Issue: Who are the content management providers and how will they evolve?

Summary: Aragon Research introduces its first Aragon Research Globe for video content management. It examines 14 providers in a market that is growing fast, due to an explosion in video content and the need to manage it effectively.

Introduction

Video has fast become an invaluable enterprise asset. With mobile devices and cloud access to video content, it has exploded across consumer and business spectrums. However, due to its increased usage, it needs to be managed throughout its lifecycle just like any other content type. Overall network and WAN optimization strategies are also crucial to guarantee quality video delivery.

The Aragon Research Globe for Video Content Management covers the technology and service providers that allow an enterprise to manage and deliver all forms of video. Social and mobile lead the pack in user demand, as does the need for easy access to a live class or a recorded one. The vendors with the best strategies understand this and have been doing makeovers of their offerings to support the “YouTube for the enterprise” that business users desire.
