While so many terms have ’2.0’ suffixed after them today, Mobile 2.0 can be defined simply as: Next generation access (network) and Next generation data services which are possible due to the evolution of the network

The core telecoms network is being transformed through technologies like IMS, WiFi, Wimax, VOIP and others. As the mobile network evolves, it is aligning itself with the Internet i.e. becoming Open. Intelligence is also shifting to applications i.e. edge of network and we are seeing the dawn of entirely new services which were not possible even a few years ago.

This session discusses Mobile 2.0 i.e. the evolution of the network and the consequent emerging applications.

Architecture for Humanity (AFH) is an online community that actively embraces the tenets of open source to generate innovative and sustainable designs that improve living standards. Sun built a solution based on Solaris 10, Apache Web server, MySQL database, and PHP (SAMP), that allows architects and community leaders to download and upload copyright-free designs, building plans and blueprints, and case studies of successful projects. This open, collaborative forum is helping AFH reach out to its community—comprised mainly of designers, builders, architects, donors, and volunteers—to improve living conditions for those in need across the world, and the rebuilding of communities affected by disasters like the South Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina.

The user experience is more critical today with the emergence of Web 2.0 during the past few years. Today wikis, blogs, and widgets are a part of the daily nomenclature in the work environment, but there are many questions around how this Web 2.0 world moves into the Enterprise world.

How do software vendors bring the best features and functionalities to the masses?
Are these companies spending their R&D on bringing to market small applications that focus on one task or are they focused on improving their core applications, or is both possible?
Do Web 2.0 apps have enough speed, security, and stability for the Fortune 500 CIOs and thousands of employees around the world?

This panel will provide color commentary about the Web and Enterprise 2.0 worlds and what is ready for prime time.
