Context is a widely-overlooked aspect of document and data storage.

Think about your current document storage solution:

  • Who decided the current storage structure and location?
  • How has it evolved?
  • Has it remained the same for the past 1, 2… 5 years?
  • Which folder and document naming conventions have been followed consistently, if any?

Context is key to storing documents in a way that guides people to the needed documents. Surrounding your documents with context helps present documents to you, based on where you are and what you are currently doing.

Contextual document discovery is not a new thing, but we finally have the tools available to make it happen.

How do we surround our documents with context for quick, pointed discovery?
