What are best practices for organizing files?

Hi,

we have several IT and non IT platforms in place. For example File System, SharePoint, Outlook, etc. Regardless from the technology. Are there any best practice guides how to organize the data in an enterprise?

Thanks for any advice

Hi,

I'm looking for a more non technical approach. A best practice guide to organize data. For example. Create a FileShare for each Year for every department or create project folders for the entire organization, etc.

Thanks
John
almost every org I have ever dealt with creates a central file share and departmental-specific folders locked down by permissions under that - then lets the departments pretty much organze their data in the manner they want to themselves

it all depends on how much administrative overhead you want to create for yourself
Did any of this help you? Or did you find a solution?
