State of Enterprise 2.0 Adoption Q4 2009

Picture 1This paper and the research behind it are based on a survey conducted during the latter part of October 2009. The survey was open exclusively to members of The 2.0 Adoption Council.

Of the then 100 members, 77 completed the survey. As explained in more detail in the Demographics section, despite the relatively small number of responses, the research findings represent a market milestone and represent not the opinion of the general masses, but the fact-based experiences of the market’s early adopters– the true practitioners of Enterprise 2.0.

This study focused on the current realities pertaining to the adoption of Enterprise 2.0 and associated budgets, challenges, business drivers, teams and leadership.  The survey consisted of over 20 questions. This white paper provides a high-level view into a select sub-group of questions/issues.

This report was partially underwritten by Enterprise 2.0 and Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution provider, OpenText.  This funding enabled Information Architected and The 2.0 Adoption Council to offer it free of charge to the Enterprise 2.0 community.
