As a spoiler, the bottom line of my presentation is that we're not even using 10% of what the web technologies have to offer us. Slowly we are getting there, but too slow in my opinion. For some weird behavioral law, the larger the organization the less innovation gets done (some pointers).
Anyway, I only had 20 minutes, and in that time you cannot do justice to the web technologies.
