Microsoft might not have control over it, but Dropbox will. For a business,
that is unacceptable - and rightly so, since it means important documents
go outside your perimeter. Instead they use a document management system
(like Sharepoint or Alfresco) that they install and manage centrally.
Unlike a wiki, a document management system gives full, normal document
management. Unlike a CMS it is all about documents, and unlike a LAN share
it does versioning and workflow.

Once you get your mind around "workflow" you'll never want to live
without it.  Steep curve though, it is a real change of mindset.

And CMIS is an extensible data model and allows for establishing
relationships between documents in a standard way.  No bad there,  and a
big step forward over something like DropBox which simply moves the
'garbage dump' from the [Open] file-server to the [proprietary] cloud.
