Oracle Collaboration Suite is a recently-released package that integrates email, calendaring, voice mail, file management and other collaborative services.
Client Services Division recently organised a demonstration for IT managers of the Oracle Collaboration Suite: a recently-released package that integrates email, calendaring, voice mail, file management and collaborative services.
Based on open standards, the Suite is being investigated for its potential introduction in the University as a campus-wide service to replace the many email servers on campus, and the Netscape Calendar (which is no longer supported by its developers). The Suite would also allow the University to extend its document management system to cover all staff, and possibly students as well. The first of a new breed of integrated, open-standards based services offerings, competing products from Sun and Microsoft are not yet available for evaluation or comparison.
