The future of Information Management
Most organisations already have multiple systems, including shared network folders, ECM systems and file sharing services such as Dropbox. Some are on-premises and some are in the cloud. The larger the organisation the more complicated it can become so many fear that adding another system could actually make it worse.
M-Files not only enables your business to easily find what you need across any repository or system, but also enriches and re-purposes the information located anywhere without disrupting existing systems and processes.
What if it didn’t matter where a document was stored or which system manages it? Imagine if information could be easily organised and managed based on its value and relevance.

Too many information silos
Managing the information and data within an organisation is more complicated than ever before. The volume of data that the average organisation creates has risen significantly and it's often stored in a wide range of different systems or spread across shared network drives which makes it difficult and time consuming to find and control. For employees multiple different interfaces to learn slow down user adoption and end-up decreasing productivity. M-Files helps make a organisation's information environment simple and less of a drain on IT resources.
What vs. Where
Relevance not location
The historical approach to Information Management was concerned about where the information was stored, which folder, which library, which system? When an organisation has multiple systems, the problem becomes exponentially difficult. The new approach to Information Management is not concerned with the location of information, only what it is, why it is needed and the relevance to the task at hand. The new Information Management is dynamic and personalised; information appears differently dependent on different roles, teams and individuals. It's intuitive; everyone knows what they're working on.
The Intelligent Metadata Layer
The new generation of Information Management is so much more than just a system to store and process data. By leveraging the an open architecture that supports best-in-class analytics, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning. A powerful, new metadata-based approach creates an "Intelligent Metadata Layer" that unifies multiple systems and repositories based on context while the actual content and data remains in place, with existing systems and processes undisturbed. Information is classified and organised automatically, and the system adapts and improves over time based on key metrics and user behavior.
