What is Microsoft Groove 2007 ?
At its most basic level, Groove is desktop software designed to facilitate collaboration and communication among small groups.The cool thing about Groove is that it works seamlessly through firewalls and doesn’t require any sort of server.One can always colloborate regardless of the network/firewall/NAT, etc. Ray Ozzie founded Groove Networks and Microsoft bought out Groove.Microsoft didn’t disclose terms of the acquisition, but it invested $51 million in Groove in 2001 and contributed to a $38 million investment round in 2003 that also included Intel and Accel Partners.
Microsoft has been pushing a product called SharePoint Portal Server that lets workers share documents and search for information, but it has been leaning on Groove to fill a critical gap.
The central Groove paradigm is the shared workspace, a set of files to be shared plus some aids for group collaboration.Groove works PC to PC, and that peer-to-peer architecture also lets users work offline, then later on send their changes to everyone who cares.Groove allows information workers to rapidly create ad-hoc workspaces on their desktop when working from a home office, a small regional office or at a hotel during a business trip.
As demand grows for ad hoc collaboration among people who don’t share the same employer–or network–PC users are setting up more electronic work spaces themselves, and they don’t want to call in IT staff to do it.
