    Mike, this looks interesting but I’m a bit confused by your iterations hee. When you put "Web 2.0" under "consumer" and "SOA" under "enterprise", are you saying that Web 2.0 technologies and concepts have no place in the enterprise? Likewise, for SaaS? (If so, what about 😉

    Maybe I’m reading too much into this. When you use the labels "consumer" and "enterprise" are you referring to customer segments for the IT industry, or something else?

    I guess what I’m saying is that some narrative would help me figure out what you’re getting at… 🙂

    Yup, you are right and it could do with narrative, Its more a stream of conciousness thing. Yes, you are reading a bit too much into it which is why I put marketecture as the description next to the slides. Basically I am lumping the names we have into the areas they are used in in general today as a taxonomy rather than being very exact about it or doing any forecasting. So typically most saas and web 2.0 are in the consumer space today, there are clearly exceptions like salesforce and I am not saying where they will end up although I do belive that there is an "Enterprise 2.0" going to happen.
