Enterprise Cloud Collaboration Requires More than ‘Share This Document’
Content in the cloud is a fantastic opportunity for enterprises. The cloud’s promise of access to what you need anytime and anywhere is a giant step forward. But to be effective, cloud content and collaboration companies must be able to deliver any content that is desired. The problem that “share and sync” companies like Box, Dropbox, YouSendIt and others face is that they can only deliver content that one person makes available to another. This injects disruption into collaboration. A better way is to take the friction out of the process and ensure that any content a user needs is available and accessible while remaining secure.
This is what our cloud content company is pioneering. Digitiliti takes a page from the automatic backup playbook, combines it with enterprise content management and archiving expertise and delivers a frictionless experience to enterprise cloud collaboration.
Our 3-tier architecture of client, cache and cloud removes the need for end users to “check-in” content by automatically ingesting all business content from any machine or device they’re on. Content is simultaneously stored at the cloud cache layer for instant availability (through search, web or desktop integration) as well as in the cloud vault layer for retention-and-lifecycle-aware storage and disaster recovery. Everything is globally de-duplicated and secured through native integration with enterprise LDAP and Active Directory as well as deep encryption at rest and in transit. This frictionless approach means that users keep access to anything they’re entitled see, from anywhere in the organization. Setting up collaboration collections becomes a quick matter of identifying the content that is already there and zipping off a notification to the team that it’s ready. This is a wonderful departure from the hope-its-there approach of the sync-and-share companies.
