Innovation is critical to compete in the 21st century and collaboration is

    External collaboration is indispensable. CEOs stressed the overwhelming
    importance of collaborative innovation – beyond company walls.
    Business partners and customers were cited as top sources of innovative
    ideas …

A collaboration gap looms large

State of current tools contributes to the gap……

 •   Fragmented: collaboration tools are
     fragmented and disjointed
 •   Hard-to-use: only those with greatest
     need are willing to tackle the learning
 •   Stove-pipe silos: users are forced to
     change applications to access needed
     collaboration services
 •   Lack of integration: separation between
     communication and collaboration services
     leads many users to fall back to the
     pervasive “reply to all”
 •   Unfamiliar: current tools don’t enable
     users to stay within their favorite
Our tools are good but……

  •   They are application specific

  •   In the end, email still rules
    Transform the trend into strategy…

•     Integration & flexibility:
        – Fits right into the applications we use
       – Customizable to meet your needs
       – Open
•     Simplicity:
       – Easy to get started
       – Easy to learn
       – Simplifies your everyday work
•     Anytime, anywhere access:
       – Collaborate inside or outside
