Web 2.0 is the term given to describe a second generation of the World Wide Web that is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online.
Web 2.0 basically refers to the transition from static HTML Web pages to a more dynamic Web that is more organized and is based on serving Web applications to users.
Other improved functionality of Web 2.0 includes open communication with an emphasis on Web-based communities of users, and more open sharing of information.
Over time Web 2.0 has been used more as a marketing term than a computer-science-based term. Blogs, wikis, and Web services are all seen as components of Web 2.0.
The key principles to describe this type of web are :
- Web as platform
- Harnessing collective intelligence
- Data is the next Intel Inside
- End of the software release cycle
- Lightweight programming models.
Therefore Web 2.0 represents an important step in the evolution of Internet-based tools, and in the years ahead, it’s likely to have a major impact on the way information is managed and distributed within your company.
