Whether you call this "enterprise 2.0" or "portal 2.0" will be irrelevant to a lot of people for whom an all encompassing and integrated technology architecture is important. Reminds me of how ERP systems were marketed during the last century, too.

I would agree that to some, not all, the framing will be unimportant - but clearly it is to Oracle and how they are positioning the catch-phrase as part of its go-to-market and sales efforts.

That said - the "all encompassing and integrated technology architecture" is a point of debate as well - the modularity, loose coupling, extensibility,and platform ecosystem that allows be to replace components with third parties is not yet demonstrated in the market by Oracle who has consistently failed in the collaboration space to-date and is completely unproven in the social computing space. They have had success in the ECM area.

I also wonder about the cycle times between releases with such large platforms that try to be all-in-one. We are already seeing SharePoint consistently rev on a 3 year cycle and when it does rev, it is behind the current curve. Is this notion of tightly integrated super platforms a thing of the past?

Thanks - good point.

In response to your last question: I think the answer is "yes."
