New technologies take enterprise collaboration to the next level
Sponsored by SearchContentManagement
Businesses that hope to collaborate effectively in today’s marketplace have a host of issues to contend with -- trust issues with the cloud (yes, still) and an ever-widening workforce among them. So the ways in which organizations collaborate must evolve. No longer can they count on face-to-face interaction to foster business innovation. Scattered workforces and closely guarded business assets can impede the community-aspect of business collaboration. To remain competitive, organizations are looking to technology to keep enterprise collaboration rolling.
This three-part guide examines what organizations can do to foster that collaboration and improve on the ideation process. First, Lauren Horwitz, an executive editor in the Business Applications & Architecture Media Group, explains how cloud-based applications -- Dropbox, Skydrive and Google Drive, for example -- are enabling simple, secure file-sharing in organizations around the world. Horwitz is joined by Laura Aberle, SearchContentManagement site editor, in the second piece. Together, they describe how, for some organizations, file-sharing isn’t enough. These companies, aiming to take collaboration further, are bringing together external and internal employees -- and in some cases, users -- to crowdsource ideas through collaboration-as-a-service applications. To close, consultant Shawn Shell discusses in more detail the trend of crowdsourced collaboration -- specifically, the challenges wrought by connecting global, mobile and external collaborators.
