Groove and Sharepoint

Intranet Journal : Groove and Microsoft take office out of the office

Groove Networks is getting its groove on with Microsoft's SharePoint in a pairing that brings big benefits to mobile intranet users. Separately, each product has a lot to offer, but together they offer an ideal solution for mobile professionals that neither alone can provide.

Groove and Weblogs

Tue, 15 Jul 2003 15:03:44 GMT

Some renewed interest in our Groove-Radio Interop Tool due to an Infoworld column by Chad Dickerson:

This leads to my second Weblog, which isn't actually a Weblog per se -- it's a Groove discussion for members of InfoWorld's technology department. It functions essentially as a group Weblog (in fact, Tim Knip's Groove Interop Tool for Radio can make it officially a Weblog).

Too bad we don't have plans for an update of this Groovetool in the near future. NonGroove related projects take up all of our time. Still good to see people are using it :-)

Compartmentalizing networks

Infoworld : Thwarting the enemy within

As our readers revealed in the Security Survey, they have a pressing need for ad-hoc VPN capability. Secure e-mail and Groove are two viable ways to get it now. The flurry of interest surrounding Waste, the secure peer-to-peer software that AOL's Nullsoft division released and then hastily withdrew last month, suggests that other options may soon emerge. The societies fenced in by our firewalls are complex, and we need more than a few tools to manage their safety.

Get Groovin'

Webupdate : Get Groovin'

We at Web Update found the shared file space the most useful part of the workspace. While developing a recent newsletter, we used it to share story ideas, store article lists, as well as the final copy. We tended to use the chat features the least, probably because we are a small company and communicate often in person. But for companies with remote offices, or staff on the road, this chat feature could be frequently used.

Groove in times of SARS

Mon, 07 Jul 2003 07:13:58 GMT

An interesting casestudy on the usage of Groove within a consultancy company.

During the period of travel restrictions imposed as a result of the SARS outbreak, using Groove Workspace for new business development efforts became more critical. Says Schoonover: "Groove was just a massive life saver when we couldn't travel because of SARS.

Maybe the choice of words is a bit unlucky but it clearly shows Groove's strong points.

Microsoft gets contract from US Army

Fri, 27 Jun 2003 12:23:18 GMT

Yahoo! News : Microsoft Lands Large Army Software Contract

Microsoft said on Wednesday that it clinched the largest single-deal contract ever for the world's No. 1 software maker, a $471 million pact to provide software for 494,000 personal computers to the U.S. Army.

Taken into account this week's news that Groove has been added to the Defense Collaboration Suite and the strong MS-Groove relationship, I can't help wondering if Groove Workspaces (+Sharepoint?) are somehow part of this deal.

Groove in austere environments

Fri, 20 Jun 2003 07:47:51 GMT

Groove publishes a new whitepaper named Use of Groove software in austere environments

Alongside the soldiers and other members of the military fighting in Iraq, was an often unseen but important group that was responsible for identifying and coordinating humanitarian aid. The people, from many governmentaland non-governmental groups including the U.S. Army,US Marines, UK DFID, International Medical Corps., Mercy Corps. and other civilian agencies, were in Iraq and neighboring countries to collect and share assessment data that would drive critical decisions about the prioritization and distribution of humanitarian aid. They were supported by Groove Workspace software, which is especially well suited for rapid deployment in austere environments such as the battlefields of Iraq.

Analysis of the Microsoft and Groove Partnership

Fri, 20 Jun 2003 07:34:14 GMT

Smart Solutions : Collaborating on Collaboration

Conceptually, Microsoft Office is still a document-centric system, enhanced with real-time services for presence awareness and real-time communication. Conceptually, Groove focuses more on verbs than nouns; it assumes a decentralized shared workspace context and delivers collaboration and powerful off-line/resync capabilities by asynchronously disseminating actions (verbs) within the shared context instead of replicating documents (nouns). This results in a different form-follows-function fit, despite some overlap and synergy. It's certainly not a right-or-wrong or either-or scenario. As previously noted, Groove and SharePoint were designed to address different customer needs, and their architectural differences are more complementary than competitive.

Groove teams with LogicLibrary to marry products

Infoworld : Groove taps app dev

Groove Networks this week will partner with LogicLibrary to integrate Groove's virtual collaboration software with LogicLibrary's software development asset mapping and discovery engine.

More info can be found on the LogicLibrary website

The first byproduct of the alliance is a discussion tool that LogicLibrary has created within Groove Workspace specifically for Logidex™, LogicLibrary's software development asset (SDA) mapping and discovery engine. This will enable software developers to more effectively manage their software resources and more easily collaborate to reduce the time required to build high-quality Web services and other critical software applications.
