Huddle wants to free enterprises from the shackles of SharePoint
Enterprise collaboration specialist Huddle has launched its new Content Connector tool to release organizations from what it calls "the pain of SharePoint" and other legacy content management systems.
Content Connector enables organizations to seamlessly migrate large amounts of content out of their unwieldy and complex SharePoint deployments, which are difficult to manage and upgrade, and into Huddle’s secure cloud. By doing so, organizations can transform the way they work, support an increasingly mobile workforce and benefit from cross-firewall collaboration.
Even where completely replacing SharePoint isn't an option, Huddle can work on top of it providing the collaboration features office workers need and syncing with SharePoint for knowledge management, record management and archiving.
"SharePoint is dying and soon such legacy enterprise technology will be extinct," explains Alastair Mitchell, CEO of Huddle. "It's too clunky and complex for people to use, costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to implement and often takes six months to test, let alone install, a new version. SharePoint's just too dated to meet the demands of today’s businesses and SharePoint Online gives people the same headaches as the on-premise service, such as poor mobile access and low adoption. But the thought of moving away from such systems is daunting for organizations as years' of data is stored there. The Huddle Content Connector takes the pain out of moving to the cloud, so companies can now benefit from intuitive and flexible technology, far shorter upgrade cycles, mobile and external working. It's time to move into the new world of work".
Advantages of Huddle over SharePoint are that it allows collaboration across firewalls, enabling people both in and out of the organization to share data. It can be accessed from mobile devices with native apps for Android, BlackBerry and iOS. Social features make for simpler more efficient working, and Huddle's cloud model means lower cost of ownership and higher adoption rates.
