Instead of looking to replace SharePoint, we are regularly asked by executives to provide control and compliance around it—which is what Adhere allows us to deliver.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 13, 2015
Zia Consulting, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Intelligent Document Capture solutions, has announced a special seminar in London to launch their Adhere for Alfresco solution on May 21st, 2015. The event will be co-sponsored by Alfresco and will discuss enterprise solutions for SharePoint integration and synchronization, governance, federated search, workflow, and content security.
The leadership in many corporations has become frustrated with the sprawl seen in SharePoint and other repositories. In a recent ECM market study by the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM), 93% of respondents stated that they use SharePoint in some manner within their organization. In an interesting contradiction, only 11% of them see their SharePoint deployment as a success—and yet over 75% still have a “strong commitment” to SharePoint.
Because multiple systems are being utilized by employees, documents become harder to find and manage which leads to multiple versioning and a lack of control for critical content. However, users within an organization often prefer to use SharePoint for collaboration, citing ease-of-use and familiarity with the software. Additionally, when companies have made a significant investment in SharePoint, they are not eager to completely remove it, even as they recognize multiple issues.
"Internationally, across both the public and private sector, we've seen that SharePoint isn't going to simply disappear from organizations," said Mike Mahon, CEO and President of Zia Consulting. "Instead of looking to replace SharePoint, we are regularly asked by executives to provide control and compliance around it—which is what Adhere allows us to deliver."
The London event will feature a special guest speaker, Yoran Sirkis, CEO of Covertix—a market leader in data-centric security. Mr. Sirkis will review the current state of the content security market and discuss specific case studies in this space. Attendees will see how this solution works with current systems to “solve SharePoint” with an intuitive, user-friendly interface. This event will take place on May 21st, 2015 at 1 Lombard Street Restaurant from 12:00 - 3:00 PM.
