Collaboration and content sharing are not, of course, new concepts. But cloud computing has changed the nature of collaboration, content sharing, document storage and project management to enable more efficient, faster-acting and cost-effective enterprises.

- Storing content on a massive scale
- Achieving a dynamic flow of information
- Ensuring that content is up-to-date and available from any device
