Remote collaboration

Liked this artical on remote collaboration...lots of hints and tips on different technologies for bridging the communication gap!  I use Yammer at work and also Dropbox at home which I've found great for doing CIPD work as it doesn't matter wether I use the laptop or pc, I can access my files.  It's also been really helpful for sharing the files/work for the Celebrating Success Unit where a few of us are pulling together a presentation as we can share the files and view each others work at the click of a button instead of sending large emails and losing track of the latest version. :-)

  • Good luck with that Rachel, I had regular showdowns with the Head of Information Security at RBS about our firewall and inability to use web tools that would help us work smarter.

    You can get Dropbox for the enterprise now so that might be worth looking at but unfortunately a lot of organisations put Dropbox in the 'online/network storage' which means that any information can be uploaded and effectively leave the organisation therefore it's restricted from work networks.. Even though this can be done via email anyway there is still big resistance to using these tools. It's down to us to help educate and raise awareness how these tools can be used effectively and work with our IT colleagues to stay safe and secure but start to use technology more effectively / productively.

    There is of course a far greater danger to our corporate communications and threat to our information

  • I'm going to see if our IT would allow the use of Dropbox at work as they've banned the use of USBs which gives us a real headache!

     

  • Absolutely agree about DropBox. It's such a useful tool to be able to drop my assignments in each evening, knowing that if I get a bit of spare time at work I can easily open them up again - without having to worry about carrying a USB stick around with me.  Keynote is good as well - for presentations.
