Net-liberated Organization

A net-liberated organization (NLO) is a Gartner concept describing an organizational philosophy enabled by the advent of the Internet and related Web technologies. Rather than “bolting on” Web initiatives to mainstream operations (i.e., integrating the Internet into business processes, but leaving the structure of these processes intact), an NLO uses these technologies to liberate itself from the constraints of traditional business environments that focus on local and physical infrastructures.
The goal of an NLO is to transform the enterprise into one that is more agile, and thus better able to meet customer demands.
