Two key changes from last year really made me happy: Box’s enterprise customers (at least the ones on the panel during the analyst event) are calling Box content management (advanced content management, even); Box is unequivocally stating that Platform is the base upon which the Box...

UnFUDding Cloud Content Management (a rant)

Enterprise File Sync and Share - Not What You Think It Is

When Gartner came out with their Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) back in July 2014 I laughed a little because I find the idea of an EFSS market, well, laughable. Yes, I know they put in a whole bunch of stuff about what could or should be part of the market, but boiled...
