Executive Summary

Competitive advantage for today's globally networked, extended enterprise is driven by how quickly and effectively it can harness the collective knowledge of every constituent, which can occur only through collaboration. This has driven collaboration to the top of nearly every CIO's priority list, with high performance business file sharing and collaboration infrastructure now a must-have for any organization that wants to enable a more productive workforce.
