There should be an image here!Strong collaboration is key to the success of any medium to large enterprise these days. With the economy not being what it once was, now more than ever everyone needs to be in tune with those surrounding them in the work place.

And like collaboration, the iPhone is fast becoming a workplace favorite despite the mixed feelings of many CFOs out there. Still, despite any shortcomings, the applications appear to more than make up for any other concerns.

Take an application for the iPhone known as SocialText. Taking its enterprise collaboration abilities to the iPhone means that each person with the app in their possession instantly knows what is taking place as it happens. Working a bit like Twitter but without the silly spam messages, applications like SocialText mean enterprise users are able to keep up on the latest without relying on email exclusively.
