ECM and collaboration vendors address file sharing in the cloud

Sponsored by IBM

Enterprise content management is one of many technologies that are evolving to meet the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce that demands secure, user-friendly tools. New business processes are pushing ECM and collaboration vendors to make trends like file sharing in the cloud possible. While the cloud has plenty of appeal, companies must make sure they address the downsides, including security and the hassle of migration.

In the first article, reporters Nathan Lamb and Lauren Horwitz take a look at the mobile abilities and struggles of the ECM and collaboration market. Users and analysts report that mobile and cloud competencies are important but lacking. Next, Horwitz presents two companies' ECM paths -- one to SharePoint Online and the other to an updated on-premises tool. Horwitz closes it out with stories from different companies about how going paperless has made their work processes easier.
