Classifying collaborative technologies, part 2

Part 1 outlines where we stand in our efforts so far, and some areas where the model falls short.

An alternate, or perhaps supplemental, approach would be to talk about how collaborative technologies fill the holes in our current suite of tools. Some of the confusion around team workspaces and document management comes from the fact that they are both enterprise content management tools, albeit with very different purposes. It is reminiscent of the people thinking that we could rollout Sharepoint Team Services instead of TeamSite. Not a chance. Different tools with different purposes.

Similarly, maybe SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is really just extending our network to support collaboration -- the network of the future.
