Cloud-based enterprise content management vendor Box has launched a new developer website. The service has long courted developers, but this new site marks a heightened effort to reach out.
“People are now thinking about Box, not just as a mechanism for interacting with the content of the Box platform, but the content of any app,” Jeetu Patel, Box’s chief strategy officer and VP of the Platform group, said. “We are doing everything we can to remove the friction from the customer so that developers can build an application as fast as possible, while still making sure that enterprise requirements are addressed. We want to make this a completely fluid process for the developer.”
Box says that 75,000 developers are part of its ecosystem, and their apps are responsible for approximately 6 billion API calls every month.
