Introduction to the groupware concept
The term "Groupware" refers to the methods and software tools which allow users to carry out joint work across networks.
The term GroupWare therefore refers to miscellaneous and varied applications which contribute to one and the same goal: allowing users that are geographically apart to work in a team. Teamwork can be conducted through sharing information or rather creating and exchanging computerized data. In most cases, groupware refers to messaging tools (whether instantaneous or not) as well as miscellaneous applications such as:
- shared agenda
- shared document workspace
- information exchange tools (electronic forums)
- contact management tool
- workflow tools
- electronic conferencing (videoconferencing, chat, etc.)
