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!
5 Top Federal Initiatives For 2015As InformationWeek Government readers were busy firming up their fiscal year 2015 budgets, we asked them to rate more than 30 IT initiatives in terms of importance and current leadership focus. No surprise, among more than 30 options, security is No. 1. After that, things get less predictable.
