Riverbed's journey to collaboration nirvana
Not long ago, collaboration in the workplace was a pretty primitive affair. Tons of email and file attachments were the rule. Then came “collaboration” applications, including web conferencing, Internet file shares, social systems, which helped to connect people more efficiently.
