What is collaboration?


Collaboration in the context of business allows people to work together in achieving a defined, common business purpose. Collaboration can occur in real-time through tools like online meetings and instant messaging or it can occur over a drawn-out period of time through shared workspaces in the cloud. Effective business collaboration might need a mix of good culture, technology, and governance. The technology used by business for collaboration includes Enterprise Management systems and cloud-based shared workspaces.
