Organizations without a 2.0 strategy risk failure

    TORONTO, June 30 /CNW/ - An organization without a 2.0 strategy risks
being left behind, or outright failure (though death may be slow)," says Toby
Ward, CEO of Prescient Digital Media's <a href="">Intranet 2.0 Global Survey</a>. "Employees
want to work for progressive and innovative organizations, and expect 2.0
environments from employers of choice."
    561 organizations of all sizes from across the planet participated in the
<a href="">Intranet 2.0 Global Survey</a> and the results reveal rapid adoption of social
media on the corporate intranet in the past year.
    "Once a nice-to-have or a future wish, Intranet 2.0 tools such as blogs
and wikis have become mainstream, and are present in nearly 50% of
organizations in the Western World," says Ward.
    Intranet blogs, wikis & discussion forums are quite pervasive in many

    -   47% have intranet wikis (17% enterprise deployment); 10% have no
        plans or interest
    -   45% have intranet blogs (13% enterprise deployment); 11% have no
        plans or interest
    -   46% have intranet discussion forums (19% enterprise use); 9% have no
        plans or interest

    For those organizations that have deployed 2.0 tools on the intranet,
about 48% of organizations use Microsoft SharePoint, which dominates all
technology platforms.
    Intranet 2.0 is cheap. Of those organizations that have implemented 2.0
tools, almost half (46%) have spent $10,000 or less on these tools; 35% have
spent between $10,000 and $100,000; 19% have spent $100,000 or more.
