M-Files has received a cash infusion to further their growth. The Finnish enterprise content management platform does away with traditional folder structures by relying entirely on metadata to help people find documents. Gigaom brought this news to our attention in their article, “.” M-Files works across the cloud as well as on-premise or hybrid installations.

“Everyone says that metadata is important, but quite often it’s something users have to add when they are storing documents,” CEO Miika Mäkitalo commented. Metadata can be considered bread crumbs, but it works best when referenced against a solid taxonomy. Access Innovations wants you to have access to your data. They are one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
