PARADIGM SHIFT IN INTER-ORGANISATIONAL COLLABORATION - A Framework for Web based Dynamic eCollaboration

Ioakim (Makis) Marmaridis, Athula Ginige

Abstract

The proliferation of the World Wide Web (web) offers new ways for organisations to do business and collaborate with others to gain competitive advantage. Dynamic eCollaboration has the characteristics to keep up with the fast changing business landscape. It requires however a framework for collaboration that can also keep up with rapid change. In this paper we present the Dynamic eCollaboration model that brings the concepts of P2P collaboration to organisations. It fills this gap and offers a new avenue for organisations of all sizes to embrace collaboration and benefit from it. We also present our technology framework built to support Dynamic eCollaboration. The framework is component-based and extensible with an architecture that can scale. It incorporates a flexible security subsystem, a lightweight workflow engine optimised for web applications and a novel method for bundling and sharing web based information called Bitlet.
