Bridging the Divide – Hybrid ECM Solutions

Cloud computing offers attractive benefits for organizations, as public agencies and private businesses shift more of their applications and computing power to the cloud. Analyst IDC predicts that by 2020, 40% of the information in the digital universe will be in the cloud, and when AIIM surveyed IT leaders recently, nearly half said they expect the cloud to be the de facto deployment for document management in the next several years. However, while most organizations will certainly embrace cloud technology to manage a range of data and applications, it’s unlikely that large organizations will move all of their data and applications to the cloud anytime soon. As a result, the new IT environment often includes a combination of on-premise and off-premise applications. Another way of describing that environment is the private cloud plus the public cloud, which Gartner defines as a “hybrid cloud.”
