Evaluation Guide to Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing: Sync Performance

This IDC study helps teams evaluate the sync performance of enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) services. The study is designed to help enterprises:Better understand different approaches to synchronization across EFSS services as well as advanced capabilities under development.Develop the portion of an EFSS request for proposal (RFP) related to sync features.Construct a test plan for evaluating sync capabilities."Adopting an EFSS service impacts network utilization and cost, how end users are able to collaborate, endpoint performance, and overall end-user productivity," according to Maureen Fleming, IDC program vice president, Business Process Management and Middleware. "Because there are wide differences in sync performance among EFSS services, there are a handful of useful tests that can be performed to separate out high performers in the sync category. Those tests should be aligned and weighted against overall requirements."
