Know your tool and what to use it for
Steve has posted with a link to a handy slide deck showing a very generalised list of the strengths and weaknesses of a range of Microsoft collaboration products.
I’m really loving Groove, it’s a great ad-hoc tool for collaboration, and causing mayhem in my internal IT team through the viral nature of it’s propagation. you create a workspace send out the invites and there’s immediately half a dozen helpdesk calls asking for the trial to be installed. absolute Genius.
Steve’s post made me consider the fact that Groove has no Voice capabilities which seems strange, it would surely be simple to integrate this into the application, maybe it’s down to worry about Groove eroding the USPs of other apps? not sure, it seems like an oversight… going to do some digging.
