Today's workers are familiar with Dropbox, Google Drive, or one of the many file sharing options available on the cloud. Many ask their IT department, why should I have to switch to an on-premises system for work documents? Novell argues there are some reasons to use an on-premises file sharing solution for business documents, and users should evaluate their situation before abandoning internal servers.
From time to time, you may read about cloud security being a mild concern, but for the most part the cloud is favorably hyped as an all-encompassing option. Once you dig below the surface and compare options, however, there are user advantages that go along with the IT department's drive toward an on-premises file sharing solution.
The end goal with such collaboration technology is to enable workers to be more productive while keeping work environments more secure and manageable. Good on-premises file sharing tools are just as easy to use as the cloud-based solutions you might be familiar with, so consider how you and your organization can benefit from the following points.
