It feels like the just the other day when I met a passionate French entrepreneur in the bar on the 15th floor of the Hilton Times Square to discuss Nuxeo. I remember being interested in the space, which I then viewed as next-generation content management (which, by the way, seemed extraordinarily in need of a next generation) and today what we’d call a content services platform (CSP) — in Nuxeo’s case, with a strong digital asset management angle.
I remember being impressed with the guy, Eric Barroca, as well. If I could check my notebook from that evening, I’m sure I’d see written: “smart, goes fast, no BS.” Eric remains one of the few people who — when he interrupts me saying “got it” — that I’m quite sure that he does.
To me, Nuxeo is a tale of technology leadership combined with market focus, teamwork, and leadership. All to produce a great result.
