Six Flags was recently awarded a spot on the technology innovator InformationWeek 500 list, and with good reason: Over the last few years, the entire Six Flags team worked to revamp company infrastructure and define IT best practices. A large part of this process was a business initiative that, through the use of both on-premise and cloud-based technologies, improved how employees share and manage content.
But before it embraced the cloud, Six Flags hit a major roadblock: Sharing externally was a pain since email and FTP weren’t up to the challenge. Neither solution would allow them to share large files, which was a deal breaker for a company that relies on sharing internal media assets with external vendors.
Sean Anderson, the director of Interactive Services, evaluated a few options and discovered that many consumer solutions wouldn’t scale well in an enterprise environment. Six Flags decided to try out Box and was immediately surprised by how easy it was for its end users to start sharing files. “It’s impressive that an enterprise system like Box is so simple to use,” states Anderson.
With Box, the Six Flags team can now share large media assets without the hassles of on-premise solutions or email. Best of all, Anderson can now see progress on files through user comments and downloads, which provide him with a useful audit process that he never had before.
