The file sharing and collaboration space is typified by two distinct perspectives on growth. The first says that user numbers are everything and that revenue shouldn’t be a key driver for vendors looking to take advantage of the land grab that currently exists. The second, more conservative approach perhaps has its genesis in the dotcom burst and says that while user numbers are good, deriving meaningful revenue from customers is the most important thing. Proponents of this approach are looking for growth in users, but not at the expense of growing revenue.
