The AppGap is a blog and resource on the future of work and how new tools are addressing age-old challenges of organization, collaboration, and creation. But it is also an idea: that there remains a gap between the toolset that exists and what’s needed.
This site’s intent: to serve as a resource for shedding light on the tools, trends, processes, and practices that can help and provide a forum for related discussions. Its intended audience: those in organizations, small, medium, or larger, who are looking for guidance, hoping to keep their ear to the ground, and seeking out answers that help them do their work more efficiently and profitably.
Here you’ll find commentary on effective tools and business practices, observations on emerging innovations, prognostications on where it’s all headed, reviews of new products, and pointers to tips, mash-ups, and the occasional amusing diversion.
We hope you tune in often and engage frequently – your insight, learnings, and tips greatly enrich this conversation.
We invite you to read our blog policy.
