Innovation Through Collaboration in the Manufacturing & Life Sciences Industries

Over at, author Sean Dudley re-posted an article earlier this week on how Microsoft and its partners are helping companies improve real time enterprise collaboration in an effort to boost innovation.

He quotes the August issue of Prime magazine, where Egbert Schröer, worldwide managing director of process manufacturing and resources at Microsoft, talks about how "collaboration can be used as part of the innovation process within companies." Schröer goes on to talk about examples of social computing and how companies are continuing to invest in new collaboration technologies to help advance their workforce and find new ways of harnessing the best and brightest ideas.

The article also mentions the role that virtual worlds are playing, with the example given by Andrea McGonigle, managing director of Life Sciences at Microsoft, on the work that we've done with PPD. In the article she comments, "I think virtual worlds will continue to make collaboration advances and really enhance the experience at another level. These spaces will be powered by the cloud that will allow people to access them anywhere, anytime, and scale up and down quickly."

You can head over to to read the full article and download the rest of the August issue.
