    Question What is Microsoft Groove ?

    Written by Ray Ozzie, the author of Lotus Notes, now Chief Architect at Microsoft, you could call it version 2 of Lotus Notes and it's opposite in many ways. It is a more powerful, collaboration tool, but also easy to install, needs no servers or IT administration, and is cost effective for even the smallest user in a small town with nothing more than a phone / internet line.

    1. Microsoft Office Groove 2007 creates dynamic workspaces to hold all digital information related to any Task, this could be a software project, a board discussion, or even a virtual classroom.

    2. Each workspace is populated with only those members who have a need to know that information. Nobody else has access to it and even the roles and permissions allowed to each member can be set by the workspace manager.

    3. All members in a workspace have all information automatically synchronised. No cc's and no acts of ommission or commission permit information to leak out or be forgotten. Groove is both identity and device secured, so leaking of a password means little, and data cannot just be copied and restored on another Groove account.

    4. Groove guarantees not just security but also reliability of the information passing through the workspace. Once posted, you can be assured that ALL members WILL get that data - even under battlefield conditions, certified by the US DoD, Interpol and other security conscious organisations from GSK to KPMG to the UN.



    5. Finally it is a viral product, that just grows in usage and benefits organically. It the best catalyst to innovation within any company, because it brings people together into a real time virtual world, just like being in the same room with the others. It cuts out fritter, speeds up decision making and improves team efficiency by at least 40%.

    And is it worth looking at Groove ? Read More on that HERE.

    I've tried using Groove & found it quite interesting but never had an actual use for it yet. Nice article though.

    Hello Friends.......

    Microsoft Office Groove, soon to be named Microsoft SharePoint Workspace, is a desktop application designed for document collaboration in teams with members who are regularly off-line or who do not share the same network security clearance.

    Thanks
