The need to collaborate with co-workers, external partners and clients has always been paramount for organisations, but as the results of the 2015 BCN Annual Industry Survey – which includes responses from over 715 senior IT professionals – make clear, the needs of workers and their employers are changing swiftly.
Flexible working is becoming more mainstream, and as a result the need to provide content collaboration and management capabilities for any device – whether corporate or employee-owned – while maintaining the strongest levels of security and data privacy is becoming not just more important – but essential. In a bid to facilitate more mobile workstyles, organisations are increasingly looking to adopt cloud-based collaboration services because of the many benefits they could bring: greater flexibility and employee productivity, lower CAPEX, and the ability to centralise data governance more effectively are but a handful that come to mind.
But as the survey results also make clear, a number of barriers slowing the adoption of cloud-based collaboration services persist. This whitepaper, sponsored by Sharp Document Solutions and published by BCN, analyses the results of the 2015 BCN Annual Industry Survey to help explain:
- Key trends in collaboration within organisations
- Why organisations are embracing cloud-based collaboration services
- Barriers to cloud-based collaboration adoption
- How cloud-based document management systems can alleviate some of those barriers
