Partners Appcelerator, Cloud Foundry, Heroku, Rackspace, SnapLogic, and Twilio Support the Box Innovation Network®
PALO ALTO, CA, Nov 17, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– Box today launched the Box Innovation Network® (/bin), a new program designed to foster innovation in enterprise software. /bin consists of leading developer communities and diverse platform partners including Appcelerator, Cloud Foundry, Heroku, Rackspace, SnapLogic, and Twilio. In addition to working with platform partners, Box is investing up to two million dollars in fund money for /bin members chosen to support the growth and development of future enterprise applications built on the Box platform.
“Slow-moving enterprise software giants have produced very little innovation in recent years, and their closed ecosystems have made it all but impossible for outside players to create compelling experiences for customers on legacy systems,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “We’re changing all of that — and we’re doing so in ways that platforms like Microsoft simply cannot — by creating an open ecosystem of leading partners to enable developers to build and deploy Box applications instantly and on any platform.”
The Mission Behind /bin
Box designed /bin to provide developers with the right resources and services to build new features and functionality on the Box platform. /bin will foster an elite community that provides direct support, contacts and funding for developers and companies to build innovative enterprise technology in the cloud. By teaming up with partners, Box is creating a vibrant ecosystem on its open platform to spark a level of innovation in the enterprise that mirrors what users have seen from development in the consumer platform space.
Real Money for Real Innovation
This investment is part of the company’s continued focus on building the smarter enterprise. In 2011, Box has seen tremendous traction with enterprise adoption in 100,000 businesses, including 77% of the Fortune 500. CIOs from across the business landscape are entering a new era of enterprise IT, powered by unprecedented data growth, mobility and cloud collaboration platforms. As customers continue to invest in rapidly deploying mobile and cloud technologies, Box and other cloud solutions are poised for success. The company has raised a total of $162M in venture capital to fuel its investment in building out the enterprise ecosystem.
