Germany was the place to be when the Enterprise Business Collaboration 2018 event took place at Hotel Meliá in Berlin late November. Axway was on hand as a proud sponsor of the event, including Robert Melzer, EMEA’s Customer Success Engineer for Syncplicity who gave a rousing speech on choosing effective EFSS solutions.
Enterprise Business Collaboration event
The Enterprise Business Collaboration event is a wonderful networking opportunity, bringing together industry leaders who are involved in enterprise collaboration and the digital workplace. With over three days to network, as well as the opportunity to hear different workshops and sessions from influential speakers, over 200 people came together to connect and talk about the potential state of the digital landscape in enterprise collaboration.

Thanks in part to the many industry heavyweights, the event was a huge success for panel discussions, workshops and networking. The event took place in a laid-back setting that allowed for easier access to industry people who might not otherwise interact.
Many industry leaders gave fascinating presentations and workshops on topics starting day one, from “Using cognitive services as an icebreaker in collaboration systems,” “How AI will change everything we know about videos” to “How to manage change and adoption the agile way.”
Effective EFSS solutions
As mentioned earlier, Axway’s Robert Melzer spoke to a captivated audience. His topic focused on “Seven strategic guidelines for selecting a modern Enterprise File Sharing and Content Collaboration Solution (CCP).” In his speech, he stated that medium-sized companies must have the ability to save their information in a hybrid cloud 24/7. Robert also presented use cases as examples of effective EFSS solutions. (Learn more about the 7 strategic guidelines for an effective EFSS solution.)
He framed his speech around the following categories:
- Productivity essentials
- GDPR, PCI and HIPAA
- Make Ransomware attacks useless
- Free choice of storage
- External sharing
- Machine collaboration
- Customer Success
Day two brought more information networking sessions and learning from industry leaders. Such topics that were covered ranged from “How to create processes that engage people into platforms, new or existing,” “How to find the best Enterprise Collaboration Solution by useful integrations?” to “Challenges at building and maintaining a corporate knowledge taxonomy.” Read more about secured file sharing and content collaboration for users, IT and security here.
