For those not familiar with Box and its CEO/Co-Founder Aaron Levie make sure you check out his blog post "IT Can No Longer Afford to Ignore Its Users"

This is a great follow-up to Mountain Point's post yesterday on why Your Business Model Won't Last

Some great quotes/excerpts....

  • "New Workers. New Devices. No More Servers. Usually a single inflection point is hard to grapple with. Today's enterprises have three."
  • IT and end users need a "social contract"... "applications must run on any device, identity can extend anywhere, and data is always accessible."
  • "For those leaders and organizations that do make the leap, IT will become more competitive and valued than ever before."
  • "Ultimately there may be little choice in the matter. With the technology inflection points we're facing today, the IT organizations that will thrive going forward will be those that can navigate these shifts by putting the user at the center."

If your business needs help navigating these challenges and help better understanding the cloud technologies out there, please don't hesitate to contact Mountain Point!
