M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, has announced it will showcase its M-Files 2018 and the new Intelligent Metadata Layer (IML) at the upcoming CEBIT 2018 Expo in Hannover, Germany from 11th-15thJune. The demonstration will emphasize how M-Files 2018 and the IML eliminate information silos and the resulting restrictions and difficulties encountered in managing information.
Together with M-Files Gold partners Electric Paper Information Systems, DMSFACTORY, Esch & Pickel and fido, M-Files will be onsite to showcase practical applications of M-Files 2018 and IML for accounts payable, contract management, quality management and project documentation, and ISO certification and compliance. M-Files 2018 is designed to conquer the usual proliferation of information silos in favour of a unified, 360-degree approach that enables users to quickly access all information, regardless of the location and system in which they are managed.
IML in M-Files 2018 integrates a range of data sources – such as network folders, SharePoint, cloud platforms, archives and ECM systems – as well as structured applications, including ERP and CRM systems. Existing systems and processes are not disturbed upon integration with M-Files. Instead, M-Files IML looks to fills in the gaps commonly encountered with legacy enterprise content management (ECM) systems by automatically tagging documents, enriching information with metadata and establishing context into advanced workflows.
Dirk Treue, Channel Marketing Manager at M-Files said, "we offer CEBIT attendees a completely new perspective on how to use and manage information. Instead of the monotony, we show a unique, new approach to how customers can continue to leverage their legacy data and systems without migration, as well as leverage the productivity benefits of advanced solutions with workflows and automatic classification.”
The use of AI in M-Files 2018 automatically identifies suggestions for classification and metadata to create relationships between different information. This breaks down information silos by increasing transparency for users while considerably reducing the effort it takes to locate specific information.
Jan Thijs van Wijngaarden, Channel Sales Manager for M-Files Germany added, "in addition to interested customers, we are also looking forward to meeting potential new distribution partners who are taking advantage of the current change in the document management system (DMS)/ECM market and want to open up new business opportunities.”
