A few trends have been disrupting the market space:
- Employees discovered new platforms where they could easily create and share unstructured information, within and beyond the company’s firewall, without any control of the company. Social functionalities allowed us to do our job in a less structured but pleasant way, while trying to meet the company’s objectives.
- With everyone going mobile, and the way we tend to work today, access to your information is key, at any time, wherever you are.
- Organizations have been implementing ERP systems to streamline and automate their processes, allowing to work better and more flexible with locally spread plants and offices. The unstructured information (often paper and digital files), did not follow, resulting of piles of paper, overloaded fileshares and mailboxes.
