Application sharing - a key service for a distributed organisation

Abstract: This paper is a case study of implementation and use of application sharing in a distributed engineering organisation. Technical aspects and requirements to the infrastructure are addressed, but the focus is on how application sharing is conceived by the users, experiences from use and possible implications for organisation of project teams and support services. Possibilities and critical success factors are identified. Barriers and limitations are also identified. Natural dissemination to all employees has been slower than expected. The time and effort needed to implement the service in an organisation should not be underestimated. However, to many of the engineers, application sharing has become an everyday an indispensable service, enabling distributed solving of closely coupled tasks. The author advocates that a distributed organisation can reap the investment in very short time.
