Recommendations:

I would recommend that you do your research to see what is the best service for you. If need the storage space and want your organization's information secure I would absolutely recommend Microsoft OneDrive.

Experience:

We had a limited amount of storage space on us in-house servers and this was the most cost efficient and convenient solution. We use the cloud storage for client information and the software that came with it in Microsoft 365. We have had no problems with it so far. No security breaches and the added storage space has allowed our business to store our data in house more efficiently.

Pros:

The amount of space that you get is the best part of it along with the added software in Microsoft 365.

Cons:

There are no cons so far.

Recommendations

The ease of implementation is effortless, the simple implementation is time-saving, and sharing files has been made easier. Most importantly, the user appreciates the time savings is having the data when it's needed no matter what device is being used. Specifically, the client appreciates being able to get up to speed so quickly, have any document, and have nothing to worry about. The user would highly recommend this platform to business users. 

BACKGROUND

Can you please provide a brief description of your company?

I work for Integro. We consult in the ECM [enterprise content management] and information lifecycle governance world.

What is your position in the company?

I'm vice president of support and strategic initiatives. I support our sales group and work with our consultants out in the field. I also do a lot of work with clients around their requirements. I sit down and help them understand what's available and take their needs and turn them into requirements that can be satisfied by technology. 

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge your company was facing that initiated the need for this platform?

My focus with OneDrive started personally. I needed a tool that would allow me to have my content available to me wherever I was. When I travel, I have a notebook and a tablet. I often need content when I'm out of the office, working with clients or at home. The ability to have that content available as needed drove my choice to go with OneDrive. I have gotten very comfortable with OneDrive, and I store everything I need on the platform. I don't store content locally on any device anymore.

SOLUTION

How does your company use this platform or software?

The implementation is straightforward. It's very easy to use and create the storage location. Once you have access, it becomes a storage location. If I save a document on my notebook, I save it directly onto my OneDrive location. Instead of it going to the C: drive, it goes to OneDrive. By default, OneDrive synchronizes that content to the cloud. As soon as I save the document, it's available on any device that has access to my OneDrive account. OneDrive has apps for many different platforms, be it Android, iOS, or something else. By adding those apps on all your devices, that content is available anywhere.

Was your company considering other platforms? Why this platform?

I was working with Dropbox and Google Drive, but, as a company, we became Microsoft Office 365 users and that integration becomes simple. It's part of the whole plan. Everything I have – my email and SharePoint data and OneDrive – it's all available in that one location. I go to one location on the cloud with a web browser, and I can get to any of my content. It made sense to consolidate down around that environment. Then, the tools work with it. I can use Word. I can share my documents with another user. We can both be editing the same document. OneDrive takes care of merging the edits together. It has all that collaboration functionality in it, which takes it to another level.

OneDrive delivers the most storage for the cheapest price. They give you a ton of storage. There are competitors in the field that are starting to offer a little more integration, a little more collaboration, and some advanced features. We've been looking at Box, too. They take the cloud storage to a new level with more enterprise content management tools associated with it. 

On an annual or monthly basis, how much does your company spend to utilize the platform?

It's a corporate account, so I'm not sure what our annual spend is on OneDrive.

RESULTS

Can you share any success, metrics, or overall results of your implementation of this platform?

The ease of implementation to get started on the platform is effortless. It's simple to get started in it and it saves us a lot of time and effort when accessing and sharing documents. To share a document with another user, I don't have to find it, attach it to an email and send it out. I just send a link to a coworker or external person. But, most importantly, the time savings is having the data at my fingertips when I need it no matter where I am. If I need something Saturday afternoon while I'm out with my family, it's available to me on my phone. If I'm on my client's site, I don't have to pull my computer out all the time. I can get to it on my tablet. That's where the convenience of the tool saves me time. Being able to get up to speed so quickly, have any document at my fingertips, and have nothing to worry about is priceless.

FEATURES

Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?  

I think the impressiveness with the tools out there is the apps associated with all the devices. The simplicity of getting that content is where the strength of the platform comes in. The simplicity of being able to access any document from any device is amazing.

Looking back, are there any areas of the software upon which you feel could be added or improved?

Coming from my background, the few areas that I always caution our clients on is their vast arena to store stuff. We're just building these huge silos of data that we really don't need to be building. The ability to have more of those governance type tools associated with these cloud storage environments is something that everyone's going to need to look at in the future. My ability to store hundreds of gigs of data in this silo is not useful for organizations. There's no way for an organization to search across OneDrive or apply retention to people's content. That governance type tools don't exist. That's going to be the big problem that companies will focus on. 

