Web und Intranet er?ffnen v?llig neue Perspektiven in der Informationsverarbeitung. Bereiche, in denen die Gestaltung der Au?enbeziehungen eine hohe strategische Bedeutung hat, stehen vor der Herausforderung, sich mit den neuen Techniken des net zu besch?ftigen. Auch wenn die kurzfristigen wirtschaftlichen Erfolge meist noch nicht unmittelbar in monet?ren Gr??en bewertet werden k?nnen, droht bei Ignorieren dieser Technologien sowohl ein Imageverlust als auch ein Planungsr?ckstand gegen?ber der Konkurrenz. Die Erfolgspotentiale von digital enterprise k?nnen in den n?chsten Jahren nur dann realisiert werden, wenn strategische Konzepte und die daf?r notwendigen Lernprozesse - vom Topmanagement beginnend abw?rts - bereits heute eingeleitet werden. Wer diese strategische Weichenstellung vers?umt, "den bestraft die Geschichte".

By Astra Taylor
From a state of the art cultural commentator and documentary filmmaker, a daring and remarkable problem to adored notions of the net because the nice democratizing strength of our age.
The net has been hailed as a spot the place all will be heard and everybody can take part both. yet how actual is that this declare? In a seminal dismantling of techno-utopian visions, The People's Platform argues that for all that we "tweet" and "like" and "share," the net in truth displays and amplifies real-world inequities not less than up to it ameliorates them. on-line, simply as off-line, recognition and effect principally accrue to those that have already got lots of either. What we've seen within the digital international up to now, Astra Taylor says, has been now not a revolution yet a rearrangement. even though Silicon Valley tycoons have eclipsed Hollywood moguls, a handful of giants like Amazon, Apple, Google and fb nonetheless dominate our lives. And the worst conduct of the outdated media model--the strain to be fast and sensational, to hunt effortless big name, to attract the broadest attainable public--have proliferated on-line, the place each click on should be measured and the place "aggregating" the paintings of others is the optimal option to allure eyeballs and advert profit. In a global the place tradition is "free," inventive paintings has diminishing worth, and advertisements fuels the approach, the hot order appears suspiciously like the previous one.
We can do greater, Taylor insists. the web global does provide an extraordinary chance, yet a democratic tradition that helps varied voices, paintings of lasting price, and equitable enterprise practices won't seem by reason of know-how by myself. If we need the web to actually be a people's platform, we'll need to make it so.
