The Collaboration Decision Matrix outlines the competitive dynamics within the collaboration market and guides IT decision makers to select a vendor based on its product strength, reputation among customers, and impact in the market.

Highlights of this title

Datamonitor believes that the enterprise collaboration products can be broadly segmented into the following categories: productivity suites, content management systems, team workspaces, and social networks.
