In the AustralianIT section of The Australian newspaper, a story interviewing some large organisation in Australia about their use of Web 2.0 technologies:
"Accenture is using wikis and blogs both internally and to talk to clients. Executives as far up the command chain as the company's global chief operating officer use blogs to communicate with staff.
The practice is already having an impact on the use of voicemail in the company and it is also starting to supplant long established collaboration tools."
An analyst interviewed for the story also commented that:
- It will come down to a choice between web-based communications and vendor backed collaboration tools such as Microsoft's SharePoint suite.
- It will be at least another 18 months before wikis come into widespread use within corporate environments.
