Improve online (co) editing of documents

0 Votes

Improved online editing and document (co) editing using Libre Office Online (LOOL) or Microsoft Office. Include Libre Office Online as an online document solution using TeamWorks or even GroupWise WebAccess as the back end. Much like Google Docs but, open standards, not locked in, self-hosted storing data on self-controlled infrastructure.

I believe that there are companies looking for a better way to co-edit documents without relying on outsourced cloud providers. This is also from the regulations perspective a unique point as data never has to leave its silo. This technology can be leveraged in a browser and the apps.

I created in the Filr Idea Portal a quite long how and why we need such a thing in place also from a competitive perspective. We need to face the likes of Microsoft and Google are never let use to integrate at an equal level compared to their own solutions. Besides that, it always is better to control the ecosystem ourselves as Windows-Office-Outlook has proven so far. Leveraging LibreOffice Online in the enterprise-ready version of Collabora Online (COOL) assures the needed backend development and support. Collabora is, in essence, the old SUSE LibreOffice team.
