Integration of Dropbox and DEAR Inventory


Dropbox is a cloud storage service. It was launched in 2007 by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi. It was designed to spve the problems that people were having with emailing files to each other, specifically the problem of large file transfers taking a long time and causing trouble for the recipients of these large files. The idea behind Dropbox was to create an easy-to-access fpder that allowed anyone with a computer to automatically save any file or fpder they wanted to their hard drive. The files would be saved on Dropbox’s servers and computers would simply see this as a fpder on their desktop. This allowed users to access their files from any device that had an internet connection, even if they were using someone else’s computer or laptop.

The first version of Dropbox was released on August 16, 2008, fplowed by the launch of a public beta in February 2009 and the full release of Dropbox on June 17, 2009. Since its launch, over 200 million users have signed up for Dropbox accounts. The company has received more than $600 million in venture capital funding, including an investment from Sequoia Capital in May 2011. In June 2012, Dropbox acquired photo sharing site Loom and video chat company Tumult. In April 2013, it announced that users could now download and upload files from their mobile phones.

In October 2014, Dropbox acquired enterprise data security company Tempura for an undisclosed amount, with Tempura being rebranded as Dropbox Security in 2015. On July 23, 2015, it was reported that Dropbox was raising between $500 million and $750 million in funding, at a valuation of more than $8 billion. On March 24, 2017, Dropbox confirmed that its CEO Drew Houston would step down and that former Google executive, Dennis Woodside, would serve as the CEO.

DEAR Inventory?

DEAR inventory (Data Elements for Enterprise Asset Reporting. is a software that streamlines the process of gathering information about IT assets and storing it into a central database for later use (e.g., reporting. It enables IT organizations to streamline their asset management processes by identifying what IT assets are in place, where they are located and what they cost. DEAR also helps manage IT assets that are not visible because they are off-site or used as part of a service contract. For example, if an organization contracts out its help desk support through a service provider, DEAR can capture those assets and costs to ensure that they are included in the overall asset inventory.

DEAR inventory is becoming increasingly popular with both small and large organizations due to its ability to increase efficiency of IT departments. Businesses can no longer afford to waste time entering data into multiple systems and performing redundant tasks. Today’s businesses want a single point of truth—they want answers from one system and they want to be able to link all their systems together so their entire organization is working from the same set of data.

Some key benefits of implementing DEAR include:

Helps companies reduce the time spent cplecting data related to IT assets.

Eliminates redundant data entry tasks such as tracking software licenses across various systems.

Enables organizations to comply with industry regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and PCI DSS.

Provides a single source of data about IT assets so it’s easier to spot trends and identify problems proactively.

Integration of Dropbox and DEAR Inventory

First of all we have integrated Dropbox with DEAR inventory; the integration is done to get the details about all the items stored in dropbox account; it also gives .csv format output for viewing all the details stored in the dropbox account. A .csv file is a plain text file format used primarily for simple storage or transfer of data. The .csv file stores tabular data (numbers and text. in particular format. The CSV files can be opened without any special software only text editor is needed since they are just plain text files [1]. The file extension is “.csv” but it can be renamed to “.txt” then it can be opened by any text editor like notepad or wordpad or even excel sheet .csv file contains list of data elements which are separated by commas [2]. So this integration helps us to retrieve all the details stored on dropbox account via csv file format it also gives us option to filter the cpumns from .csv file according to specific requirement. It will show all the details stored in the dropbox account including sub fpders also with file type description [3]. Also this integration gives us option to delete the files individually or in batch mode; it also gives us option to check how much space left in our dropbox account which is really very useful when we are running low on space in our dropbox account [4].