Have you had to interact with the platform's support team or reference their support resources?

I have not had a need to do that. I don't know of anyone that's had problems with OneDrive. The uptime has been great. 

OVERVIEW

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. What would you give the software for functionality of the features available?

Four. I think for what it is marketed as it hits the mark. I'd like to see more of the governance and retention tools.

What would you give the software for ease of use or ease of implementation into your business?

Five. That's been the simplest part.

For support, as in responsiveness of the team or helpfulness of the resources available?

Three and a half. I would like to see more information online like self-help guides. 

For overall satisfaction with the platform?

Four and a half.

How likely are you to recommend the software to a colleague or similar business?

Five.

Recommendations:

I recommend considering Microsoft lower price

Experience:

My organization chose Microsoft OneDrive for WIP (Windows Information Protection) support for Windows 10, security Group Sharing Control, and Block anonymous edit sharing links. My company needed to solve Security group sharing control and file activity. My company uses features like sharing links for folders, download multiple files on browsers, file preview enhancement, support for iOS. Microsoft OneDrive has exceeded our expectation, It has benefited my company revolutionizing cloud base care.

Pros:

I like most Microsoft Flow Integration

Cons:

I do not dislike anything, nothing can be optimized

Recommendations:

I am happy with what they offer and what they deliver so I cannot recommend or criticize any aspect of the Microsoft One Drive at this time

Experience:

The first reason is to have a duplicate of all files that we upload to OneDrive. This is a necessity to have a copy of everything that can be accessed anywhere with proper credentials of course. It is more than convenient to access the files whenever we need them. If the assigned laptop or tablet is not available we are not stuck carrying around hardware that has the original version of the document, video or picture that needs to be accessed. We can also edit these files using the web version or app that is associated so it’s not set in stone if we must correct a mistake, add data etc. and we can also share files with whomever that we choose and OneDrive is extremely easy to use so it is not deemed as a complicated program that needs many instructions in order to use it comfortably. We use documents, videos, and photos. It has benefited us in many ways such as accessing files wherever we need them and can pull up whatever we need when it is needed. It performs at an excellent level and has yet to crash or appear to be difficult to use.

Pros:

What we like most is the ease of use and how easy it is to store files, videos, and photos. It is a beneficial tool to us for when we need particular files to share or open and it has proven itself completely secure.

Cons:

I have no dislikes whatsoever I am happy with it overall and cannot think of anything that can be improved at this time.

Keep up the superior customer service & technical support!

Experience:

We were simply running out of secured space. We need new innovation that would allow us to store an unlimited amount of data/records, etc. without the worry of running out of valuable space. Secondly, security was our primary concern so we had to make a choice between a private or public cloud. Obviously, we chose a private cloud. The fact that we can store & access files/data etc. on any of our company issued mobile device. Beyond our expectations & beyond. We cannot be more pleased, It has benefited my employer because the storage space is endless.

Pros:

That the storage space is unlimited. It is a GREAT tool because any data that our employees need can be accessed via PC's, laptops, and any mobile device issued by our company.

Cons:

Honestly, we are 100% pleased. There are no area's that we consider needs improvement

Yes. It truly is an all in one software. If you can make the Mac computers work well or don't have them it is fantastic

Experience:

While I wasn't a part of the team that chose OneDrive, I know that they went with it because we are in the process of moving everyone to Windows 365 and using Outlook as our email system. It's compatible with all the computers and keeps everything Microsoft. It's made it so people in every region can share documents, whereas before had local shared servers. That made it difficult to share docs across state borders or corporate regions. We use the selective sync, external sharing, mobile apps, the PDF annotation on mobile devices, the attachment saving option on mobile and the survey builder. All have been useful for me personally. So far it has worked well for the organization. Adoption was a little slower than the IT team hoped but now that we are all using it has made the document sharing much easier. One major thing that has benefited our organization is the controlled outside sharing options. Without having to have multiple accounts to platforms like Dropbox we can share with vendors and clients within one drive without worrying that they will get ahold of information they should not have access to. At the same time, we can control access internally without multiple accounts.

Pros:

The fact that it is an all in one setup in what I like most about one drive. It does storage, sharing, user analysis - pretty much everything we need. It's a great tool because we just need it and it alone, not five programs or platforms to function.

Cons:

Compatibility with Mac computers has been an issue in the past. We don't have that many people using macs but those of us that do sometimes run into version issues with documents and excel sheets.
