Designing for Mobile Collaboration

Portals and KM

Forrester states that the problem is the lack of capacity, bandwidth, and data close to the device. Mobile collaboration is an increasingly important topic as two-thirds of the information workforce already work remotely, according to Forrester data.

Integrating online and face-to-face participation in a community of practice

Jenny Connected

Bandwidth has been an issue so that the original idea that we would all be able to be connected via Adobe Connect all the time in small and whole group sessions didn’t work. It might be a while before we can integrate online and face-to-face participation with colleagues in Africa, for example, where bandwidth and download times make synchronous online interaction very difficult.

Follow-up from the Leadership Learning Community Webinar

In my experience where bandwidth and electricity are limiting elements the most effective technology is email based technology. There are also community rhythm issues when you have people coming from diverse bandwidth contexts. Last Monday I was a guest of the Leadership Learning Community for an short online gathering.

Ten Reasons Why "Enterprise RSS" Has Failed To Become Mainstream

Collaborative Thinking

IT organizations may be concerned about network utilization and their inability to manage bandwidth concerns. The article below is interesting in that it does call out a dark truth - enterprise adoption of feed syndication tools has been lacking.

There are a host of reasons why Enterprise RSS has not taken off yet (vs. died).
