Future of Filesharing Insights from Jeetu Patel
In a live Twitter interview, Jeetu Patel (@jpatel41), general manager of Syncplicity by Axway, joined Jeff Schultz (@syncplicity), head of marketing, to discuss the future of file sharing and the changing nature of enterprise software. If you missed the exchange, we captured the highlights for you below.
How is SaaS Transforming IT?
Software as a Service (SaaS) is transforming IT because IT can expand usage as users adopt, and shorten the time from purchase to value. They don't have to worry about systems management, scaling hardware as users adopt, etc. and it means vendors can’t rest on their laurels! We need to keep innovating quickly.
What challenges does that present to IT?
The main challenge for IT is to select services that their users will love and protect corporate data, even in the cloud. SaaS application for business must be built from the ground up with enterprise-grade security, controls, and admin tools. Our customers want the option to have storage on premise and they love the benefits that come from both Isilon and Atmos. It gives them the best of all worlds - frictionless user experience and enterprise-grade compliance.
What is driving enterprises to consider file sync and sharing solutions?
At the basic level, users want a Dropbox for the Enterprise. IT is looking for ways to support user choice, both for these apps as well as devices, #BYOD.
What does the future hold for #Syncplicity by Axway and #SaaS in the enterprise?
Despite all the noise in the market, we are at the beginning of a major shift with how users work and collaborate and how IT supports them. We're delivering compelling new user and IT features on a monthly release cadence and going to market integrated with technologies & infrastructure that enterprises require, & ability to provide support on a global scale. Recent releases include Windows 8 Phone App and Microsoft Surface App, new audit and usage reports, and our on-premise option with Enterprise Edition.
Stay tuned for our next Twitter interview!

Syncplicity by Axway Launches Updated Administrator Dashboard
Get a quick view of Syncplicity by Axway seat and storage consumption to help you effectively manage file storage capacity.
File storage, sharing, and syncing is a balancing act from the IT perspective. As files and file versions multiply across users and devices, storage capacity is quickly consumed. Some businesses need all files saved indefinitely. Others regularly delete files for compliance reasons or to optimize storage use. With Syncplicity by Axway, it’s your choice.
Our new dashboard gives you a snapshot that you can act on immediately. At a glance, you’ll know how much storage capacity is used by active files vs. deleted or older versions. Pre-built reports help you drill down to the details. To make adjustments, simply click the add more storage button or use our robust policy management tools to purge files.
With the dashboard you can:
- Add seats or storage with the click of a button.
- See when you need to purge inactive and deleted files.
- View your storage consumption history to spot trends
- Drill down to reports at the user, folder or file level.
We hope this helps you stay ahead of new seat and storage requirements and more effectively manage your capacity. Login to your admin account today and check it out. How do you plan to use it? Let us know below!
