Where next for cloud-based document storage?

The past 10 months or so have clarified what we already know: being able to access your data regardless of where you are is vital to the continuity and even survival of your business. Those organisations which still rely upon working with on-site system found themselves facing real problems in accessing information remotely; either because it was locked in a physical filing cabinet, or stored in an unreachable app on a local server.

As a result of having to embrace home working at such short notice, even organisations and businesses which tend to rely upon ‘traditional’ workflow systems are embracing remote working teams and turning to the cloud.

The benefits of cloud working are something that we often talk about in our blog posts: from gains in efficiency and universal access, through to a reduction in costs. However, getting to the point where you’re ready to switch involves thinking about the technology you need. Remember that for remote working to be effective, the right information has to be in the right hands at the right time in order to facilitate decision making or improve efficiency. Making all this happens is where document management services come in.

Although document management might feel like a relatively new concept, in layman’s terms it is simply the integration and aggregation of content from a number of different sources; it’s far easier to do this when documents are stored in the cloud rather than in a physical filing cabinet.

So where next? Moving to a cloud-based document management system will give you the capability to make sure content can flow and be easily shared between different applications, without duplicating, replicating or emitting any data. Unfortunately, seamless content sharing such as this simply isn’t possible with on-premises systems which can keep up with ever-changing legislation and technological developments.
