The Gilbane Report have been running an ongoing survey on the use of Blogs, Wikis and RSS in the enterprise. When I last looked they only had 67 responses, so I'm not sure if the data holds much weight but some of the comments, such as, "My IT staff doesn't bother with new ideas", are quite revealing about who is driving the adoption of this technology.
In their blog entry they provide the following commentary:
- Although most respondents are using one of the technologies, only half of them have official IT support.
- Knowledge management, internal information dissemination (portals!?), and project collaboration are all closely grouped as the leading applications.
- Shockingly, only a third use RSS!*
- Almost a third are using one or more of these for content management.
