Box boekt terreinwinst in Europa dankzij uitgebreid partnernetwerk

Box maakt vandaag bekend dat zijn Europese partnernetwerk sinds de lancering vorig jaar al 130 bedrijven aan zich heeft weten te binden. Het afgelopen jaar heeft Box zijn netwerk in Europa verdubbeld met samenwerkingen met bedrijven als Capgemini, KERNEL Networks, Bechtle-Comsoft, EVRY en CRMWaypoint.

"De combinatie van de cloud, mobiel werken en hang naar meer samenwerking heeft een sterke invloed op de manier waarop bedrijven informatie structureren en beheren”, zegt Wayne Cook, VP van Channel and Alliances, EMEA. “Deze verschuiving vraagt om nieuwe strategieën en een nieuwe mentaliteit, en onze partners in Europa gebruiken Box om deze doelen te verwezenlijken", zegt Wayne Cook, VP van Channel and Alliances, EMEA. " We zoeken goede partners die onze manier van samenwerken begrijpen. Dankzij dit selectieve proces hebben we een sterk en verreikend partnernetwerk kunnen opzetten."

Box richt zich op drie soorten partners: systeemintegrators die zijn overgestapt op digitale services, serviceproviders die cloud services bevorderen, en het kanaalnetwerk. Het afgelopen jaar hebben meerdere nieuwe partners in deze gebieden zich verbonden aan het groeiende Europese netwerk van Box, zoals:

  • Pan-EMEA: Capgemini
  • Verenigd Koninkrijk: Bytes, Softcat, Insight en Methods
  • Frankrijk: KERNEL Networks, Econocom, Specialist Computer Centres, Niji en Ei Technologies
  • Duitsland: Bechtle-Comsoft, CANCOM, Deutsche Telekom en SoftwareOne
  • Scandinavië: EVRY en Envoya
  • Nederland: CRMWaypoint

Box biedt eenvoudige en veilige toegang tot content, overal en op elk apparaat. Het bedrijf heeft meer dan 25 miljoen gebruikers wereldwijd bij meer dan 225.000 bedrijven, waaronder 99 procent van de Fortune 500. Box is door zowel Forrester Research ("The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013."1) als Gartner, Inc. ("MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing"2) bestempeld als toonaangevend op het gebied van synchroniseren en delen van bestanden.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
