The acceleration of the Internet of Things is staggering. We’re producing 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day, with 90% of the world’s data created in the last two years. This speed and volume of today’s data and a generation of content producers has fundamentally impacted the modern workplace. As employees ditch the physical world for digital, they’re creating an ever-rising number of online documents - from sales presentations to invoices, standard contracts to finance reports, press releases to blog articles.
About $10,000 is wasted on mismanaging digital assets each year. Like financial asset management, digital asset management (DAM) is all about spreading the wealth and organizing all digital assets in a cohesive way that makes sense for your company.

Most companies take great pride in the products and services that they offer, but they often overlook the one thing they spend more time producing than anything else: documents. Of all the processes that support a company or organization today, the document creation process is one of the most extensive, touching nearly everything: internal communications, customer relations, sales, legal compliance and much more.

Whether it’s correspondence, financials, reports, marketing content, customer data or something else entirely, all that information amounts to your most valuable asset of all. It stands to reason that you need a safe, yet easily accessible place, to keep everything. Enter the age of document management in the cloud.

But how exactly will your organization benefit from the Office 365 productivity suite in terms of increased business performance? Less unnecessary travel? Reduced IT costs?
We all can relate to real life examples of "unwritten covenants" – you know, those responsibilities that friends and family place on you without you knowing if you ever agreed to it, like making a salad for a friend’s dinner party or babysitting your niece or nephew when your sibling decides they want to live a little. We don’t necessarily agree to these things, but they happen anyway and it’s understood that they need to happen to maintain a happy relationship.
