Every year the technology industry is hit with buzzwords and trends, some stay while others fade out quickly. However, “The Cloud” has been around for many years and shows no signs of disappearing any time soon. What’s more, it appears that the cloud might be getting an upgrade thanks to new technology. For example, Microsoft recently announced that it is using AI to cut the cloud’s electric bill. Moreover, other companies are making great advancements in this field, improving this technology’s offering in numerous ways.

Neocol and FileFacets today announced a global strategic partnership that adds the FileFacets Platform to the Neocol Cloud Innovation Stack. Any organization that has formal sets of content repositories from Microsoft SharePoint, Opentext Content Server, Laserfiche, Documentum, IBM FileNet and other legacy on-premise content repositories and seamlessly learn their current state.

Through this partnership, Neocol, the leading system integrator in helping organizations transform their digital work, and FileFacets, the leading online privacy compliance and enterprise analytics platform, will help clients quickly and at lowest possible cost understand what the total corporate document landscape includes and have a way to best mitigate compliance and infosec exposure in the future.

“For any technology modernization to take place, we have to know what we are starting with as a baseline,” states Tom Rieger, Chief Strategy Officer at Neocol. “In working with FileFacets, we’re delivering new ways for our clients to learn or validate their current content state to minimize risk and have it all have a costing model that fits within the world of software-as-a-service – rather that content is in formal repositories, on network drives or even on desktops/laptops.”

FileFacets platform enables organizations to perform sophisticated data discovery and advanced content search of networks, servers, desktops and laptops, identifying to protect sensitive corporate information and Personally Identifiable Information (PII), removing Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial data (ROT) and facilitating the secure transfer of data between repositories. The solution is able to extract metadata by running optical character recognition and machine learning against any combination of content types.

“Businesses are adopting cloud-based content platforms at a rapid pace but often struggle with knowing what they have, is their risk and how much should be migrated. We’re excited to work with Neocol and be part of their Innovation Stack, a true expert in digital transformation, as they empower clients to transform their business processes and client experiences,” said Chris Perram, CEO at FileFacets.
