Ubiquitous Secure Document Storage and Sharing - A Case Study

Monday, January 1, 2007


The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee was recently recognized with an InfoWorld 100 Award for our innovative approach in addressing the need for collaboration within a public research university challenged by an ambitious vision and limited funds. Our first major initiative was transitioning from local LAN-based systems to a Web-based system with document storage and sharing capabilities. We selected Xythos because it met our need for a flexible, secure system that could facilitate desired collaboration among faculty, staff, and students through document sharing. We will summarize our experiences with the Xythos implementation and focus on the applied uses of flexible solutions other WebDAV-based technologies offer.
