Folio Cloud included in the report “The Changing Cloud Agenda”
Folio Cloud featured in the recent report “The Changing Cloud Agenda” by Forrester Research, Inc. as an example of a cloud service for B2B collaboration.
The report particularly focused on Folio Cloud as a “platform for secure intercompany document exchange”*. The solution offers a number of functions for the handling, managing, and sharing of documents both internally and between different companies including workflow, authentication, and access rights management. Folio Cloud also offers a development environment for functional extensions to fit individual needs. Versioning, auditing, border-transcending workflows, and records management ensure the fulfillment of compliance requirements.
In addition to the functionalities highlighted in the report, Fabasoft is certified and tested according to the most important standards for security reliability. The agile Folio Cloud development environment enables functional extensions to be developed quickly and easily. These “Cloud Apps” can be publicly marketed via the Fabasoft Cloud App Store (www.cloudappstore.com) or privately implemented for specific companies or users.
The Changing Cloud Agenda:
“Cloud computing continues to grow at a tremendous speed. But as the market and the understanding of cloud computing grows, the drivers and deployment scenarios that framed the initial cloud agenda are becoming increasingly irrelevant. Today companies expect benefits that go way beyond cost savings and efficiency and are starting to focus increasingly on cloud solutions that facilitate business innovation and growth. This report analyzes the changing value proposition and usage scenarios for cloud services and will help CIOs and other decision-makers understand what value contribution cloud computing is going to deliver in the future.*”
