Collaboration solutions are quickly becoming
embedded in enterprise environments,
spurring a new outlook on how to extend their
utility to make a greater impact on the organization.
Such solutions are also spotlighting
the role of managed service providers in securing,
maintaining and driving business value
and the overall cost savings and operational
efficiencies created by the current class of
collaborative tools and technologies. In the
report, we detail current perceptions of managed
collaboration services and capabilities by
analyzing data collected from a recent
survey of IT professionals, performed by
InformationWeek Research. The findings paint
a surprisingly clear picture, given that
collaboration�s uptake has been difficult to
gauge in the past due to a lack of awareness
of key features and capabilities by IT decision
makers and users and inadequate funding or
support from senior management.
Our research, however, shows definitive support for collaboration and suggests that IT leaders are becoming far more comfortable acting as advocates toward further adoption. Learn more today!
