    Chit chat: The new team collaboration apps go mainstream

    Gone are the days of dial-up internet and ubiquitous AOL accounts, when Meg Ryan had mail and no one owned a smartphone. Yet, many years and seven iPhone generations later, email -- for all its frustrations and shortcomings -- still reigns as the undisputed norm when it comes to workplace communication. And while many desk jockeys bemoan their fraught relationships with overflowing inboxes, most also consider email a necessary evil of modern life -- hard to live with, but impossible to live without.

    The rising popularity of the new team collaboration apps, however, suggests email might ultimately prove more vulnerable than many believe. In this special edition of Network Evolution, we explore how the growing adoption of team collaboration apps -- such as Slack, Unify Circuit, Cisco Spark and Microsoft Teams -- creates a ripple effect in the mainstream enterprise that reaches beyond internal, employee-to-employee communication. Hear from one company that uses a messaging platform to communicate with customers, and find out why another early adopter believes team collaboration apps could even threaten LinkedIn as the go-to business-to-business social media platform.

    Also in this issue, learn more about the "land-and-expand" phenomenon helping these team collaboration apps gain footholds in the mainstream enterprise, and hear from a unified communications expert on the security risks of relying on open source collaboration software.

  • AR, VR tech poised to revolutionize digital business management

    We've all seen footage of astronauts being trained for space travel in virtual environments, and many of us were sucked into the augmented world of Pokémon Go when it debuted over the summer. It's the business world's turn to catch up now. Companies are using AR and VR tech to boost productivity, allow remote collaboration and improve training. But questions remain as to whether these technologies will provide real digital business management value to companies. We try to help companies get out in front of the trend in this issue of CIO Decisions. That mission led us to talk to companies about their experiences implementing AR and VR technologies and their influence on digital business management. Elsewhere in this issue, representatives from the MIT Media Lab discuss whether autonomous machines can have morals, and the CIO of Oral Roberts University discusses how to overcome the "IKEA effect" on IT. Continue Reading
