  • Enterprise collaboration, cartels and confidentiality
    A few years ago, I participated in a meeting in which several different agencies discussed data management software. When the representative for the GSA explained the availability of shared services, meeting attendees understood the potential cost savings. By using software already licensed, the time and cost for launching a new initiative could be slashed. The talk was positive, but the concept of shared services has been making only modest progress. Collaboration was useful in the meeting.

    But once the agency representatives got back to home base, it was business as usual.
