Box & SkySync Streamline On-Premises to Cloud Migration

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwired - October 13, 2015) - In a new video, SkySync's Technical Sales Manager Udae Sandhu sits down with Box VP of Consulting, Tim Smith, to discuss trends in enterprise storage, particularly the movement of many large organizations from on-premises to cloud-based content management.

Following is an excerpt from the conversation:

Sandhu: "Gartner recently had a report where they said that over half of all enterprises will be in the cloud by 2018, and we definitely see that happening. Organizations are moving to the cloud for cheaper, better collaboration. What we're excited about is seeing an old age of everything being on-premises, to a mad rush to get everything into the cloud where it's easier. Now, it's not so much a question of, "Where are we going?" They know where they are today, they know they want to get to the cloud, and now it's a matter of getting the steps in place to move their content over elegantly, taking into account things like existing permissions and file structure."

Smith: "We're seeing a rise again of the Enterprise Content Management market in a whole different form, where people have an expectation of ease of use and accessibility anywhere. To do those things, you need to be able to move everything over and re-point your systems to something like Box. SkySync is helping us do that in a number of our accounts right now."

During the eight-minute interview, Smith and Sandhu discuss some of the greatest challenges enterprises face when moving to the cloud, best practices and recommendations when planning a large migration, and how recent joint customers have used SkySync to quickly and easily leverage the benefits of Box.
