KPMG is to publish a series of three reports of the impact of Enterprise 2.0 business and what sectors are currently leading the way in take up. Crispin O’Brien, head of technology at KPMG, said: ‘While Enterprise 2.0 clearly has the potential to improve business efficiency, communication and encourage innovation and problem solving, there are concerns over security, confidentiality and in some countries cultural and legal issues. companies need to be alert to the dangers that free comment made in wikis and blogs may be libelous or infringe employee rights laws.’
Step in a new company called Techrigy who are launching products to help organisations monitor what their employees are saying within and outside the company on blogs and wikis. SM2 has two pieces – a hosted service for blogs that will integrate with blog search engines Technorati, Blogdigger, and Google BLog Search to find out if a company’s employees are blogging and where and what they write, and also an internal technology that finds and parses internal blogs and wikis, to ensure employees are not saying anything they shouldn’t be.
Meanwhile, Harvard Business School’s Professor Andrew McAfee is trying to set up an enterprise 2.0 case studies site. If you have any examples, he is on the look out for them. The site, which will be at cases2.com, has been donated by Socialtext
