From 67 per cent of enterprises in 2012 to 75 per cent of enterprises in 2013, the cloud has finally started to gain traction. More than ever, companies are using cloud content management systems to collaborate and share their important documents. Unfortunately for enterprises looking to invest in private cloud infrastructure, there are still a number of concerns involved in public clouds that put cloud document management into question. In a recent infographic by Skyhigh, it was determined that 40% of the top 10 file sharing systems that are in used by enterprises are classified as “high risk” services. Here are some myths about public cloud services that give private cloud systems a bad rep:
When you look at the high risk file sharing services, they all exist on the public cloud. One of the main problems with security on a cloud system occurs when admin roles change and access shifts between employees. Sophisticated private cloud document management systems allow you to easily manage admin roles and monitor who has accessed a document and when.
It’s difficult to implement
Like any new SaaS or IT system, implementing a cloud content management system across an organization takes time, although it is less time-intensive than changing a hardware system. Once the system has been implemented however, the system can easily scale with your business so you don’t have to change services.
It’s not reliable enough for large-scale organizations
Many large-scale organizations operating in regulation-heavy industries, like health care and financial services, believe that the cloud does not offer the compliancy regulations they require for document management. Compliancy regulations in many industries are moving towards Electronic Document Management and many private cloud providers offer the compliance coverage you need.
Employee adoption rates will be low
By enabling employees to access documents on their desktop and through their mobile, as well as offering multiple collaboration and sharing opportunities, cloud content management systems like WebPal are easy-to-use.
