VIDEO Interview: Box A/NZ regional VP, Scott Leader, unboxes the 2018 Box experience

By

Today's cloud content platforms help companies transform the way they and their people work, solving simple and complex information challenges, so why does Box think it's an outside-the-box solution?

In a world of Dropbox, Sync, Google Drive, OneDrive, iCloud, Tresorit, pCloud, SpiderOak One, JottaCloud, Teamdrive and others is Box, a company founded in 2005 to "make it easier for people to securely share ideas, collaborate and get work done faster".

Boasting "more than 41 million users and 85,000 businesses, including 69% of the Fortune 500", Box says they're trusted to manage content in the cloud, "transforming the way people and organisations work so they can achieve their greatest ambitions" as a "cloud content platform for the digital age".

Indeed, the company bills itself as "an enterprise content management platform that solves simple and complex challenges, from sharing and accessing files on mobile devices to sophisticated business processes like data governance and retention".

So, when we were given a chance to talk to Box A/NZ's new regional vice-president, Scott Leader, we decided to take Box up on its offer to unbox the 2018 Box experience.

I have the list of questions beneath the video, but I did want to know what made Box different to its various competitors, its Box Skills, multi zones, APIs and more.

Here's my video interview with Scott Leader:

In the video above, I introduced Scott, and ask him to tell us a bit about himself and his history in the world of tech.

We then went into the differences between Box and its competitors, and what Box offered not only to Australian businesses, but businesses and organisations worldwide.

Naturally we spoke about digital transformation, Box Skills, APIs, apps, AI, machine learning, and more.

We then spoke about what the future might hold, great advice Scott has received in life, and his final message to iTWire viewers and readers, and to Box's current and future customers and partners.

Here's the Box video from 2015 with its co-founders talking about founding the company:
