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.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
