Cloud Enterprise Content Management: Syncplicity

Cloud Enterprise Content Management: Syncplicity


Though online content management and sharing does not necessarily equals to cloud computing, it can be implemented without cloud computing, yet it is an integral feature of IaaS. A lot of users and companies are now using some sort of content management system in-house and are probably looking for a way to bring move that to the cloud. Cloud content management however is not new to people used to dealing with distributed team members, an ECM becomes a necessity at that situation and cloud ECM would be the most logical way to go. Services like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive are all exceptionally well suited to small teams that share and work with smaller files. The biggest benefit of all is that these are free for those users with small space requirements; otherwise the pay per use policy comes into play for some of them.

But for enterprise-sized organizations, these solutions would not be enough as they need to transfer and keep track of hundreds of files totaling to hundreds of gigabytes per day. This makes ECM managers struggle to keep corporate information assets safe and compliant while also making users quite happy with the workflow. The problem with the latter is that individual employees have different tastes and they may be accustomed to user-grade services like the ones mentioned above, and the currently offered by the IT department might not be doing the job for them, at least in the way that they like. This places IT in a particularly unfavourable position where they have to restrict and block access to these sharing services, acting as a gatekeeper, because they have no control over and no policies for these services. This prevents the users who are currently outside the company network from accessing vital work data and preventing work to be accomplished.

Syncplicity is here to change that. It’s Enterprise Edition introduces “frictionless file sharing” that your users will actually want to adopt for their personal use. This is nowhere like those tedious and hard to use apps that IT has been forcing down the throats of its users. But with Syncplicity, users will be pleasantly surprised with the ease of use and the look of its interface and it will make the work activities involving it easier and more efficient, hence removing the “friction” with IT, the user experience will be pleasant overall. And IT will complete control over security, policies and storage. Everybody wins.

Symplicity Enterprise Edition has the following features:

  • There is a choice to use cloud storage or on-premise storage using EMC’s other offerings, EMC Atmos object storage or EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS.
  • Access to files at local speeds using geo-replication capabilities. Supports for “Adaptive Authorization” which allows IT to require different levels of authentication based on the location of the IP addresses.
  • Allows for 2-factor authentication, single sign on (SSO) with Active Directory or any SAML-based authentication services.
