Hi, Paul speaking.
UPDATE Oct 5th, 2017: Check out my colleague Paul Kleinknecht's response: http://blog.shinydocs.com/note-from-our-vp-on-file-shares
If you appreciate and understand the need for information governance, you should hate your file shares. Users find them easy to use, but shared network drives and folders pose a major threat to data security and governance. Most organizations site operational efficiency as a top priority so the idea of executing on more workflows is compelling if not crucial. Having 85% of all corporate data sitting in file shares works directly against the concept of efficiency. The enterprise needs to find a way to understand and harness this data.
If your company has OpenText Content Server, odds are your employees used it less this month than e-mail, shared drives, cloud sync and share tools, or their My Documents folder. Reality: less than 20% of documents will ever find their way into your Content Server repository.
Why exactly are shared drives still so widely used? Shared network folders impose a significant cost to organizations that rely on information and are not suitable as record-keeping systems. Sure they're familiar, easy to use, and hugely convenient, but that isn’t enough to tip the scales in their favor. Let’s consider some of the problems with shared drives that has 9 out of 10 organizations looking to scale back or remove theirs entirely.
Shinydrive marries the flexibility and easy-to-use shared drive interface with the power of Content Server to manage your files and apply rules.
How much risk are you exposed to as an organization living with documents out of a structured repository. You know you’re sitting on information in legacy systems and shared drives. How much information is gathering on users desktops because they refuse to jump through the hoops necessary to upload information to the ECM. No one has time to be constantly uploading versions on documents being actively working on.
