Enterprise Collaboration: A Zoo of Tools - Current Strategies behind Enterprise Collaboration Platforms

Join this session and hear about the different approaches used by user organisations to develop their software portfolio for Enterprise Collaboration.
We are going to discuss the complex collaborative technology landscape in order to understand the evolving portfolios of collaboration software currently in use in organizations. This will include the examination of different areas of collaboration activity that these tools support and the areas of overlapping and redundant functionality. We will present findings from a study of 23 user organisations in which we identified three dominant strategies.
In this session, you will learn how the companies in our sample are addressing the zoo of software tools to shape their Enterprise Collaboration Platform.

Prof. Dr. Petra Schubert (Director of the Competence Centre for Collaboration Technologies (UCT) and is co-founder of IndustryConnect @University of Koblenz-Landau )
Sebastian Bahles (Researcher in the Business Application System Research Group @University of Koblenz-Landau)

  5. Let’s Connect O-N-L-I-N-E September 28 & 29, 2021 Key Findings

    from the Study 1. We need to build integrated platforms, they are not nice to have but essential, specialised little stand-alone tools for a single purpose are tempting but bad from an IT Management point of view 2. Enterprise Collaboration Systems are candidates for the core (provide uniform user directory and content APIs) 3. The Workspace is where the music plays, decisive for the software selection 4. Enterprise Platforms will be built with software services from Provider Platforms (maybe even multiple providers), developer community, ecosystem (cf. Apple/Google store)
  6. Let’s Connect O-N-L-I-N-E September 28 & 29, 2021 The Study

    – Data Basis ▪ Examination of portfolios of collaboration software that user companies have implemented to build their ECP ▪ 23 user companies (organisations from different industry sectors) ▪ total of 730’000 employees
