"Email continues to be the most popular form of issuing digital information at 65.5%. The decrease is due to the resurgence in popularity of project extranets which are now the primary issue format of 13.8% of companies. In 2004 project extranets accounted for 2.9% of the issues."
The decrease mentioned is an 11% drop from 76% in Davies’s 2004 survey (or, to put it another way, an 11% increase in use of extranets). Over the past two years, therefore, the proportion of digital information published to extranet systems has grown more than four-fold, to approximately one in seven issues. Clearly, there is still some way to go before extranets become the predominant form of communication, but the signs are encouraging.
