The Last Podcast Opinionated Web 2.0 News and Commentary

SuiteTwo Web 2.0 Integrated Business Suite Announced

SuiteTwo is a collaboration between Intel, Six Apart, SocialText, NewsGator, SimpleFeed, SpikeSource and Intel, aimed squarly at the enterprise space. Blogs, Wikis, RSS – all in one neat package with the scalability needed for an enterprise.

Looks like it is meant to run on a ReadHat or Novell linux server. The software will be available through Intel’s distribution network. For the next version, according to Heise, the integration of new functions including podcasting is planned.

To me, it also seems this is aimed directly at Google. All the companies involved, besides Intel itself, have seen some direct inroads into their market by Google, especially after the acquisiton of JotSpot last week, the update/re-release of GoogleReader and Google’s Blogger service. For an enterprise, the fact that this is a solution that can be hosted internally behind the firewall must be a definite plus compared to a solution hosted by Google.
