Five minutes after I posted my Google Wave analysis, I ran into Dion Hinchcliffe’s excellent analysis of Google Wave. A must read for Enterprise 2.0 folks.
This is exactly what I’m envisioning happening with Google Wave in the enterprise. It will become the “glue code” for the user experience. It won’t replace existing back-end apps, but provide a much cleaner, nicer, and more productive interface for interacting with them. The biggest problem most enterprise apps pose is the lack of focus on the user experience. Google Wave provides a framework for improving that experience.
