Document Management, The Future and the Cloud

May 11, 2012

There is a lot of serious negotiating going on regarding the future of document management and the inevitable movement to the Cloud.  Transitioning to the Cloud eases the burden of ownership and upkeep.  Yet, there are other issues to consider such as security, compliance, and buy-in from employees.  A full discussion is provided in the story, “Does the Future of Document Management Lie in the Cloud?”

The author discusses the needs of IT managers, and even conveys that IT managers are finding their users to have increasingly higher expectations:

They also want secure remote access from anywhere, and not just via computers, either: smartphones, netbooks, and tablet computers must be full participants. Corporate management has its requirements as well: reliable backup and resilient business continuity, so that a localised outage doesn’t leave information workers idle. And both groups never want to be told that storage has filled up.

So how does an organization juggle the needs of user experience, security, compliance, and storage?  Many third-party solutions are emerging that do a good job of attending to all of these needs, while providing continuous updates as the technology progresses.  One such third-party solution that we like is Fabasoft Mindbreeze.  Their Fabasoft Mindbreeze Enterprise solution is highly adaptable and intuitive, all while performing well against the competition in the Cloud.

In its integration with Mindbreeze Insite, Fabasoft Mindbreeze Enterprise utilizes the power of Wikipedia and internal sources to feed public-facing websites.

Mindbreeze InSite integrates itself smoothly into Mindbreeze’s hybrid model. As before in Fabasoft Folio Cloud and Wikipedia, you can now make your own website searchable in the Cloud with InSite and make this data source instantly available to all internal users.

For users who want to move to the Cloud, but are concerned about potentially negative side effects, consider smart third-party solutions such as those offered by Fabasoft Mindbreeze.
