Becoming the well-integrated content company (and combating AIUTLVFS)
By Lance Shaw on Nov 11, 2013
Every single day, each of us create more and more content. Sometimes it is brand new material and many times it is iterations of existing content, but no one would argue that information and content growth is growing at an almost exponential rate.
With all this content being created and stored, a number of problems naturally arise. One of the most common issues that users run into is "Am I Using The Latest Version of this File Syndrome", or AIUTLVFS. This insidious syndrome is all too common and results in ineffective, poor or downright wrong business decisions being made. When content or files are unavailable or incorrect within the scope of key business processes, the chance for erroneous and costly business decisions is magnified even further.
For many companies, the ideal scenario is to be able to connect multiple business systems, both old and new, into one common content repository. Not only does this reduce content duplication, it also helps guarantee that everyone in various departments is working off the proverbial "same page". Sounds simple - but for many organizations, the proliferation of file shares, SharePoint sites, and other storage silos of content keep the dream of a more efficient business a distant one.
