Cloud Computing and File Sharing in 2018

Cloud Computing File Sharing

Big names in the file sharing field–formerly called Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) and now known as Content Collaboration Platforms (CCP)–have rebranded themselves to sound more productive and efficient, but there is still an issue of clunky, cumbersome, and costly migrations and no instant access until syncing has happened. Even Sharepoint is being marketed as a web-based collaborative platform.

The Problems with Popular File Sharing Services (CCPs)

It happens to all of us, from the board room to the mail room, you are on deadline and need to share a report update with a remote user across the Enterprise. You have been told by Legal and by IT to not send it via regular email. What to do?

Depending on who you talk to, there are several different answers to that question. Production may tell you to just use Dropbox, but then the important document is in Dropbox’s cloud, which means you have to login and sync, and after all that, your recipient still needs a Dropbox account to view it.

Legal may tell you to just use Google Drive or Box. This method again requires uploading the document to a third-party cloud provider where the company loses control of its data and where the recipient has to have a compatible account to view the document or be granted editing capabilities on the other end. You still have a need to collaborate in real time. Google Drive may be free, but you have to sync first to share it and migrate your data, which means losing control, legal retention and ownership. Box and other services are also an option but again require extensive planning, migration and cost–$15 per user or more.

CRM may tell you how great Huddle or other web platform products are, but again you have to sync and migrate in order to share assets, and the cost can go up to $15 to $20/user.
