Companies are trying to get a handle on the exploding volume and evolving kinds of information they have stored -- whether in email, documents or other unstructured data -- on the company intranet or in traditional "records" with transactional data and customer information.

We want them neatly packaged and stored efficiently, but we also want other items that are attached to those records to be just as accessible. SharePoint is a double-edged sword there."

But SharePoint on-premises and SharePoint in the cloud have made major strides in aggregating data sources and providing a scalable environment to store and manage this information. One of the key breakthroughs has been in getting a handle on the different kinds of data that reside throughout an enterprise.

"We can pull a batch of records and all the other objects associated with those records," Robinson said.
