SFSU ISYS 363-1 Fall 2013 Athletics

  1. 1. SFSU ISYS 363 Fall 2013 Section #1 Group - Athletics
  2. 2. Introduction This is a group project in which we will expound our research of five separate collaborative tools available for use. Each tool has it’s own purpose, and for that reason each will be evaluated on a selection of criteria: Security and Privacy, File Sharing and Storage Capabilities, Pricing and Availability, and availability of A/V conferencing. At the end of the presentation, our group will express which collaborative tool we find most beneficial and useful.
  3. 3. Description of Selected Tools ● Trello is an application designed to enhance and assist organizational efficiency. With the use of boards (very similar to a Facebook wall), both the host and guests can post cards. Cards can contain text, pictures, and videos. This extremely versatile application can be used in any situation and on any device. ● Yammer is a social network that creates a platform for businesses to communicate ideas through out the whole business. Allowing members to post on a common wall as well as have their own walls to further express their ideas and make decisions from anywhere at anytime. ● Basecamp ties together group members on a web-based platform with easy to use to-do lists and real time editing updates. Although the free trial version is only available for one project, the cheapest membership fee ($24) offers users premium quality project management tools for an affordable price. While the site offers a simple layout and easy to use interface it does lack certain tools one may deem necessary. ● Google drive is a file storage service. Google allows people to share files, use cloud storage and edit files between multiple users. It is a free service to anyone who has a Google email account and can be very good resource for users working in a collaborative setting but may not be able to physically meet with each other in person. ● Wunderlist is one of the simplest ways to manage and share your daily to-do lists. Whether you’re running your own business, collaborating on a group project or sharing a shopping list with a friend, Wunderlist can help you get things done. Although the free version is more than sufficient for most
  4. 4. Cons: • Cards/tasks are limited to only one Board/Project • Limited email integration and label • Difficult to work with multiple cards or tasks in the UI, like for moving, copy/paste and such. Pros: ● Easy to follow UI ● It’s FREE! ● Saves information automatically ● Boards/cards can be shared with the public or kept private Trello
  5. 5. Pros: + Connects people in the workplace, keeps everyone’s ideas connected and easy to be seen. +Breaks down barriers in the workplace. Allowing new employees the ability to share ideas that can be seen by positions higher up. +Easy to use and has the ability to share and upload files and images. + Free and is easy to get started with. + Functional on smartphones and tablets. Cons: - Relies on the constant use of the business to keep the interaction going. - Not effective unless everyone agrees to joining and constantly being active on the Yammer network.

  6. 6. Drive Pros 1.) Google has a close relationship with US intelligence agencies to try and prevent hackers from stealing users information. 2.) Google drive has a cloud storage unit you can save a massive amount of internet onto your google drive. You can also share information easily between profiles. 3.) Google drive is free and accessible to any user with a gmail account 4.) Has apps in which you can download Google play which allows you to view, edit and store visual presentations. Cons 1.) Because google drive uses cloud storage and it is accessible by the public it would not be good to store highly sensitive data onto google drive. 2.) Although you might have a lot of storage space using google drive the negative aspect to this would be if you have too much data stored it may be hard for you to find specific data that you need. 3.) There are so many users on Google drive this makes it a target for spammers and hackers looking to obtain information from innocent clients. 4.) the video presentation app is only available for iphone and android users.
  7. 7. Pros: ● Basecamp offers a free two month trial to new members and membership as low as $20/ month. ● Shared files can be searched by not only in certain projects but also by specific users. ● Basecamp texts docs allow users to write and edit together in real time. They also offer to-do lists and daily progress timelines that update in real time. ● Basecamp is available on the go with apps for the iPhone, Droid, and Windows Phone 7 with added security to ensure your data is kept safe and secure. Cons: ● No audio or video chat compatibility. ● With the system’s newest update time management is only available with additional application add-ons. ● Despite organization, searching for works is not always useful. ● Limited storage for each membership leve ranging from 10 MB to 75 GB.

  8. 8. Pros: • Wunderlist syncs across all your devices to keep you on top of all the things you want to do, from anywhere. • You can easily share lists with your colleagues, friends and family to collaborate on anything from team projects to group dinners. • It has an intuitive design and friendly reminders ensure you never forget important deadlines (or birthday gifts) ever again. Cons: · It does not have recurring reminders with the ability to snooze. · They do not have a password option when opening the app. · It doesn't sync with Google apps. It would be more convenient if it was able to sync with Google calendars. Wunderlist
