I’ve written about the fact that many Web 2.0 applications out there in consumer land would be great in the Enterprise. Well, no sooner that those thoughts were published, I find that Worklight have or about to release a Facebook overlay for the Enterprise.
This is a big leap forward to adopting Web 2.0 within the enterprise. not wanting to go into the discussion of whether Facebook should be allowed from within the Enterprise, this product assumes that this is not an issue and looks to use Facebook as an Enterprise social network with all the security you would expect.
Secure sign-on into the application presents you with your corporate network in the same way you are presented with your private social network, but added to that, you are provided with corporate strength communications within the application. It uses the enterprise infrastructure within the application and outside the application it is raw Facebook.
