Summary

In 2009, Forrester produced The Forrester Wave™: Collaboration Platform to evaluate a maturing vendor landscape for document collaboration solutions.

At the same time, demand for mobile document collaboration has resulted in new requirements that drive users to self-provision solutions if IT is not immediately responsive.
