Task and project management, file sharing, ideation, and workflow integration are all critical elements in providing teams with the tools they need.
My No Jitter post last month looked at five tips for building a successful team collaboration strategy, but I confess an error on my part: A messaging-centric view of ‘team collaboration.’ Team collaboration is much broader than just messaging; and successful IT leaders will consider more than just how their workers chat when building a successful strategy.
It’s not hard to see how discussions of team collaboration often delve into comparing products like Cisco Spark, Microsoft Teams, RingCentral Glip, and Slack. These products, and dozens of other competitors, have captured a great deal of attention in the real-time collaboration market, as they represent the evolution of unified communications. As vendors have shunned the label of “team chat,” team collaboration and workstream collaboration have become more widespread terms used to describe these apps.
