The VP of Marketing has asked your IT organization to help improve their collaboration across their marketing projects. The marketing organization works internally with the following departments:
They also work externally with creative agencies who provide digital media, graphic art and written copy for the companys website.
The marketing team would like a collaboration tool to store documents, exchange project files, create online documents, manage tasks and improve communication across all internal and external team members. They would really like to get away from emailing files and their comments as the team suffers from email overload.
The marketing department has 100 team members (employees, contractors and external agency resources) who need to use the collaboration tool.
Your CIO has asked you to lead a 2-3 person team to review the capabilities of different collaboration tools and make a recommendation.
