Box Relay is Notes all over again

by Volker Weber

Box Relay is a new type of workflow solution that is targeted at business users who need to create, share and track simple workflows. It is designed to help you get your work done more efficiently. Box Relay will not replace traditional business process and case management tools but will complement them.

If you habe been in this business long enough, the irony of Box Relay is not lost on you. This is exactly how Lotus Notes started. Move simple workflows out of email. Bottom up, from the departmental level.

Box Relay is designed for the extended enterprise and workflows can include participants in other companies such as your customers, suppliers and partners. There is no need for IT to define external users in your directory - Box Relay utilizes the capabilities in Box to support external users securely and efficiently.

This time however, it works across company borders.

It will be interesting to see what this integrates with; i.e. MS powerapps, something within the IBM cloud ecosystem; because otherwise it's just another document-based workflow tool. Plenty of those out there.

Looks like MS flow

I thought the extract was form some small young hipster SF startup.

Imagine my surprise.

What Ian said.

Does the announcement count as marketing? :-)

For me the question is: When will IBM buy Box?

Connections and Verse are working smoothly with Box and it looks like it is the preferred solution for file storage and sharing. The IBM Channel tries to sell Box at the moment.
And now the new Box Relay.

For IBM the 1.82B Mkt. cap of Box looks cheap ...

I think it's cheaper to stick with the partnership. For both of them.

René Winkelmeyer, 2016-09-07

As René said. And of course there is a chance, Box will develop, when not owned by IBM.

I can't count how many times I had that conversation this week.
