Cisco’s John Chambers and Box’s Aaron Levie: The Full D11 Interview (Video)
When you first consider it, Cisco Systems CEO John Chambers and Box CEO Aaron Levie seem more likely to view technology trends shaping their businesses quite differently. Chambers, after all, is one of the industry’s longest-serving senior executives and would at first seem to represent the established way of doing things.
That establishment appears to be the very target that Levie, the young head of the up-and-coming cloud computing company Box, would like to disrupt. But it turns out that they see the world of enterprise information technology in surprisingly similar ways. Changes coming from cloud computing and improvements in networking are creating new opportunities for both companies, and they’re also talking about partnering. Below, video of their joint appearance at D: All Things Digital.
