In September, M-Files surveyed 250 UK-based IT decision makers within a wide range of organisations. The intent was to have them self-assess regarding their information management and information security challenges. We’ll be releasing the full results soon—but in the meantime here are some interesting highlights.

We’re seeing this more and more often, especially at the enterprise-level, and it’s a problem that M-Files addresses rather elegantly.
