Key takeaways:

  1. Organizations create and store enormous quantities of digital information and these content stores are growing rapidly.
  2. Nearly one-half of this content is stored on corporate file shares, yet most decision makers know little about the content that is stored on these systems.
  3. The result of poor file management is an inability to properly classify information, poor data governance, excessive storage of content, and a negative impact on user productivity.
