Enterprise File Collaboration Market Landscape

Collaboration is a huge concept, even narrowing it down to enterprise file collaboration (EFC) is still a big undertaking. Many vendors are using “collaboration” in their marketing materials yet they mean many different things by it, ranging from simple business interaction to sophisticated groupware to data sharing and syncing on a wide scale. The result is a good deal of market confusion.

Frankly, vendors selling file collaboration into the enterprise cannot afford massive customer confusion because selling file collaboration into the enterprise is already an uphill battle. First, customers – business end-users – are resistant to changing their Dropbox and Dropbox-like file share applications. As far as the users are concerned their sharing is working just fine between their own devices and small teams.

IT is very concerned about this level of consumer-level file sharing and if they are not, they should be. But IT faces a battle when it attempts to wean thousands of end-users off of Dropbox on the users’ personal devices. There must be a business advantage and clear usability for users who are required to adopt a corporate file sharing application on their own device.

IT must also have good reasons to deploy corporate file sharing using the cloud. From their perspective the Dropboxes of the world are fueling the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon. They need to replace consumer-level file collaboration applications with an enterprise scale application and its robust management console. However, while IT may be anxious about BYOD and insecure file sharing it is not usually the most driving need on their full agenda. They need to understand how an EFC solution can solve a very large problem, and why they need to take advantage of the solution now. 

What is the solution? Enterprise file collaboration (EFC) with: 1) high scalability, 2) security, 3) control, 4) usability, and 5) compliance. In this landscape report we will discuss these five factors and the main customer drivers for this level of enterprise file collaboration.
 
Finally, we will discuss the leading vendors that offer enterprise file collaboration products and see how they stack up against our definition.

Think Beyond Simple Sync and Share

Providing a safe alternative to public cloud-based file sync-and-share services is a good idea, but be prepared to expand those services to enhance other business processes. Cloud-based files services like Dropbox have changed the game of file data access. Making file data more accessible is a long-standing problem that was first addressed by consumer-level products that were free of enterprise encumbrances.
