As Microsoft & Dropbox join forces, the death of file sync and share is one step closer | VentureBeat | Cloud | by Stuart Cochran, Huddle

Feature, not product/platform

"So, why is standalone EFSS slowly disappearing? File sync and share has always been about solving the problem of backing up a user’s documents, at the same time as making them available on all of the user’s devices, mobile as well as PC. However, as more and more applications, such as Microsoft Office, themselves move to the cloud, pure file sync and share solutions are becoming commoditized and appearing as a feature, both in productivity applications and more powerful team collaboration solutions. The latter, designed specifically to enable teams to work better together, increasing productivity, and creating new ways to interact with customers, partners and suppliers, is where the true value lies for enterprise and government organizations."
