Collaboration Accelerator: faster information, distribution & collaboration


Forum One and Acquia are launching the Collaboration Accelerator to streamline collaboration between knowledge workers in government, think tanks, foundations, and NGOs, by easing the technical, procurement, and security barriers that typically plague online collaboration in government and the NGO community.  For the first time, digital teams will be able to quickly build online communities of practice or knowledge hubs and collaborate with other governmental and NGO organizations. 

Building on the success of this solution within the private sector, Forum One and Acquia are bringing this solution to market. Acquia provides an open cloud platform for digital experience delivery.  Acquia and Forum One have collaborated on many engagements over the years, including work for the American Red Cross and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Join us as we talk about how we utilized Drupal Commons to build the Collaboration Accelerator which helps team members manage groups, share resources and track projects from start to finish using their desktop or mobile device.  The accelerator also includes a range of services designed to keep the community active and engaged, namely: strategic planning, governance, member management, metric setting, and training.

Delivered on the Acquia Platform, the Collaboration Accelerator is designed to help U.S. government agencies achieve and sustain compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). Using the Acquia Platform, federal agencies may deploy government data and applications in the cloud while complying with the rigorous security requirements of federal standards.
