A guest post by Andrew Staples, PR Manager for Kerio Technologies.
I recently read an article about a survey that said 10 of the top 50 cloud services used by people while at work are services to store and share files online. The article correctly points out that while there is a huge demand for this, no single dominant player has emerged yet. To me, it also means that the collaboration riddle remains unsolved.
Social business, project management, file sharing, those of us in the collaboration space describe ourselves by many terms, but we have all fallen short.
While Dropbox and others have fixed the email attachment problem, and apps like Mailbox are making email a more pleasurable experience, we still haven’t given people a better way for them to work with their colleagues. True, we have given them ways to share files, we have given them corporate IM tools, we’ve even eased their need for Microsoft office.
However, collaboration in the workplace is about culture; it’s about understanding how people want to work together. It’s not including every possible feature, it’s not about offering 10 GB, 20 GB, or 100 GB of storage.
For a social collaboration product to truly be successful. We need to focus on a few things:
The long-term vision and opportunity for collaboration products is very interesting, compelling and potentially disruptive across multiple product categories, from file sharing to social and email, to voice and video. But first, we need to move past square 1.

Robert Ross’ session at the E2 Conference is called Big Data: Architecting Systems at Speed. Most people think the fundamental problem presented by Big Data is one of volume. It’s not. It’s speed: How to process realtime streams of information rapidly enough to make meaningful decisions quickly. Creating systems that do this requires fundamentally rethinking how data processing is architected. Designers need to know things like:

David Zilberman’s session at E2 Conference is called, BYOD into the Cloud: The Next Phase of Enterprise Mobility. Enterprise mobility is in the midst of a rapid phase of evolution and innovation. Employees are becoming more mobile, and those same employees want and need to bring their own devices (BYOD) into the enterprise’s cloud and other resources; allowing them to do so also stands to boost the enterprise’s bottom line. Cloud capabilities, which empower mobile employees everywhere to access and synch their work across devices and the recent spike in computing power on consumer-level mobile devices, render BYOD the inevitable next frontier for the mobile enterprise. This session will explore the challenges presented by recent evolutions in the first-gen enterprise mobility vendor ecosystem, mobile device and cloud computing capabilities, and employee adoption and usage trends. It will also present impactful case studies of software and innovations currently aimed to solve for BYOD issues.
