Management Information Systems is what Enterprise 2.0 is all about. Management Information Systems main objective is to produce managers who have good understanding of IT and its benefits to the Enterprise. At any business there is always a conflict between the business department and the IT department, the IT people don’t seem to understand the needs of the business department and the business department can not understand the limitation or the complexity of the IT solutions.
If you search the web, you would find many definitions for “Enterprise 2.0”, but the simplest and most focused definition I found was at: http://www.thecontenteconomy.com/2007/10/enterprise-20-and-shrinking-it.html
As businesses really more and more on technology to conduct their daily activities, managers will have a greater responsibility of understanding various IT solutions available to the company. As the article on the above link suggests, the need for people who combine business skills with deep understanding of IT will increase.
