Got plans for the week of Labor Day? If you’re in San Francisco, you should be attending BoxWorks, the annual cloud conference from Box. If you’re not familiar with the file storage, sync and share vendor, they’ve been on a tear the past few years - revenue jumped 94% in the first quarter for 2014 from the same period the year before and the company has its sights set on an IPO in 2014.
1.) Amazing Keynotes: Need innovative ideas? Want to hear compelling content? BoxWorks has some super keynote speakers lined up this year. Jeffrey Katzenberg of DreamWorks Animation, Jim Collins the author of Good to Great, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, former CTO of the United States Aneesh Chopra, and more. Of course we have to include Aaron Levie, the CEO and co-founder of Box. Aaron is always impressive and will focus on how the cloud is transforming the way we do business. With a stellar speaker lineup, you’ll get your fix of interesting insights from some of today’s most influential business leaders.
2.) Innovation: Cloud technologies have completely changed the way we do business each and every day. We’re telecommuting more than ever before. We’re collaborating in a whole new way because of solutions like Box. The paperless office is pretty much around the corner. Everything in our office is so much smaller and sleeker. (For a cool look at the cloud in the workspace, check out our latest infographic on the topic.) During BoxWorks, speakers will not only discuss how the cloud revolution is changing the workplace and our home lives, but there will be a focus on the big question - what’s next?
3.) Hoodie neck pillows: For real, this is a thing. Swing by the Backupify booth for some fun swag. We’re at booth number 17 and will be chatting about the value of cloud to cloud backup. On Google Apps? Salesforce? Box? We’ll discuss the importance of backing up all the critical data that your company is storing in the cloud.
