People often ask me what is going to be the role of Social Software in the Enterprise. I often replies that doing business requires social interaction and thus it's obvious why Social Software needs a place in the Enterprise. This is a big opportunity for software vendors, but it also changes the competitive landscape, because the traditional Enterprise Software vendors might not necessary be the most innovative Social Software vendors.
Last week I run into an article 'The end of Software...' from Dennis Howlett. He does a much better job describing the situation and dynamics in the Enterprise that I can ever do.
Therefor I like to close as he does: we live in interesting times .
