I’m going to be giving a presentation on enterprise virtual worlds at the E3 conference (portals, collaboration, web), which is taking place May 19-22 in San Diego. If you’re going to be there let me know and we can meet up. Also, I’m passing along a discount code I got as a speaker. If you use the speaker code SPKRM2091CR you get a 20% discount.
Here’s what I’ll be talking about:
Enterprise Virtual Worlds
Virtual Worlds like Second Life have been getting a lot of attention in the past year, in articles that range from childlike wonder to curmudgeon-like dismissal of it as a game with no real value. But somewhere between these extremes is emerging a more measured view of what enterprise virtual worlds are and what they can actually do for businesses, both externally for customer outreach and internally for employee and partner collaboration. In this session, Craig Roth, Burton Group Senior Analyst and Vice President, will discuss:
- What counts as a virtual world when the word “virtual” can mean virtually anything?
- What can virtual worlds do for businesses and organizations?
- What are the benefits and pitfalls of using an enterprise virtual world?
- What other options are there to Second Life?
