Here's a new tool that can help to bridge the business-IT divide -- Executable English.
It's a platform on the Web that can support people socially writing their own apps, by typing Executable English knowledge into browsers.
For example, here's the "source code" of an app written in executable English:
Anyone on the web can view and run the app by pointing a browser to the site. They can also edit the app, Wikipedia style (but without those severe human editors). And of course, you can also write and run new apps.
Since the apps are written in English, they are findable via Google. For example, searching Google for
for some-country in some-year debt
finds the app mentioned above.
Shared use of the platform is free, by pointing a browser to www.reengineeringllc.com , and there are no advertisements.
