Tagging inside the Enterprise

I pined awhile back about using tagging inside the enterprise. I still think that for a lot of * 2.0 hype, this is potentially a big hit to dealing with the volumes of disconnected content that enterprises never seem interested in gardening cleanly from an enterprise information architecture standpoint.

Then I heard about Connectbeam through a comment on Sandy’s podcast for the Office 2.0 Podcast Jam. This is available as either a subscription service or an appliance for enabling tagging behind the firewall. Good enterprisey features include LDAP integration, which is a must for authorization, and commenting.

Not to take anything away from these good folks, but aren’t there frameworks available yet for tagging so that enterprises can at least start experimenting to build a business case? I haven’t started looking yet, but if anyone knows about Java-based tagging frameworks, I’m all ears…

    IBM has created their own internal social bookmarking system called “Dogear“; I’ve heard about it from a couple of people who I know within IBM. Sounds like a successful experiment internally, but no word yet on whether they plan to offer it as a product. Seems the logical choice.

    I hadn’t heard of Dogear, Sandy, thanks for mentioning that! Would be nice to see tools like that out in the open.
