Welcome to our September eNewsletter, which includes a thought-provoking byline from M-Files' Herbert Lörch, who likens the post-Covid IT landscape to a 'morning after party clean-up' operation. In a new normal where organisations have been forced into using numerous and often incompatible cloud-based systems just to keep going, we are all now faced with a plethora of platforms and storage silos that our IT departments almost certainly hadn't planned for in advance, but have had to learn to accommodate.

As Herbert's article says: "If data protection and IT security officers were able to look the other way at the beginning of the crisis or, in case of doubt, weigh up in favour of maintaining business operations, they will clearly not be able to accept this as a permanent state of affairs."

It is possible, he argues, that intelligent content services can come to the rescue here, by creating a context for information that might not otherwise be visible, and providing links that allow that context to spread outside the boundaries of specific systems. What do you think? Can content services offerings help us to tie together the disparate data lakes created during almost two years of 'use whatever you have to in order to get the job done'?
