by Impact Wire Thursday, February 19, 2009
Starting in 2008 and followed by the economic downturn, the way companies are thinking about their daily business has changed. In response to the current recession in Europe, businesses are seeking new ways to maintain their productivity while significantly cutting costs. Therefore, they have started looking at Web 2.0 solutions to help do that job. The business owners are taking advantage of what Web 2.0 has to offer by utilizing lower-cost versions of enterprise applications, cloud computing, as well as benefit from 'crowdsourcing'.

Frost & Sullivan will host a live briefing open to all on Thursday, 26 February at 14.00 GMT to provide industry participants with an overview of Web 2.0 solutions and trends in Europe.

Highlights of the briefing include analyses of Web 2.0 trends in Europe, drivers and restraints, as well as Web 2.0 solutions for Small Medium Businesses (SMBs).

This briefing will benefit Web 2.0 companies, service providers, network operators, and telcos by discussing trends and solutions for the recession-hit in Europe.

"Web 2.0 solution may be part of the cure for the recessionary headache that many European businesses are now experiencing. Social networking, wikis and blogs are just some of the more well-known examples of Web 2.0 technologies that can play an important role here. A number of technology vendors are offering now Web 2.0 technologies. They have updated their platforms and addressed IT managers' concerns, such as scalability, control, reliability, and most importantly - security," observes Iwona Petruczynik, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan Information & Communication Technologies group.
