Most large enterprises rely far too heavily on shared drives and e-mail as the primary mechanisms for storing and sharing enterprise documents. While these solutions work somewhat effectively when dealing with moderate volumes of documents, they cannot scale to meet the evolving needs of most companies. In today’s world, document volumes are growing exponentially, resulting in skyrocketing management costs and inability to find relevant information.
Microsoft has responded to these challenges by delivering an integrated solution that extends document management to all employees. By recognizing that a document’s lifecycle begins the moment it is created and does not end until it is destroyed, organizations can achieve wide adoption and enforcement of enterprise standards, resulting in decreased management costs and reduced corporate risk.
