SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Syncplicity, the leader of the hybrid enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) market, today announced its partnership with Major League Baseball (MLB) and its upcoming presentation at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo. In the midst of playoff season and beyond, MLB relies on Syncplicity for securely powering their digital workplace – including control over where files are stored, access to files from any device, anywhere and stopping the use of unsanctioned cloud-based applications.
Syncplicity's relationship with MLB started in 2013. MLB was looking for an IT approved solution for their users in an effort to stop use of unsanctioned consumer solutions. From that point forward, the relationship has grown exponentially into a true partnership, with Syncplicity helping MLB meet the needs of its increasingly digital workforce.
"Our users love the usability of Syncplicity, but we chose Syncplicity because of their hybrid-cloud architecture and the ability to store data where we want to," said Dan Gainey, manager of IT operations for MLB. "Information and information control are critical to MLB and our events. With Syncplicity, we are confident that we are keeping information secure, while being able to share data with the right people quickly and easily. Syncplicity has been the right choice for MLB – from our first use cases, to becoming a platform for modernizing our infrastructure, to providing our employees and teams with a secure digital workplace."
"MLB is a great example of one of our customers leveraging Syncplicity to digitally transform their business," said Jon Huberman, CEO of Syncplicity. "Our hybrid-cloud architecture gives MLB and the teams in the league the ability to redefine how they communicate, collaborate and retain their confidential information."
Dan Gainey, manager of IT operations for MLB, will be presenting at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando on Wednesday, October 19 at 10:15 a.m. ET to discuss how the MLB has leveraged Syncplicity to modernize its IT systems and empower its digital workforce. No prior registration, other than for the conference itself, is needed. Syncplicity will be located at conference booth #715 and executives who can also speak to the company's relationship with MLB will be onsite.
Mr. Gainey also will be presenting EFSS use cases, including how Syncplicity has helped with team collaboration on the road, controlling licensed images, among others. For more information, please visit http://www.gartner.com/events/na/orlando-symposium#!speakerDetails-11134499
