Cloud-Based Collaboration: How organisations are fundamentally changing the way they collaborate

Cloud-Based-Collaboration-CThe 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
