Why Read This Report

PowerPoint is a valuable tool, but tends to be overused and sometimes is just not the right tool for the job. When presentation meets collaboration, whiteboard applications may provide a far more compelling solution. Trainers and educators, salespeople, consultants, designers, and developers will tell you nothing is as comfortable and as natural for explaining detailed concepts or for ideation as the whiteboard. Digital whiteboard applications and hardware have been around for a while and slow to take off. However, advancements in touchscreen technology, the explosion of smartphones and tablets, and plummeting prices for touch panel LCDs have resulted in a surge of new presentation and collaboration tools to take advantage of this hardware. This report defines this new category of whiteboarding solutions, investigates its benefits, and provides best practices for deployment success.
