The 8C Model on Enterprise Information Management is the basic model for the organisation of the teaching material of the UCC-CT. The inner core contains typical groupware features (functionality). The outer ring shows management areas that are concerned with Enterprise Information Management.

Williams, Susan P.; Schubert, Petra (2011): An Empirical Study of Enterprise 2.0 in Context, Proceedings of the 24th International Bled eConference, Bled, Slovenia, 2011.

The features of the inner core have been classified in the so called Evaluation Matrix.

Evaluation Matrix
The Evaluation Matrix for the 8C Model for Enterprise Information Management contains typical features of collaborative software.
The Matrix is based on the inner core of the 8C Model which was developed by Prof. Dr. Susan Williams in March 2010 and subsequently refined.
The Matrix and the supporting Excel Sheet was developed jointly by Prof. Dr. Susan Williams and Prof. Dr. Petra Schubert for evaluation of software products and has been used by industry and for teaching.

The Excel File (in this Quickr Library) contains the current version of the feature list.
