In the wake of the recession, IT organizations are finding that interest in collaboration tools is now especially high. End users are looking to IT for tools that will help them increase productivity across what in many cases are sharply reduced workforces.

At the same time, a study of 538 C-level executives conducted by Kelton Research on behalf of the IT services firm Avanade finds that there is a distrust of collaboration tools among some executive in terms of the amount of time that can be potentially wasted versus gained using these tools. You can read our Mike Vizard's full take on the survey here.

In either event, spending on collaboration tools appears to be headed up as IT organizations and end users alike experiment with the host of new collaboration and communications technologies that have become available over the last two years.
