This report provides key findings of a detailed Economic Value Validation (EVV) analysis from the Enterprise Strategy Group for the kiteworks solution. Results show that kiteworks offers higher ROI with the opportunity for enterprise organizations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared with EFSS alternatives.

Bringing More Transparency to our Industry

 

As anyone who follows the EFSS market can tell you, it's an insanely crowded and competitive space to operate within. In order to stay ahead, you need to make sure potential customers understand exactly what benefits they're getting from your solution.

Economic Value Analysis from ESG Group Shows Higher Benefits from Accellion

ROI for kiteworks Solution is Five Times that of Public Cloud File Sharing Alternatives such as Dropbox and Box

 
Palo Alto, CA – August 26, 2014 –

Accellion, Inc., the pioneer in providing mobile file sharing and collaboration solutions to enterprise organizations that enable increased business productivity while ensuring security and compliance, today announced that a new Economic Value Analysis (EVA) from the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) shows that a private cloud deployment of Accellion’s kiteworks solution provides five times the ROI over a public cloud file sharing solution for a typical enterprise.

The ESG EVA comprises an ROI calculator and accompanying report that compares the annual cost of ownership and annual cost benefits of deploying the Accellion kiteworks private cloud file sharing solution as compared to public cloud alternatives.  The improved ROI from kiteworks results from a lower annual cost of ownership, greater cost benefits from increased productivity and IT operations improvements and also a significantly lower risk of data breaches.

"Deploying kiteworks offers the opportunity for enterprise organizations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower total cost of ownership compared with EFSS alternatives," said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at ESG. "In fact, ESG's analysis of a typical enterprise use case demonstrates kiteworks results in an impressive estimated ROI of nearly 400%, thanks primarily to kiteworks’ productivity benefits.  This compares with less than 75% ROI for a generic consumer-grade cloud solutions that don’t have some of the advanced productivity and deployment options such as those kiteworks offers. "

“With many options available for file sharing and collaboration it can be difficult to determine the true benefits and costs involved in an enterprise deployment,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. “We strongly believe in the cost benefits of deploying a private cloud file sharing solution which were validated in this ESG study. Now, with this tool, enterprise IT teams get a tailored analysis of the ROI they could expect from kiteworks compared with other EFSS solutions based on their specific needs, so they can better choose the product that is right for their organization.”

The kiteworks by Accellion solution features a three-tier private cloud architecture and mobile-first design with integrated productivity tools for secure creation, editing, annotation and sharing of content on mobile devices, including universal access to enterprise content stores. With kiteworks, enterprises have content access controls, tracking and auditing capabilities, all while leveraging cloud computing to realize improved productivity gains.

Methodology

The data here was computed using the ROI calculator, created and validated by independent analyst firm ESG. The analysis was designed to help organizations determine the relative costs and benefits of leveraging kiteworks for their EFSS needs compared with a "present mode of operation"  (PMO) that reflects the consumer-grade, public cloud EFSS solutions customers may be using today. The goal of the ESG Economic Value Analysis (EVA) is to provide potential customers with a comprehensive picture of the direct and indirect costs and benefits they should consider when evaluating an investment in an EFSS solution. The analysis was created based on third party interviews of Accellion and alternative customers, along with industry and proprietary data. The ESG report takes into consideration how a customer plans to use kiteworks, their collaboration needs, storage environment and business costs.
