A recent press release reports, “New research from secure collaboration provider Intralinks and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) examines the progress towards content-driven digital transformation and data privacy compliance in the enterprise. To stay relevant in an increasingly digital world, companies are either starting to or are currently in the process of transforming their digital environment to improve collaboration and information sharing. Meanwhile, data privacy legislation, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is redefining how data can be shared across country borders.”

The release goes on, “The report from Intralinks and the CSA, Collaboration in the Era of Digital Transformation: Barriers to Entry, expands on these trends and ultimately identifies three crucial barriers companies are facing as they look to achieve these dual goals and maintain their competitive edge: Outmoded and clunky enterprise content management systems (ECMs); Data siloes that inhibit collaboration between departments and stakeholders; Data privacy and compliance worries.”

It adds, “The report sheds light on these barriers, as well as content sharing and data privacy trends. Key takeaways from the survey results include: Of the IT and security professionals surveyed, a full 80% admit that their company is still using traditional file folders to organize and share content. 57% of respondents think their company’s content tools like ECM, cloud storage and SharePoint are siloed and difficult to connect. 74% of respondents are either not very confident or not confident at all that they will meet the compliance deadline for the GDPR in 2018.”
