Box AI: Enterprise-grade AI is now at your fingertips

A massive shift in how enterprises interact with their unstructured data is underway.

Large language models, having rapidly advanced, can now accurately answer a wide range of questions, summarize vast amounts of information, and identify trends in complex data. And businesses are tapping into mission-critical insights once locked away in content (like sales presentations in Google Slides, finance documents in Microsoft Excel, marketing assets in Keynote, and more).

What better place to seize this opportunity — than on the platform built for your content? It’s time to dive into Box AI in the Content Cloud.

Box AI with the power of Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service

We’re excited to announce that for the Box AI GA, we’re integrating with Azure OpenAI Service to bring the most advanced intelligence models to the Content Cloud and enhance enterprise-grade AI even further. Microsoft and Box already help customers meet strict compliance requirements like FINRA, GxP, and FedRAMP.

  • Financial services companies can extract insights from reports in Box (including market trends, economic indicators, and historical financial data) to provide a summary of key findings that highlights projections and potential risks.  
  • Life sciences organizations can obtain information from clinical trial data and expedite analyses of vast datasets for a more comprehensive and efficient understanding of trial outcomes.  
  • Public sector agencies can derive valuable insights from vast amounts of constituent feedback and policy research to guide evidence-based decisions and policy development, while aligning to President Biden’s guidance for use of AI. 
  • Insurance companies can find key information in claims reports to enhance efficiency, reduce turnaround times, and provide a smoother experience for both parties. 
  • Legal firms can quickly identify key terms, clauses, and relevant information within complex legal texts to significantly reduce time and effort required for legal research, allowing attorneys to focus on more strategic aspects of their cases.  

As you can see, we’re super excited for the GA of Box AI. But don’t take our word for it:

"Not too long ago we were all talking about the business imperative to embracing digital transformation; bringing legacy workflows and processes into a cloud content platform that enables access and collaboration on essential business information from anywhere along with the ability to share content securely, and seamlessly. As the leader in this space, we chose Box to ensure we could achieve our transformation and without knowing it at the time, this would be a critical decision that allowed us to maintain business continuity during an unforeseen global pandemic. We see Box AI as a similarly massive value-add to our technology stack, where we may not know all the ways generative AI will change our lives in the future, but we’re on the rocket ship of AI advancements just by being a Box customer."
