Companies hoping to develop new capabilities before their rivals don't have to wait for new hardware or software installation. The current generation of IT solutions is available in the cloud. That means direct access to new capabilities could be on the way, with providers handling the actual management of the programs. There is a downside to this rapid deployment, however - companies could end up experiencing a serious problem with data silos. Too many applications, each producing a mass of information, could clog systems and contribute to the rising threat of data sprawl.

The current generation of digital enterprise solutions is being built atop the previous one. Companies have spent a few generations relying on information technology, meaning there are old productivity apps going unused. This is how the march of progress works, but there is a serious drawback. Data saved in old formats and saved in silos related to disused applications may now be hard to find. The IT workers behind the projects involved may have left their respective companies over the years, adding yet another layer of distance. But what if a user today has to find that data?

Businesses trying to create sensible and easy to navigate information environments have to face off against dual disruptive forces. Information is always pouring in, much of it unstructured content - including emails, .pdfs, productivity app data and social media streams - meaning the sheer amount of data is constantly on the rise. Coupled with this is the fact that the existing information is varied in its own right, and every update to software means less of the programs actually used to create that data will still be in service, making legacy content harder to find. It's difficult to support an expensive and disruptive migration for old data. Dealing with data is monopolizing the attention of knowledge workers, making the situation seem nearly intractable.

Everyday operations for today's companies create massive volumes of usable digital content. Strong use of the information generated can help companies differentiate themselves from competitors and develop projects that are exactly what staff and customers alike call for. There is a catch, however. If the content is hard to locate, all of these advantages will become less pronounced. Spending time and staff effort digging through archives to find a relevant piece of data is a waste of resources, and efficient operations call for the removal of issues like these.

Businesses have a complex relationship with their own IT environments. The webs of solutions that make companies function have been growing at a relentless pace in recent years, and businesses' expansions and close relationships with other firms have just entangled matters further. The IT department can cut through the confusion somewhat by deploying applications that see use with a wide cross-section of the user base and provide essential services. One strong contender to fill this role is Microsoft SharePoint, a framework that helps employees collaborate and share information. Used correctly, it can become a frequently consulted portal to help firms form a unified strategy. Of course, some extensions to its native capabilities are necessary to make SharePoint right for such a role.
