The Internet has always been known as a way for individuals to retrieve information. Shane Pearson, VP of Marketing and Product Management for BEA, believes that the Internet is now a place for individuals to interact with information. He also believes that many of these ways can be used by enterprises and businesses to better run their organizations. He joins Phil and Scott to talk about how “people centric” interaction.
Shane gives a number of examples of social interaction tools used by the general public and discusses how these methods can be used in business. He also reviews how government agencies can particularly take advantage of these tools. He assesses how the organizations can adapt the tools for use. He discusses how security is an important part of this process.
He also talks about the upcoming Defrag Conference. A number of the speakers at the conference have appeared on Technometria. The sponsors describe the conference as “a gathering place for the growing community of implementers, users, builders and thinkers that are working on the next wave of software innovation.” Shane’s information clearly shows how the information to be presented at Defrag can be important for the future.
