Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and Google Wave Featured in Enterprise 2.0 Keynote Line-Up

In case you missed it, last week we announced an impressive keynote line-up for the Enterprise 2.o Conference in San Francisco. I'd like to briefly touch on the keynotes from Microsoft SharePoint and Google Wave because there's been so much talk about their potential to disrupt the market.christian_finn2 Christian Finn, Director of SharePoint Product Management, MicrosoftWhy is this a big deal? Well because the SharePoint team at Microsoft will be digging into SharePoint 2010. 2010 has been referred to as a "day of reckoning for the enterprise 2.0 vendors" because many third-party products have come into existence due to shortcomings in past SharePoint offerings. Of course the big questions to be asked are:1. Is 2010 finally "good enough"?2. How will it affect smaller vendors and Microsoft partners in the market?3. What impact will 2010 have on the nascent Enterprise 2.0 market overall?greg_smallGregory D'alesandre, Product Manager, Google WaveHow much do you know about Google Wave? There has been a lot of speculation about what Wave is, why it's important and how it's going to disrupt communications and collaboration as we know it. After all, Wave has been developed by the same team of brothers who developed Google Maps years ago. So far the Wave Team have only made the software available to a small group of developers but later this month the they roll out a "Preview" version available for early pilots.Does Google Wave have a strong play in the Enterprise? You'll need to come to the Conference to see firsthand what all the hype has been about and judge for yourself.
