages, Twitter, and now G+. Wikipedia’s Social Business page is about a business with a social objective, and points you back to Social Media for organizations designed around social tools and networks. While Social Business outpaces Digital Business by 4:1 on Google Trends, the main SB post is on Zuckerburg’s draft strategy for Facebook.
Digital Business I believe has a strong brand that captures the key tenets of Enterprise 2.0 and Social Business by leveraging web-based tools to collaborate across the Enterprise.
MIT has the Center for Digital Business as a “research partnership with industry to provide leadership for faculty, students, and sponsors interested in Internet-enabled business”.
So what do you think? Digital Business.
