Everyone’s going mobile. The target seems to be clear: All companies want their employees to be able to work while they are on the road, at the airport, between meetings etc. (I personally miss the days when going for a coffee was just to drink coffee…no WiFi, no work)
With the current available tools in Office 365, collaboration can really take a productivity flight! There are several features available that allow people to co-create content together. This article will provide a better understanding of the benefits of co-creating content.

Our workday world has changed dramatically with the advent of always on internet access and the explosion of mobile devices in the enterprise. Employees are no longer tethered to their desks in office buildings but are in the field working face to face with clients and customers.
