Discover the Magic – Box named a leader in new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms
As a Box Reseller, CBA is excited to announce that Gartner has named Box a leader in the new Content Collaboration Platforms Magic Quadrant (MQ) report. Gartner Magic Quadrants evaluate vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision. Box was evaluated among 14 vendors in the market and was recognized as a leader in the strength of its vision for managing content.
The Content Collaboration Platforms MQ has evolved out of the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) MQ, which Box has been a leader in for the past 3 years.
Gartner evaluates Content Collaboration Platforms on numerous points. In particular, Box has consistently been recognized for usability, mobile enablement, internal and external collaboration, and blending those with security, data protection and integrations.
CBA has been been a Box partner for years and glad to see the product we’ve known to be best in class is finally getting recognized by Gartner. For more information on Box please visit our website. You can also view the full article by Joely Urton on Box’ blog.read more
The risk of data loss to sources outside of the company’s walls is a huge concern to executives and IT professionals alike. Controlling security is a full time job in and of itself. Firewalls, spam filters, open ports, closed ports so many things to be concerned with.
But what about documents that must be shared with customers and partners outside of your corporate walls? What about the burden of large confidential documents being sent via unsecured email as attachments – not only from an upload/download and storage perspective, but what about from a security perspective?!
Good news!! Now you can safely share documents and save your IT team from pulling their hair out because they can’t keep up with all of the demands put on them. CBA, Inc. offers a secure, cloud based solution to share and collaborate on documents internally or externally. Concerned about attachment send/receive limits?? No worries there either – they are sent as a link to the document rather than sending an actual document. How cool is that? Oh, and with an enterprise package, the sky’s the limit for storage space!!
Best of all, you can control who sees what, manage who opens what and you can integrate it with other applications – out of the BOX!!
Our partner company is growing extremely fast and their solution is being used by some pretty impressive companies on an enterprise and global level. Additionally impressive is that the price points make it attractive and accessible to all size organizations!
Just ask us! We are a “Choice Re-seller” Partner of BOX and we have already been doing installations for our customers who recognize a great thing when we show it to them!!
Call me and I can show you how to give your executives and IT professionals a good night’s sleep by protecting your documents while improving corporate collaboration – safely!

If you missed it in the endless stream of Oracle acquisitions, in September 2012 Oracle acquired the assets of Skire. Skire made it’s mark by providing a complete set of management and government tools across all project phases from planning and building to operations, enabling companies to effectively manage their capital and construction programs. By combining Skire with industry leading capabilities from Oracle Primavera products, Oracle intends to create a full life-cycle Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) platform that provides a comprehensive offering from capital planning and construction to operations and maintenance for owners and operators, contractors and sub-contractors. The ability to execute on that premise is being watched very closely by us at CBA and by extension our Primavera Contract Management customers. While this is an exciting development bringing a true SaaS model, cloud-based solution to the Primavera family, it also puts into question the future of traditional Primavera products especially that of Oracle Primavera Contract Management.
Oracle Primavera has already crowned Skire as the eventual replacement for Contract Management due primarily to the fact that Skire already contains 70% of the enhancement requests received for Contract Management. Right now Skire is in a sort of hibernation and is in controlled release until the first Oracle re-developed versions and new modules are released in January through March 2013 according to Oracle Primavera. For a sneak peak and an understanding of the Oracle roadmap for Skire, Oracle Primavera is hosting a webinar tomorrow December 5th, at 12:00 noon EST. Here is a link to register for the webinar https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=registration.jsp&eventid=541959&sessionid=1&key=1648A6E955E7AA28696AB99D2A8A881D&partnerref=bulletin&sourcepage=register. In the weeks and months to come we will continue to provide information and insight into this development. Our CBA Sales and Technicalstaff will be glad to answer any questions you may have to help you understand the strategy and direction of both Skire and Contract Management.read more
