Organizations today are aggressively looking to free up their office resources and optimize it to the hilt. Papers and files have always been the worst enemy for an organization that is looking to grow it’s business and cut down on internal costs. They affect both the space complexity and time complexity and are probably the greatest factors affecting the hidden costs. So, a document management system is something that these organizations are banking on to a great extent. They are scanning and uploading all the existing documents in a central repository (DMS), from which they can be searched and retrieved as and when needed.
However, if saving up space is one of the true concerns, there is one problem which the DMS presents: It is after all a software application and needs a server to run on. So, all the space you free up by digitizing those files and papers are gone because you chose to buy a server for the DMS? This whole exercise kinds of beats the end purpose, doesn’t it?
There is, however, a very simple solution to this. Host your DMS application on Cloud. Now, your office is truly free of excess baggage and you can do whatever you want with the freed up space and resources. But, space alone is just not the reason to host your DMS on cloud. You are switching to an easy to use Opex model, which won’t burn a huge hole in your pocket. You can access your DMS on the fly, given you have the requisite credentials. So, next time you are thinking of playing it smart and adopting a DMS for your organization, play it a little smarter and go the extra way: Switch to cloud!Tags:
