With Box Virtual Summit approaching this Thursday, May 19, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into what makes a company truly innovative – and what changes are affecting organizations of all sizes. I keep coming back to one consistent theme that we’re seeing today: digital transformation.
Digital transformation is the fundamental reimagining and re-architecture of every business process and interaction through the use of new technologies. Becoming a digital business requires having the right set of strategies that can transform a traditional enterprise at nearly every level:
- Strengthening customer relationships
- Implementing new technologies and IT infrastructure
- Improving and accelerating processes and practices
- Shifting organizational and company culture
A major part of digital transformation involves building innovative digital experiences, not just for employees but also for customers, partners, suppliers and vendors. As every industry evolves, so do the expectations for how people can do business with one another. Yet building these digital experiences can be a daunting new undertaking.
Luckily, emerging best-in-class solutions are making it easier than ever for companies to build new apps and services. The modern development stack comprises several platforms that work harmoniously to power these applications, allowing businesses to focus on their core competencies when building new experiences.
Each platform in the modern stack focuses on a particular component of an experience, and each component is designed and built by experts who specialize in a particular domain – one that would be unnecessarily complex for a business to create on its own. For example, Twilio drives SMS and voice functions, Okta manages users and authentication, DocuSign powers e-signature services, and Braintree handles payment processing.
As companies develop these new digital experiences, content will play an essential role in many of their apps. Again, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel: Box Platform powers all the content services in these custom apps, delivering exceptional content experiences and accelerating time to market.
