Due to the advent of technology and office structures getting far more complex and modern, there has always been an increasing demand for effectively managing the data that is generated by employees using different software’s. There has been a boon in the number of data and document management companies providing extensive software and hardware solutions to the various demands generated by small, medium and large sized organizations. Document management is a set of computers and software applications which store, manage and track electronic documents that is generated within the database of a company. Document management process allows data to be stored, modified and managed according to the preference of the user but lacks the record retention ability for managing records. Some of the main aspects of this technology are audit trails, check in/ checkout controls, rollback, summarisation etc.
Document management system enables the connectivity of all the servers within the organization wherein one server can be assigned as the master computer which enables the editing, processing and retrieving of the data from one central location. This is particularly useful in ensuring that the data is not manipulated by an external or unauthorized user. With the availability of companies and experts who can guide you and your company with their data management services, it eventually reduces the dependability of the organization on various expensive individual software applications that were earlier used for handling complex data of huge capacity. One of the most convenient devices that have been widely used by individuals and organizations for taking a back up of their precious and valuable data is the SSD or the Solid State Drive/ Disk. It uses integrated circuit assemblies that are compatible with input/ output hard disk drives. SSD is less susceptible to electronic shock, have lower access time and latency. These disks are not widely used as they are still 10 times more expensive when compared to HDDs.
Another technology that has recently replaced all the traditional applications is cloud computing Australia, which manages all your data applications in a simpler, effective and cost free manner. You do not have to pay unnecessary for maintaining hundreds of daunting software and hardware applications, instead you pay only for what you need and the upgrades are automatic with flexible scalability. Data that is once stored in the cloud can be accessed, modified and stored from anywhere and everywhere, all you need is a secure internet connection around you. There is almost unlimited data storage with feasible recovery options. Hence, cloud service providers are competent enough to carry out the recovery process effectively that makes the entire process simpler than traditional methods of data storage. The cost of configuring cloud computing services differs for every vendor and on the total capacity of the data to be configured.
