Was ist Asynchrone Groupware?
Asynchronous groupware enables and facilitates the collaboration of several participants, but not necessarily at the same time. In short, asynchronous groupware supports communication between physically and geographically dispersed groups of individuals at different times, as opposed to synchronous groupware.
Examples of asynchronous groupware are email, structured messages, agents, workflow, computer conferences, file sharing systems, collaborative writing systems, and collaborative hypertext and organizational storage.
Emails use recipient names to organize access, with the added benefit of multiple recipient addressing. Structured messages allow users to organize, classify, manage, and filter messages. Agents are autonomous software to which tasks are delegated. Workflow stores messages that define and manage workflows while conference systems or bulletin boards are accessed.
Asynchronous groupware users can work together anonymously on shared data access and changes. Asynchronous user collaborations are successfully maintained when users can apply changes or contributions without restriction. This is achieved through replicated data management systems with read / write access that allow simultaneous user updates.
For example, the DAORA Distributed Object Store (DOORS) is based on a group of servers that replicate read / write access to any object and use a mechanism to allow client caching of frequently used objects. This mechanism ensures data availability despite voluntary separation or network failover. DOORS objects are structured on the basis of object frameworks that divide object operations into various aspects, such as: B. Awareness support and parallelism control, disassemble.
