The Office 2.0 Conference is coming up next week, taking place from September 3-5 at San Francisco's St Regis Hotel. Ismael Ghalimi coined the phrase "Office 2.0" a few years back and is the producer of the conference. I went last year and heard some great speakers. So I am eager to attend this year's event and have already perused the agenda to map out some of the most interesting sessions.What exactly is Office 2.0? I tend to think of it as productivity or "office" tools that are delivered as web applications. Office 2.0 represents a growing trend towards using the web as a platform for applications rather than client-based or client/server-based applications. It's amazing how far web-based tools have come but questions still remain as to their adoption in the enterprise. This has been a big topic at our own Enterprise 2.0 Conference as well.My top Office 2.0 sessions:Making Office 2.0 Mobile PanelFriday, September 5, 2008, 9:00AM to 9:45AMCloud Computing InfrastructureFriday, September 5, 2008, 1:30PM to 2:15PMThe Changing Face of the Enterprise Adoption in the Real Business WorldFriday, September 5, 2008, 10:45AM to 11:30AMReal World Collaboration StrategyThursday, September 4, 2008, 4:15PM to 5:00PMGoing 100% SaaSFriday, September 5, 2008, 9:45AM to 10:30AMGE Case StudyThursday, September 4, 2008, 10:45AM to 11:30AMSee you at the Office 2.0 Conference!
