SharePoint is now an important element of the information management infrastructure in many of the world's largest organizations. In many cases, these organizations must now consider how SharePoint, and the massive (and growing) amount of content it creates, will be managed as well as how it will integrate within the broader information infrastructure.
User adoption has always been something of an issue. Despite having ready access to SharePoint, many users cling to their file-shares, or more recently, adopt other ways of collaborating and sharing documents via web-based services. A third of the organizations surveyed feel that their SharePoint project has struggled to meet their original expectations, and a further 26% feel progress has stalled. Is this because of poor training and governance, restricted functionality of SharePoint, or simply the inevitable result of being the first ECM system to move beyond the safer boundaries of compliance-based aoperations? As we will see in this report, it is likely to be a combination of all of these.
We’re experiencing a data explosion. By 2020 the data we create and copy annually will reach 44 trillion gigabytes.1 As this data disseminates into the workplace, companies add hardware and software systems to store, protect and manage it all. While data can help solve business problems, data is most helpful when it reaches those who can use it. Companies need to build Microsoft SharePoint apps that integrate with other line-of-business (LOB) systems so users can take full advantage of this data explosion.
But the reality of creating apps that integrate data across organizational systems presents an intimidating challenge. To integrate multiple isolated data sources into an application that transforms data into useful information requires technical expertise, coding and ongoing maintenance. Integration also raises security and governance concerns. So it’s no surprise that only 47 percent of SharePoint users have connected their SharePoint apps with other systems.2 As a result, nearly
The cloud is here to stay, and Microsoft SharePoint users are finally making the move. Since 2013, the number of SharePoint users with intentions of moving their SharePoint sites to the cloud has doubled, according to a 2015 AIIM survey.1 Many users are making the change to reduce IT costs, improve access for external partners and increase mobility.
Casey, IT manager at a mid-size healthcare organization, is one of those users planning to move his organization to a cloud-based SharePoint infrastructure. But because Casey works in healthcare, he’s especially concerned about the security of the cloud. And he’s not alone with that concern — AIIM reports that 62 percent of SharePoint users cite security as their biggest concern when considering a cloud or hybrid solution for SharePoint.
More specifically, many SharePoint users are concerned about the following three areas of security in the cloud:
• Identity and access
• Data protection and privacy
• Compliance and governance
