Why you need to Eliminate Information Silos

Storing file data in the cloud is a major factor driving cloud adoption in 2021. Forrester reports that more than half of European enterprise decision makers say they use a cloud platform. Why? It is because enterprises need the capacity to support high-performance workloads and large volumes of unstructured data. But moving your documentation from on-premise to cloud is just the beginning, the true optimization is how to structure the documentation efficiently in the cloud.


In today's digital landscape, the adoption of cloud storage within organizations is growing exponentially. This is especially true for quantity-driven industries such as high-tech electronics, metal fabrication, wholesale distribution, and automotive. It is not uncommon for organizations to operate with two or more public cloud platforms to store and manage files, think DropBox, Amazon Web Services (AWS), FileCloud.

Operating across multiple clouds may make management, deployment, security, and policy enforcement difficult, as well as inadvertently create information silos. Manufacturing processes involve constant collaboration among several departments as products and related product documentation are manufactured and written as processes move forward.  If your documentation is restricted to one system that does not communicate with your ongoing processes, it will make your operation more inefficient, and the margin for error rises.

If these scenarios sound familiar, it's time to rethink how you're handling your file related to processes: 

  • Production needs drawings and measurements for an order, but is it the right version?
  • Finance needs to process purchase orders, but where and why along the process had the price changed for the customer?

For manufacturing companies, having valid production information such as CAD drawings and 3D models are crucial to customer success. Making this information readily accessible across the enterprise is one of the key pillars of modern warehouse management. 


What smart filing management looks like



A good file management system should have features that add traceability to production orders and the cloud infrastructure to store and handle high volumes of information. Integrating differentiating workflows into a secure, scalable, and powerful platform makes sense for industries that need a high degree of control over their operations.
