|I remember back in 2011 Box came out with 50GB free cloud storage for it’s users. That’s still a good deal today. Box has been making a big push towards enterprise customers but I’ve always thought of them as another cloud storage player.
Fast forward to the Boxworks 2017 and things have changed. Sure, cloud storage is a core competency, but that doesn’t bring a ton of value to users.
“We are in the midst of a revolution in enterprise software driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning, and we are making Box the most intelligent cloud content management platform in the world,” said Aaron Levie, cofounder and CEO of Box.
Box is bundling IBM Watson, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure AI technologies into the Box Skills Framework so users can let AI analyze and take action on the contents of their cloud.
This will deliver video, picture, and audio intelligence to the Box platform. Anyone who’s ever transcribed content is pretty pumped about this because let’s face it, transcribing is just the worst.
