    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Options • Opinions • Results Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Options – On demand • Often called “hosted” or “ASP model” software • Also called “Software as a service” or SAAS • Web based and accessed via a login – Client-server • Someone installs software on your PC that talks to a server somewhere Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Opinions – On demand • Little or no IT department involvement means you’re up and running immediately with no installs • Very inexpensive • Security risks of remote data storage minimal • Team members can access software anywhere/anytime • Fixes, enhancements, etc. delivered in real time Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Opinions – Client Server • Led by IT department typically which slows results by definition • Usually overpowered for what 95% of teams need • Require administration by high paid employees or agents • Require installs and updates on clients • Costs more upfront (and probably over the long term also) Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Results – I’ve used on demand collaboration software for 2+ years now. Here are my results. • Reduction in complex solution deployment times by 42% • 66% reduction in “team e-mail spam” i.e. endless CC:’s that have little to do with me • Availability of information via authenticated RSS feeds • Instant status reports Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Results – I’ve used on demand collaboration software for 2+ years now. • Archived “database” of project communication and documentation • Reduced “seek time” for project related information • Greater visibility of successes since key players have “always on” access to progress • Increased accountability across the enterprise Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Results – I’ve used on demand collaboration software for 2+ years now. • Increasingly powerful project “templates” evolve over time and provide replication multiplier effect • Wiki functionality means team captures ad hoc data in a searchable group environment vs. “on his or her hard disk • Built in meeting tools facilitate easy remote participation with less travel Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
    • Leveraging Collaboration Software for Project Success • Results – The net/net • On-demand project collaboration software has saved me the equivalent of 2 professional manager salaries each year • The bonus – I keep finding more ways to save as my expertise with the software evolves…and as the software evolves to match customer demands Red meat...for heroes that rent iron and move dirt.
