Holistic: Collaboration Tools

Last modification: 2008/07/20 23:55

There will, of course, never be complete agreement about the best way to collaborate. Humans prefer to operate in vastly different ways, and one of the traditional challenges of software is to provide an interface that provides maximum flexibility while minimizing confusion.

Each tool is given a set of indications and contraindications. Criteria which are relevant in forming these judgments are:

  • Stability & reliability
  • Flexibility (for users)
  • Extensibility (for IT&S developers)
  • Demonstrated successful implementations
  • Data Jail impact (the ability to extract data from the system)
  • Target market (including optimum organisation size, field of endeavour, knowledge context)


  • Content Authoring and Publishing
  • Project & Task Management
  • Team Workflow
  • Information Sharing
  • Knowledge Sharing
