By synchronizing Dropbox with their on-premises storage, Skullcandy gives employees the freedom to choose the collaboration platform that works best for them while maintaining efficiency and productivity.
For a majority of organizations, migrating files to a single platform for management and collaboration is not possible. Many have brought in newer, cloud-based technologies but remain reliant on their on-premises systems for a variety of reasons—including regulatory compliance, data governance, existing line-of-business-application integrations or legacy investments.
Not a “one-size-fits-all” scenario
Unsurprisingly, content silos create information chaos for many IT departments—but it doesn’t have to be this way. Digital transformation with both new and legacy ECM platforms can become a reality for your business. Syncing systems can enable improved productivity and collaboration without compromising governance or legacy investments.
Meet hybrid content synchronization
SkySync’s bi-directional synchronization engine enables your organization to integrate and synchronize existing on-premises platforms with any cloud service—creating a hybrid environment with the best of both local and cloud-based document management systems.
This enables your business to enhance legacy investments by extending compliance, security, and control to all content repositories while empowering your users to readily access and collaborate on content from anywhere on any device.
Skullcandy enables platform freedom with SkySync
We let people choose the storage platform they like best and where they can be the most successful.
Enable your workers
Information workers spend nearly 30% of their day creating, finding, or reading documents. You can reduce the time and money wasted wading through disparate systems by eliminating silos and making enterprise content more accessible—increasing productivity without overhauling your existing IT infrastructure.
Maintain a secure, on-premises platform as your source of truth while enabling a modern and mobile workforce. Workers can keep the information they need at their fingertips, without lugging their laptops around, waiting on VPN connections, or relying on emailing the latest documents to themselves to stay current on the road. File sharing and collaboration across remote and on-site workers is now seamless and secure.
Control information chaos
More than 59% of enterprises must maintain some of their data on-premises to maintain regulatory compliance. If you’re in a highly regulated industry required to comply with regulations including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other compliance mandates, you can ensure your information is secure and compliant while enabling users to securely collaborate with external parties and across multiple devices.
Increasingly strict privacy laws, including Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the forthcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the US, are placing more responsibility on businesses to maintain control and oversight over user data. Integration and synchronization of disparate platforms make it much easier to inventory and manage data, maintain compliance, and avoid serious fines.
