The day is packed with amazing sessions around cloud content management, with more than 10 countries represented, including European business leaders from Box customers UEFA, Oxfam, Rémy Cointreau, Lagardère Sports, Kingston University London, and Surrey Heath Borough Council, among others. Our CEO Aaron Levie also hopped across the pond to talk about what it means to become a modern, digital company and what it takes to go beyond the digital facade.
Box and BT
Steve Masters, Vice President of Customer Innovation at BT Global Services, one of the world’s leading providers of communications services and solutions, will be joining Aaron on stage at 11:30am for the keynote. Box and BT have identified several potential areas for collaboration, including establishing cloud connectivity with Box and co-selling of Box in the market. By working together, Box and BT seek to help businesses in Europe more aggressively adopt cloud technologies and collaborate across boundaries in a more global and connected way.
Future of Work
We're also bringing together IT industry leaders and innovators from Google Cloud, IBM, and Slack who will share their unique perspectives and predictions on the future of work in the enterprise.
“We’re on the cusp of a new era of computing. The convergence of cloud computing, increasingly powerful mobile devices, bots and artificial intelligence could bring about a step change in productivity,” said Johann Butting, Head of Sales, EMEA, Slack. “By harnessing these technologies and using them to support our simple, everyday tasks at work, we’re freeing up brainpower to solve hard problems--ones that require human creativity. The future of work is a universe in which technology delivers discrete and personalized support for everyone, and we’re excited to be part of that journey.”
