the social context of information

In his post of 29 April, Enterprise 2.0 is not Web 2.0 nor is it an Oxymoron, Bill Ives writes clearly on the differences as he sees them between web 2.0 and enterprise 2.0.  The key section is:’…the existence of an emerging class of business software that does not simply take consumer web tools behind the firewall. These tools are developed for businesses to solve business problems. Businesses are run and operated by people, for the most part for now, and these tools look at the social context of information. There are many communities within an enterprise: project teams, divisions, etc. Then there are the communities that enterprises want to have with their suppliers and customers.’
