Data is an important asset for any company or office. Data storage is a key component in the modern world, especially for record-keeping. Policies, records, and other frequently used files are to be easily accessible. The older the company, the larger is the volume of records and the more data you’ll be storing. Are you someone who relies on the traditional method of paper files and storing them in physical cabinets at your office?
Let us see whether the age-old system requires a revamp or not.
Physical document storage is perhaps the most inefficient method in modern times. Why? Let us analyze the concerns with physical storage on two levels: Macro-level and Micro level.
A few concerns with physical storage at the macrolevel are listed below:-
This brings us to the micro-level concerns regarding the physical storage of your office documents and files.
If you are in-charge of files and record keeping please ask yourself the following questions:-
If you are not able to come up with satisfying answers to the above questions, it is time for you to change your traditional paper filing system to digital data storage. Undoubtedly, the way ahead is digitizing your documents and storing them digitally using electronic document management systems.
Digitizing your documents is an essential step in this ultra modern century. In order to phase out manual-based file sending, receiving, storing and retrieving inefficiencies, you may upgrade from physical paper filing to digital storage.
There are two ways to store your digital documents.
One way is to set up on-premise servers (hardware storage) and store entire data in them. It will not take up space like the large filing cabinets you had to use for storing physical documents earlier. With digital documents, you can save space, reduce costs and bring better regulatory compliance. Digital documents are more safe and secure than conventional paper documents.
Therefore the best way to store data electronically is by hiring a service provider who can securely store your data as cloud storage. In both cloud and hardware storage methods the company data is stored and kept on servers. Then what is the difference? The big difference relies on the location of the servers where the data is stored. On-premise servers will be at your company location whereas with cloud storage your data will be stored securely on servers at a different location. Therefore with cloud storage, you don't use up the physical space of your company for storing digital documents.
The cloud service providers are then responsible for your documents, their storage, retrieval, maintenance and security of the system.
