On top of all those collaboration- and cloud-services a lot of us have found out that working together has not become much easier since the introduction of those services. As today every organization uses own infrastructure either self-hosted or an online services the borders have only moved but have not gotten transparent when needed.

Even hosted on your own systems -Dietmar Gombotz, CEO of SPHARES SPHARES is a small start-up team of 5 from Vienna with the mission to make working-life and collaboration much easier by providing a tool that allows you to integrate different work environments without having to actually change tools.
