Companies move further and further away from the "stack," whether that's Microsoft, Oracle or Salesforce, and become more comfortable choosing best of breed technologies for their needs, including HR, CRM, ERP, Finance, Content Management and Collaboration. Open standards allows for easy integration. -- Whitney Bouck, General Manager, Box Enterprise at Box
