Move Away from File Shares and Organize Enterprise Information
You need a taxonomy, a plan, and a governance strategy.Book This Workshop
An organization without a strategy for unstructured information:
- Suffers from information overload; too many files, on too many shared drives, and in too many repositories.
- Is concerned with the lack of control of information in the enterprise.
- Doesn’t know how to start implementing ECM, SharePoint, or Enterprise Search.
A strategy for unstructured information in the enterprise:
- Balances the needs of different stakeholders: users and the business.
- Contributes to revenue growth and creates new value.
- Improves efficiency and operating margin.
- Responds to enterprise demand.
- Future-proofs the enterprise.
