Date: January 28, 2014

By: Brian Katz

Description: Brian Katz talks with Ben Haines (@bhaines0), former CIO of Pabst and current CIO of Box.net about all SaaS IT, real-life BYOD success, managing MDM and Mobile Devices and how Ben saved the Twinkie from extinction.

Topic 1: Ben saves the Twinkie. Pabst acquired Hostess and found some very old technology. Had to move it from old to new in 3 weeks. Here’s what Ben did to save the Twinkie and how he did it at Pabst originally.

Topic 2: BYOD – or how I moved Pabst to 100% bring your own device. How stipends figured into it and the difference between phones and tablets.

Topic 3: The use case is important. You have to understand the use case and how that fits with devices and the choices that you make.

Topic 4: Being the first CIO at Box, what’s it look like?

Topic 5: What’s it like supporting mobile devices at Box?

Topic 6: Box is starting to move into Mobile Content Management. What do you see happening from the inside?
