The Document Collaboration solution for the Digital Workspace

Our team has been working with the Microsoft Matter Center team since early 2015 and have been part of the early adoption cycles along with pilot clients. We are now building solutions leveraging Matter Center for Office 365 often under the headline of Modern Workspace, Digital Workplace or as we call it, the Digital Workspace. 

On our journey with our clients – one thing has become very clear:

The Digital Workspace is more than an intranet or an information portal. To really take advantage of the technology around us and of the “second nature tech” skills that our younger colleagues bring to the table when they join the workforce, we need to think beyond our traditional frame of mind, locked into patterns of habits and outdated learning.

This is where Matter Center for O365 fits in. While it focuses on matter centric management of data, it is not a solution which is intended to compete with incumbent or traditional solutions for document management. Together with Office 365 it offers a foundation on which to build truly collaborative Document Collaboration solutions.

What is Matter Center?

While Microsoft have made a rather big splash about it, it does not appear to have been appreciated as much as it should be in the market place. Microsoft are promoting, supporting and releasing Open Source solutions, frameworks and products. Yes, Open Source. Matter Center for Office365 is an example of this, released under a “MIT Open Source license” via GitHub to the Microsoft partner community.

In Microsoft’s own words it is “a document management and collaboration solution built using the Office app development model, Azure and SharePoint”.

Furthermore, having released it via GitHub it is the hope that specialist partners can provide value added extensions and improvements which target specific regions or segments of the market. For instance, In-House legal for UK Financial Services or for Litigation Lawyers requiring collaboration, task management and document management to work efficiently to the Precedent H guidance and best practice.

It therefore offers a huge opportunity for end user organisations and Microsoft partners to work in collaboration to build a highly effective Digital Workspace.
