Process Innovation with Google Wave

What will the collaboration space look like in five years time…

Google Wave promises to deliver an “explosion of innovation” due to it’s workflow, versioning and security functionality.

Briefly, Google Wave enables Users to work on the same content (known as a “wave”) which allows for text and multimedia functionality. A key use for Wave will be the reduction of email attachments and the associated versioning issues that comes with them. Google has accomplished this through the use of components called “wavelets” that are kept current on distributed servers. So if a comment is added to the wave on one server, all servers are updated with new versions of the wavelets. This also means that a change history is maintained and allows you to “playback” the version changes like a conversation so that you can see how the issue/topic has evolved from the first comment and who said what – another way to capture collective intelligence!

I love the suite of functionality that will be available to help us with version control, real-time collaboration on creating artefacts together.
