Monsanto Enhances Collaboration With Cisco, Microsoft Technologies
Monsanto, one of the world's leading agricultural companies, takes advantage of team collaboration and ubiquitous access to corporate information in its global business processes. But aging technology was creating slow connections and frustrations for users who wanted to expedite the transfer of documents and other information. To boost productivity and bandwidth, Monsanto deployed Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Cisco Wide Area Application Services. The result is that Monsanto employees have better tools for collaborating and for publishing information. In addition, use of bandwidth has been greatly improved, so people working in remote areas with limited connectivity options can experience LAN-like performance.
