Consolidate Your Collaboration

There are a variety of ways collaboration silos happen.

For some organizations, it's the result of merger and acquisition activity, “legalized” shadow IT, or different business units choosing their own collaboration systems. For others, offices in different geographies may have grown up with different tenants or data has naturally diffused across systems over time.

But for all organizations, having data in multiple collaboration environments is bad news because it:

  • Hampers internal communication and productivity
  • Prevents the formation of a cohesive organizational culture that can help retain talent
  • Increases license and maintenance costs as well as the risk of data leaks
