Insights:

Organizations worldwide are quickly adopting cloud computing in order to stay ahead of a hyper-competitive business landscape. The immediate draw to cloud computing is clear — reduced total cost of ownership and less hardware for IT administrators to maintain. Utilizing the cloud to host Microsoft SharePoint through Microsoft Office 365 can significantly reduce cost and improve global access to SharePoint content.

With Office 365, Microsoft is charged with supporting stringent service level agreements (SLAs) and upkeep of Office 365 hosted assets. This can be an advantage to most organizations that would not be able to meet these same SLAs with internal resources. However, this also means organizations have limited ability to control cloud-based assets, as Microsoft restricts the administrative controls available to reduce risks associated with storing content in Office 365. For instance, organizations are no longer allowed to install third-party or custom solutions to which they may have grown accustomed in on-premises environments that provided key administrative functionality to simplify permissions and content management across sites or site collections. Despite this reduced control, organizations must still find ways to implement organizational governance and compliance policies for content security; content and site structure; and data recovery. It is imperative that an organization's infrastructure be as nimble and flexible as the knowledge workers it supports, in order to properly accommodate evolving business requirements.

With DocAve Online, giving up control over your physical servers doesn't mean giving up control over users, permissions, and content.
