Enterprise Second Life

It’s about time IBM announced it would develop Second Life capabilities in a corporate setting. This article in Information Age goes into detail about their new enterprise-ready launch. IBM will release several beta versions before deciding to offer this solution to the enterprise.

IBM must realize that Second Life within organizations are used for different purposes, specifically as a collaboration tool between teams and for teleconferencing. Other distinct attributes that IBM must not overlook are security settings, since this solution will come into contact with IT.

The mere fact that IBM is hosting this service shows us that we are constantly aiming to seek new ways to share information within organizations. When will Microsoft release a similar enterprise solution? How long will it take the corporate world to adopt this technology?
