Accelerator for the development of collaborative enterprises

now enterprises increasingly rely on collaboration in their daily work, and most of the collaboration is closely related to content information. Enterprise portal has become an important way for users including customers, partners and internal employees to obtain relevant information, and its simple operation has also improved its utilization rate. The strong demand makes the enterprise portal market grow rapidly. IDC predicts that the market will reach US $3.1 billion by 2006. However, like the traditional file management system, the enterprise portal can not continuously provide satisfactory collaboration benefits. What is the problem

as a professional provider of content management solutions, interwoven has successfully implemented relevant solutions for more than 3000 enterprises around the world. Customers will purchase foreign products to help enterprises effectively solve the problems of content information production, release, storage and intelligence. In the actual communication with customers, interwoven found that the problem did not lie in the collaboration itself, but in the application mode of the enterprise. For different reasons, many enterprises ultimately choose those systems that lack efficiency and flexibility, so they simply can not meet the real business needs of users and enterprises, thus affecting the benefits of enterprise portals

in addition, the traditional file management system and the enterprise portal are incompatible with each other in many functions, which can not meet the actual needs of cross regional and cross functional work teams in today's society. This has also become one of the important reasons why the enterprise portal can not achieve good collaboration

virtual team collaboration space has become the latest focus of enterprises

although file management systems can help enterprises control content, and enterprise portal stations can help personnel access content, the design of these systems fails to properly reflect the requirements of today's enterprises for the working environment: virtual team. According to the research on "the best example of project management" conducted by Harvard Business Review Magazine for the world's top 500 enterprises (may2004), less than 4% of the teams actually work together, and less than 17% of the teams have held meetings attended by members in person. In addition, more than 66% of the team members are located across at least three time zones, 57% of the teams are cross departmental, and 48% of the teams include members outside the enterprise, such as contractors, agents, lawyers, outsourcers and other cooperative manufacturers

the implication of this research result is very clear: it would be too ignorant and out of date to think that the concept of collaboration is that everyone works together in front of the round table in the conference room. Under the trend of global economic integration, the project space of entities has become a thing of the past, and the demand of enterprises for a unified collaborative environment across departments and regions is quite urgent. Now the software must complete this task, that is, to provide a virtual project space as the main platform for team work. In this space, team members can share knowledge to create maximum operational efficiency; Give full play to their respective expertise in the right way at the right time, so as to improve business efficiency; In addition, the establishment, management, modification and collaborative integration of the content are concentrated in a single and perfect process, so that the team members seem to work together on the same conference table without being blocked by the time factors such as distance, firewall and time zone, and if the processing cycle is too long

the system function of providing the above virtual project space is determined by the work to be carried out at present. Generally speaking, most collaborative work teams in enterprises try to do two types of work: the first type of work is to make a set of project related documents, such as writing a contract for customers. In this case, the team must first collect information related to the customer's objectives, needs, finance and other contents, and then convene team members from different functional departments (such as sales personnel, business personnel, financial personnel, legal personnel, etc.) to jointly draft the provisions of this contract. After the articles are completed, they will be sent to internal and external units for review according to the process

once the first draft is completed, the second type of work of the collaborative work team will start, that is, the implementation of the project. For example, the collaborative work team must supervise whether the conditions of the contract documents can be fulfilled

it can be seen that collaboration can be found at any stage of the project, so a good collaboration system can bring infinite benefits to the enterprise. Interwoven's worksite MP collaborative cooperation system has been adopted by thousands of enterprises around the world, especially for complex workflow and environment, such as the launch of new products, the formulation of plans and contracts, the company's legal affairs, and general project management. Practice has shown that interwoven worksite MP can improve. If 1 there is a large gap, PCI analysts believe that the organizational decision-making process and the implementation efficiency can be accelerated, and the average efficiency can be improved by 40%

Mr. chenkaixin, general manager of Greater China of interwoven company in the United States, said: the emergence of collaborative cooperation system conforms to the trend of globalization and cooperative development in modern society. It can establish a good virtual workspace for people scattered in various regions of the world, completely eliminate the space distance, and effectively improve the work efficiency of enterprises!
