EFSS 101 – Understanding File Sync and Share for Enterprises Whether you are an executive, a member of IT staff or a user in a line of business, it is likely that you’ve securely shared files or collaborated with others using an Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) solution. This article is the first in a series that explores the EFSS space to increase awareness and facilitate informed decision-making. Origins and Evolution In the beginning, there were clients and servers. Organizations provided users with workstations, that connected to file servers within a local area network.

Egnyte For Good: Our Work with Habitat for Humanity

In April, Egnyte had an awesome opportunity to work with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco specializes in strengthening communities, restoring homes, and revitalizing local neighborhoods. I first became interested in Habitat for Humanity in high school when I had the opportunity to organize a group of my friends, teachers, and classmates to help at a site in a rural area of North Carolina. In only one week, we were able to directly impact three families in need. Since that experience, I have been trying to show people in my life how rewarding volunteering your time and effort can be. This particular...

What Construction Can Teach Us About Smart Content Management

Posted by on May 19, 2016 in Thought Leadership | 0 comments

Walking into a construction office ten years ago you’d likely see a large number of file cabinets and a lot of paper. What you wouldn’t see is data integration. Even giants in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) space like Tutor Perini — who experienced more than 80 years of success relying simply on paper documents— were confident they would never need anything else. How the ’08 Market Crash Flipped the Story An industry that already operates on razor thin margins was forced to become even more efficient. Companies had to cut costs to weather the financial storm. The ones that survived did so by evolving their business, specifically by...

Do You Know Your Data Intelligence Quotient?

Posted by on May 18, 2016 in For the Techies, Thought Leadership | 0 comments

People often say that engineers go around looking for bugs to fix in a system. The assumption is that rather than seeing the good we look for the bad, thriving off of numbers and data and struggling with intangibles and outcomes that don’t lend themselves to easy measurement. As a former engineer, I have been guilty of the above at times. I’ve always applied a very rational quantitative approach to everything I’ve done in my career. The positive side of ‘thinking like an engineer’ is that the skillset I developed in R&D has served me well in product management, marketing, go-to-market and corporate strategy. This approach has helped me...

It’s a Matter of Perspective: Being a Female Tech Exec

Posted by on May 10, 2016 in Featured, Thought Leadership | 0 comments

Just this weekend, Sheryl Sandberg wrote a touching post about what it means to lean in as a single mother. As a female leader here in Silicon Valley, she’s once again opening everyone’s eyes to a different point of view. She’s setting forth a new challenge asking us all to “rethink our public and corporate workforce policies and broaden our understanding of what a family is and looks like.” I myself am challenging what a family is and looks like. I’ve chosen not to be a mother, am married to a supportive husband and have chosen a career path that can be credited to all the interactions I’ve had...
