Our team is at IBM Connect 2014 this week, showing off our new integration with IBM’s social business portals. As part of the Connect 2014 event, we’re taking part in an App Throwdown competition. IBM invited us to submit a video that showcased the depth and breadth of our integration with their social business portals.

IBM App Throwdown first round live demo winnersThis video got us into the first round of the live demo competition. The use cases for IBM Connections and enterprise video are so great that we decided to create a whole new scenario for the live demo: Using speech search, an employee is able to find a specific moment in a long webcast, crop out just the pertinent section and insert it into a blog to share with employees around the company network.

We won the first live round (nice job John Greenstein and Brian Deeley!) and will be once again demonstrating that our integration with IBM social business portals is how business does video in the final round of the IBM Connect App Throwdown on Wednesday morning.
