Reflecting on Andrew McAfee's article on the

I recently had the chance to read HBS Professor Andrew McAfee's blog entry on the trends underlying what people are talking about in terms of Enterprise 2.0, and emerging change sin the corporate IT landscape. I think he is pretty much right on the money.

He calls out three key themes "Simple, Free Platforms for Self-Expression", "Emergent Structures, Rather than Imposed Ones", and "Order from Chaos" - which very much are similar to the themes I think are behind Business Intelligence 2.0. Classic IT has been all about imposing Command and Control structures through good governance, and now we can build upon that good governance to enable similar freedom of expression (within boundaries of good governance!) of YouTubeand Facebook in Business Intelligence 2.0.

Read Andrew's article, very good!
