Next-Generation Collaboration: How Cloud-Based Tools are Supercharging Teams

45 minutes

Collaborative platforms are changing the ways people work and share information. Today’s leading cloud-hosted file-sharing platforms are conducive to generating new ideas and insights, and they’re also secure. These solutions offer easy access to files and engage team members. Collaboration becomes more organic and energized amid enhanced data security, ultimately leading to optimized performance.

Forbes Insights Analyst and Contributor Bill Millar and Dropbox Head of International Trust & Security Mark Crosbie discuss key questions such as:

  • In what ways are cloud-enabled information sharing solutions transforming collaboration and team performance? 
  • Who is best-suited to lead this revolution – IT, end-users, or both – and what is the optimal path forward? 
  • How can businesses achieve a better balance between end user needs for more effective collaboration tools with the IT mission of protecting company data?
  • In what ways can a cloud-based collaborative tool actually enhance data privacy and security?
  • What lessons can be learned from first-movers in today’s cloud-enabled collaboration?
