Abstract: In this paper, we argue that increased outsourcing of non-core competencies will drive the demand for a new generation of multi-tenanted cloud-based platforms that address the needs of content-centered collaboration between organizations. We introduce the FRACTAL conceptual prototype which has allowed us to evaluate the suitability of current enterprise content management (ECM) technologies for this type of platform. Our early results highlight several areas, particularly around multi-tenancy, where we feel current platforms are inadequate and fundamentally new approaches are required.
