The Challenge: Create a SharePoint Hybrid Cloud Environment With Box
As a corporate enterprise, the company maintains a secured internal document management system that utilizes the Microsoft® SharePoint® platform. This system enables sharing documents created and modified throughout any project, for instance. Since DSI does not maintain a corporate extranet, it selected the Box® cloud platform as a central data repository and partner portal for sharing and collaborating with partners. The challenge was how to automatically synchronize its existing SharePoint security levels and complex folder structures seamlessly with Box.
