A conceptual model

Conference paper


GroupWare is a system(s) that helps workgroups share information and coordinate work-flows (Zigurs et al., 1988). It handles the access, manipulation, and sharing of data, information, and knowledge among a group of people, and in some cases it provides mechanisms by which the user(s) can query the system for a recommendation, given a particular problem. These group activities can be carried out in both centralized as well as distributed configurations.
