Jason Cornell headshot1) What’s one technology trend that you see driving business transformation?

Cloud Services with the ability to provision and leverage Infrastructure, Platform or Software services in near real-time.

3) What BoxWorks speaker or session (aside from your own) are you most excited about?

“Gaze into the Crystal Ball: The Box Roadmap”.

4) What’s your favorite device for getting work done?

My iPad. I can access everything I need no matter where I may be allowing me to stay productive on the go.

5) What advice would you give to someone starting his/her career in your industry?

Learn as much as possible about as many disciplines as you can to find what you enjoy. I believe in what Confucius once said, “Find a job you love and you will never work another day in your life.”

6) What blogs do you check daily?

Several years ago I could rattle off several but today I leverage my Twitter feed and apps like Zite for content that would interest me and don’t directly visit many blogs directly anymore.
