Hugh M. Pattinson, David R. Low

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Current new and next generation e-novation collaborative platforms are explored through a "Day-In-The- Life-Of" scenario in 2020 based on key semantic concepts drawn from chapters within the E-Novation book. Key themes for an emerging e-novation collaborative platform include: triple convergence (before and after), Web 3.0/4.0 - the Web is a brain, redefined collaborative communication, virtual/augmented reality, service-dominant logic (SDL), marketing and innovation, open-source creation, development and distribution, digital branding, CRM redefined, complexity and SMEs, e-novation office, e-novation curriculum, social graphing e-novation, and sustainability platforms and innovation. These themes are discussed both in relation to the current new collaborative platform and how they may develop from 2010-2020. E-novation will be the innovation and marketing social and business service.
