Over the past 10 years there has been in increased interest in the use of
collaboration and conferencing tools, where collaboration refers to communications
between individuals at multiple sites and conferencing refers to communications
between groups of individuals at multiple sites. Each type of tool has moved in a
different direction, collaboration toward proprietary based implementations and
conferencing toward standards based implementations. The increased interest is aided
in part by the penetration of higher speed Internet connectivity as well the enhanced
processing power of workstations. This paper will discuss the fundamental differences
between collaboration and conferencing technologies and how they developed in
different directions including where they are today and where they are heading.
