Authorization Management: Make Data Accessible and Protect Information

More and more employees feel unsatisfied with their places of employment. Current surveys assume that up to 34 percent of employees will want to change jobs within the next two years. Fluctuation within companies is growing. Enterprise Content Management has never been more important than it is today.

 

Generation Y especially willing to change

Excessive demands and difficult targets, no promotions, a lack of meaningfulness – the reasons workers want to change jobs are varied, especially for young, high potential employees in Generation Y. These reasons can’t always be pushed out of the way with money, no matter how much it is. Against this background, companies don’t just need to ask how they can hang on to young employees. They need to think specifically about the functionality of their processes and the security of their data.

 

More and more data – accessible to every newbie?

Fluctuation isn’t the only thing that’s growing. Data volumes grow every year as well. Key information is hidden in a wide variety of places in the company – on file servers, in e-mail inboxes, and in the archive. Quickly training new employees and ensuring they are able to operate based on their existing knowledge without much prior training is just as important as protecting sensitive information from unauthorized access by new employees or by colleagues leaving the company. An authorization system is a necessity, and should be able to adapt quickly and easily.

 

New momentum for a well-known topic

This is not a new problem. It’s been around since the new generation of interns, the increasing number of freelance workers, and the trend of home offices came on the scene. However, new numbers on the likelihood that young employees will change jobs give them a new quality. Companies would do well to think about how they can make their data accessible while protecting it at the same time. Enterprise Content Management is certainly a must.
