It’s no secret that I’m a big supporter of bringing web 2.0 ideas into the corporate world. There is certainly something to be said about these technologies that are being born out of the second generation of successful websites.

The reason I’m posting on web 2.0 is because the value of its principles and technologies can really improve projects and programs at your organization. I’ve talked about how it would really be great to incorporate your metadata into a wiki so that it would be easier to keep up to date, and I also think the the portal and collaboration tools would help with keeping people involved (instead of just a once a week meeting).

In addition, I imagine you won’t be surprised to learn that I have a Data Governance blog on the intranet for our organization. This keeps council members up to date with the day-to-day activities of the Data Gov Office. The feedback from that has been great.


I encourage you to think over the next week or two how you can use your intranet and collaboration technologies, such as Sharepoint, to really turbo charge your Data Governance Program.
