Collaboration Engineering

Productivity thrives when people and software tools can be meaningfully and effectively coordinated. Businesses thus require software that enables practical workflows and application interoperability, as well as communication platforms to increase connections between collaborators. At LINAGORA Labs, we design customized platforms that initiate and support business and personal collaboration by implementing social networking concepts such as synchronous communication and secure data exchange within an enterprise.

Personal Collaboration

As the remote work paradigm becomes the rule rather than the exception, LINAGORA is dedicated to facilitating this shift by developing a complete and efficient platform for collaboration at a distance that seamlessly combines our existing collaboration and productivity tools into a distributed, resilient, and scalable infrastructure. We are also looking to exploit new opportunities which arise during the transition from in-person to online work. For instance, more and more interactions will leave written traces, such as emails, chat messages and video conference transcripts, which can be used to help develop more sophisticated methods of information extraction and synthesis.

Organizational Collaboration

In business, collaboration is key: from manufacturing contexts, where production depends on multiple industrial partners and involves complex supply chains, to political and social contexts, where government and non-profit organizations must coordinate on efforts in crisis management. In all contexts, collaboration requires interoperability — the ability of natively independent systems to work in concert effectively without fundamentally modifying their individual structure or behavior. One of many solutions LINAGORA offers is the open-source Petals Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), designed to link heterogeneous services via a workflow engine thereby providing service-level interoperability according to the SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) pattern.
