If you look at what many workers now consider their job, it seems so.

NetworkWorld cites a study in the UK that reports 50% of staff costs are now for employees doing “information work.” So much revolves around data that the report also says that workers having a problem searching for information can take up to 10% of their salary.

Enterprise level collaboration tools help share knowledge, and capture information from employees’ work to make managing and accessing information easier. So aside from the time and salary savings, it appears the adoption of collaboration solutions is just a way to realign the company processes – working the way more of their employees are working now – sharing and managing information.

What do you think? Is this Ripe, and sharing knowledge through collaboration tools is a cost saver, or is it Hype?
