Collaboration Strategy Guidance

This guidance helps healthcare organizations select the most appropriate collaboration technology for their needs from Microsoft Office Groove 2007, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007.

The Collaboration Strategy Guidance describes the features and relative strengths of each of the three products, provides guidelines about when to use each product and adds examples illustrating typical usage scenarios.

This guidance is suitable for use by healthcare organizations that:

  • Have not yet deployed Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Office Groove 2007
  • Would like to define a strategy for how collaboration products should be used in their organization
  • Would like to begin to plan and define a business case
  • Collaboration Strategy Guidance

    This guide helps reduce the risk of collaboration technology errors, helps ensure the most productive user experience, and helps ensure the most suitable implementation for the existing network and infrastructure.
