The Cloudcast #137 - APIs and Sharing Files

This podcast all came about because of the Krispy Kreme Challenge this year. The Cloudcast participated and so did the Raleigh Citrix Sharefile folks. So, this podcast is brought to you once again by donuts.

Topic 1 - Let’s start at the start. I’m a Citrix employee and I use ShareFile everyday. It has become one of those tools that I can’t live without now in this age of sharing files both internally and externally between organizations. If I had to describe it to people, is it fair to call it “Enterprise Dropbox?” How do you explain both Enterprise and Cloud File Sharing to others? What makes ShareFile different than Dropbox?

Topic 2 - Both Box and Dropbox received a ton of funding recently, but we are a few years in and there doesn’t seem to be a clear “winner” in this space. Why hasn’t anybody established themselves as the majority leader in this space? What are the features needed/requested?

Topic 3 - You recently wrote a blog on V3 of the ShareFile API (link in show notes). Tell us about that. You mention REST based API on JSON, oAuth for authentication, and the ability to capture metrics to better understand workflows. Why is that valuable? Are you looking for developers to add ShareFile integration into their applications?

Topic 4 - We are a few years into the BYOD trend. People are finally starting to think of the cloud as access your data, anywhere, any device. How challenging is it for you to make data available on multiple platforms (Windows, Mac, IOS, Android). Have we moved beyond people wanting Windows on their iPad so they can access files? Have the usage patterns changed over time?

Thank You to 2014 Krispy Kreme Sponsors and Donors!!

On the eve of the 2014 Krispy Kreme Challenge, we want to thank all of our sponsors and donors that helped us exceed our goal ($5000) and raise $5701 for the NC Children's Hospital. We are consistently humbled at how generous our listeners are and we are very proud to represent your generosity at the event tomorrow.  [NOTE: The difference in amounts from the donation area to the right is because we have a sponsor that gives directly to the NC Children's Hospital]
