Let’s say you want to increase accuracy. Well a technology developed by a guy associated with the open source movement may help you to do so (e.g., by 80%). Cutting down on passing files around, maintaining a means of sharing, maintaining version control and a single reference point for data, Socialcalc enables users to embed spreadsheets into Socialtext’s wiki pages. In an interview on the future the CEO of Socialtext basically shares that doing a project collaboratively actually dramatically increases productivity and reduces email traffic. A few words from the related article on Internet Evolution that may get you thinking include: “When you look at social networking, if it’s done with a goal of actually solving a problem, then it’s less about who knows who and more about who knows what and who knows who knows what.”; “encourage customers to not categorize things by marketing buzzwords but categorize them by their goals and problems they’re trying to solve”; “help groups be more productive in the context of what they have”; “the patterns of ubiquity of technology, the long tail of specificity, those will continue to accelerate”; “the next wave is, how do you make it relevant”.

All must increasingly work towards means to innately improve quality and value, and thereby in the process increase such things as integration, productivity, excellence and simplicity. By 2020 this will ideally increasingly apply to all aspects of IT Governance, a global IT profession, and improvements to quality of life for all.
