Ray Wang – Enterprise class software follows five assets

The notion of the software being freeze is not going to change. I don’t think it’s gonna change the quality of the apps that are available, and we are to take the consumer innovations and make them enterprise class. And enterprise class follows five assets. We have five assets of enterprise class that we talk about.

And the first one is scalable, and definitely we have to build the scale up and down on a regular basis. The second one is simple; enterprise apps typically are not simple applications to use. And so we’ve got to get to deliver simplicity that you can use on a device. Then the next three of premium importance. It has to be safe. When it’s safe, it means you can take that to another system and it works and plays well with each other, and then of course it has to be secure. We have to be able to deal with the security and the privacy of that information.

And the more importantly, is sustainable. Not green, not fluffy, I’m talking about sustainable that I can build on a platform at least for five to seven years. And extend it, and build it, and continue to invest in that platform. So we take a task, when we look at the consumer technologies that are very promising, that seem to be easy to use, we have to figure out the enterprise class. Right? Inside an organization, otherwise it’s not going to help you.

We're just at the beginning. I think we are missing a lot of things. I mean what we are trying to accomplish is a category of applications I'm calling 'engagement applications', and these engagement applications have to be able to deliver information in right time, not real time but right time, based on context, like location or context such as semantic, or context such as the relationship you're in. Right, because afterwards if you want to get more technical.. I[...]

Ray Wang - We are not very good at filtering information

I think a lot of the issues when we filter information are we don't do a good job at filtering information. It's… You take activity streams for example, on a twitter or facebook wall.
