The last few years have seen an influx of ‘disruptive’ new tech startups entering the marketplace with all sorts of software as a service (SaaS) and app solutions for small businesses and larger enterprises. On the face of it, this is great news. However, the phrase “spoilt for choice” could also apply, and might even be causing paralysis in cloud service adoption.
With regards to document management systems (DMS), centralisation has been the goal for many years; however, the emergence of new tech with broad integration capabilities, such as SAP Modules and buzzy newcomer Slack, are turning that idea on its head.
The diffusion of data, documents and devices is rife these days, so it’s no longer practical for cloud-based document management systems to try to apply rigid rules and processes – after all, the tree that bends with the breeze stands the longest.
