Cloud-Based Enterprise: From surviving to thriving in a new era of challenges
Every enterprise is dealing with a content deluge. Analysts predict a mind-boggling 50x growth in digital content between 2010 and 2020, with 90% of it unstructured: emails, documents, images, video and more.
Since the dawn of the distributed computing era, enterprises have been contending with the increasing growth of unstructured content. Today’s landscape consists of enterprises that have rationalized and standardized their IT functions, and are now looking for new ways to manage costs and improve quality of service to their customers. For the most part, IT organizations and CIOs are under pressure to meet the needs of rapidly scaling global operations, while maintaining a small infrastructure footprint.
With the explosion of knowledge work, and the ever-increasing need to secure, store, manage and find intellectual property, content management is increasingly recognized as an enterprise-wide need – as a fundamental business necessity instead of a “nice to have.” Today’s enterprises, however, can no longer wait for lengthy development and deployment cycles, and must migrate over to Platform as a Service (PaaS) models that are agile, nimble and extensible to allow them to capture market share and take advantage of the ever-changing business and market conditions.
During this roundtable, we will explore the reasons behind the move to cloud-based enterprise content management, and delve into some of the benefits of making such a transition, including cost savings and efficiencies, better information governance, compliance and control. We will also look at how cloud-based solutions can provide faster time-to-value and provide the agile solution your organization needs to meet your customer demands.
