Microsoft deepens links with Groove

Microsoft and Groove Networks took their relationship a step closer yesterday with the announcement that the companies plan to integrate Groove Workspace with Microsoft SharePoint Team Services.

The forthcoming combined Microsoft/Groove team-based collaboration offering will be designed to support online and offline use, provide automatic synchronisation and work securely across corporate firewalls.

Groove Networks will deliver the offering later this year in the form of an integration kit that integrates SharePoint Team Services with Groove Workspace.

This latest product integration follows Microsoft's $51m (£32.6m) investment in Groove last year as well as several co-operative technology development initiatives.

Built on a decentralised platform, Groove's Workspace collaboration product aims to facilitate direct connections between geographically dispersed workers by creating secure, shared workspaces.

The SharePoint Team Services/Groove Workspace integration kit will be available to customers via Groove Networks' distribution channels.
