Alex Gorbansky Featured in CMSWire
The release of Microsoft SharePoint 2016 was one of the biggest tech stories of the past week. Billed by some as “the future of collaboration”, Microsoft seem to have made some progress on file sharing, search, and overall user experience.
With so much written about SharePoint 2016, some of the most important questions about the release have been lost amidst the noise. To really get to the bottom of these new capabilities, David Roe of CMSWire sought out the opinions of the leading SharePoint and enterprise content management experts in business today. Among them – Docurated CEO Alex Gorbansky.
In an interesting appraisal, Alex explained that while SharePoint 2016 was a step in the right direction – it certainly does not solve the enterprise content management challenge.
“Microsoft’s latest take on collaboration is undoubtedly a step in the right direction, but ultimately it falls short. The new SharePoint solves yesterday’s problems quite well, but does not even begin to address the content challenge companies face today.
Today, content is stored across a range of locations like Box, Google Drive, File Shares, Dropbox, Confluence and email. Content storage is now heterogeneous and that is a fact. The new SharePoint has expanded the borders of Microsoft’s walled garden, but it is still a walled garden.
The fact that content stored across those other locations remains outside the scope of the new SharePoint means it cannot solve the enterprise content challenge. To succeed, companies need a heterogeneous solution that spans all content systems and provides the same level of relevance and intelligence across disparate enterprise silos.”
