As a point of reference for the debate of the absurd, I remember sitting in a meeting with a major computer manufacturer many years ago as a very young intern listening to a heated discussion among the sales and marketing executives regarding whether or not users need a desktop computer. Obviously, we all know what side of that debate won. Fast forward through lots of similar crazy technology debates that I won’t mention out of respect for the well meaning but misguided to today where some are now debating whether or not Information Governance and/or eDiscovery software should run in the cloud.
Instead of listing out both sides of the debate and weighing the pros and cons, I am going to “cut to the chase” and state the 10 reasons why Information Governance and/or eDiscovery should be in the Cloud.
- Better Security
- Better Support for Managing and Complying with Country Data Protection Laws
- Easier to Utilize the Most Current Big Data Technology
- Easier to Integrate with other Cloud Based Technology
- Better User Experience
- Easier to Upgrade and Enhance
- Easier to Offer Integrated Solutions on Portable Devices
I am sure that there are many other reasons. And, I welcome input. However, I think that this list should provide reason enough as to why Information Governance and/or eDiscovery should be in the Cloud.
