  2. 2. Introduction Collaboration has a different meaning compared to just 5 or 10 years ago. In 1979, when Bell South created the advertising theme “reach out and touch someone”, I’m sure they never imagined what that idea would mean in 2013. Collaboration through technology became tools to help solve problems, make decisions, and present ideas among groups. Tools Considered for Collaboration SkyDrive-File synchronization Prezi-Presentations Mighty Meeting-Video AffinityLive-Workflow Management Podio-Application Integration
