Analyst group, 451 Research, is hosting the two-day conference at the Hotel Russell in London on the 2nd and 3rd April.
Anthony Foy, SkyDox CEO, will take part in a panel debate on cloud storage business models together with other major vendors across the hosting and cloud storage sector. Drawing on expertise in building profitable companies and increasing shareholder value, Anthony will be providing insights on how vendors can meet demand from Information Communication Technology (ICT) decision-makers for value added storage and collaboration service that help them drive operational efficiencies. Over 250 hosting and infrastructure providers, software and hardware vendors, enterprise decision-makers and financers will be attending the event.
HCTS EU 2012 will cover the perfect storm of economic, technology, and operational factors that are currently driving the adoption of cloud enables services by ICT departments from organizations of all sizes. The panel will discuss ideas and concepts around BYOD (bring your own device), the consumerization of IT, cloud storage and big data and their potential impact on effects on businesses providing or consumer cloud enabled storage.
SkyDox’s platform goes beyond basic file sharing, file synchronization, storage, and collaboration tools by enabling users to share, store, co-author, and manage files and document-centric collaborations in the office, remotely, and through mobile devices. The platform delivers a range of social business tools, such as activity feeds, online meetings, presence indicators, and dynamic email alerts to users.
SkyDox allows users to assign folder and document level access rights and permissions, designed to prevent the downloading or passing on of confidential files to another party without authorization. The ability to track file access and viewing at a page level also allows users to determine if, and when, the document was opened, with whom it was shared, and which pages attracted the most interest. The platform allows users to store, share, collaborate, and synchronize over 200 file types using any browser-enabled device.
“On the first day of the event, the 451 Change Wave analysis revealed how tablets will drive the cloud storage and collaboration market. More than 25% of companies are actively supporting or deploying tablets, especially for customer facing staff – who are using their tablets as presentation aids or who need to access or update files while on the move,” commented Ali Moinuddin, SkyDox CMO. “The iPad, and more lately the Samsung Galaxy, have revolutionized document sharing in the enterprise sector. Our customers reflect this revolution in the market – with most of them leveraging our platform to allow distributed or mobile staff to access and collaborate on content securely using a range of mobile devices, not just laptops or PCs.”
