Box has been named a Hot Company to Watch in 2020 by Nucleus Research

In the spirit of wrapping up another incredible year, we're honored to share that Box has been named a Hot Company to Watch in 2020 by Nucleus Research!


In this report, Nucleus Research evaluated twelve companies that are either leaders or strong challengers in their respective markets, and identified them as top performers who will continue to show exceptional performance into the future with a unparalleled focus on delivering value to customers.

"In identifying the hot companies, Nucleus analysts debated the current position of each vendor and their potential for unique growth, justifying inclusion based on the company’s momentum and recent successes. Some vendors on the list typify innovative approaches or new applications of technology. Other companies are on the cutting-edge of their respective markets, delivering novel technology capabilities to customers and seeking to unseat incumbent solutions."

Here's what they said specifically about Box in the report:

  • "Box began in 2005 as a file sync and share (FSS) platform that focused its efforts on a strategy of a simple, safe, and organized system for working on files. Since then, Box has followed the same approach while expanding its functionalities, resulting in a broad-based cloud content management platform (CCM)."
  • "Box operates under the premise that content drives insights, is essential to the success of any enterprise, and is the focus of all R&D expenditures."
  • "Box is known for its usability and collaborative capabilities and enables users work across a variety of content types, devices, apps and services, both on-site and remotely. Box Content Management also has strong security features and a simple data capture process for any device."

We had the pleasure of hosting Nucleus Research's Principal Analyst, Barbara Peck, at our user conference BoxWorks earlier this year. At the event, Barbara had the opportunity to speak with multiple Box executives and customers to better understand our commitment to ensuring our customers are wildly successful. Barbara wrote about what she heard here, including the unique use cases and solutions our customers have been able to drive using Box in their digitalization projects.

"Two main factors influenced Nucleus' decision to include Box - ongoing enhancement to functionality and usability, and user feedback," said Barbara Peck, Principal Analyst at Nucleus Research. "Nucleus interviewed users at BoxWorks and found that they reported great support from Box staff and effective responsiveness to any issue."

We're proud to receive this recognition from Nucleus Research, especially after being named a Leader in its ECM Technology Value Matrix 2019 report that published earlier this year.
