The clock is ticking for enterprise file-sharing companies after their brightest star, Box, filed for an IPO.
FORTUNE -- How many enterprise file-sharing services whose names don't start and end with the word "Box" can the market support? Probably not as many as are currently out there.

Want to work at Tableau Software? You might have to get an Academy Award first.
FORTUNE -- Most big data companies don't recruit Hollywood types, and most weren't co-founded by executives with three Academy Awards under their belt.
Tableau Software (DATA), a Seattle-based provider of data visualization tools, is a little bit different. Founded by Pat Hanrahan, an early employee at Pixar Animation Studios, along with co-founders Christian Chabot and Chris Stolte, the company claims its MOREMichal Lev-Ram, writer - Mar 28, 2014 12:11 PM ET
Every tech company needs to woo developers. But a coming IPO accelerates the case for Aaron Levie's file storage company.
FORTUNE -- Box most often gets compared to online storage competitor Dropbox. But increasingly, it seems the soon-to-be-public startup is following the path of enterprise tech heavyweight Microsoft (MSFT). Why?

Forget Telepresence. The networking giant's new systems are intended for small- and medium-sized businesses.
FORTUNE -- Cisco Systems (CSCO) has long realized that most companies don't have the need or the money to buy its pricey and bulky Telepresence technology, an elaborate videoconferencing system that combines 65-inch screens, cameras, integrated lighting, and even custom-made desks.
To push its collaboration wares into a wider range of corporate customers' conference rooms, the company is MOREMichal Lev-Ram, writer - Mar 13, 2014 2:05 PM ET
Updates to its Office 365 suite show benefits from a 2008 acquisition.
FORTUNE -- Microsoft (MSFT) has a spotty track record when it comes to acquisitions. (Remember Danger, Massive, and WebTV? Yeah, neither do we.) But snapping up enterprise search startup Fast Search & Transfer for $1.2 billion back in 2008 may prove to have been a prescient move.
