Enterprise Video as a Service™ platform expands reach of video conferencing, enables large-scale crisis communication, and helps organizations minimize business travel
Minneapolis, March 3, 2020 – Qumu, the leading provider of Enterprise Video as a Service (EVaaS)™ technology for the intelligent enterprise, has once again been named by Aragon Research as a Contender in the 2020 Aragon Research Globe for Web and Video Conferencing. The Aragon Research Globe covers 19 web and video conferencing vendors, and places each into one of four segments—Leader, Contender, Innovator or Specialist—based on dimensions of analysis which include performance, global reach and strategy-related criteria. Other companies covered in this year’s Research Globe include Zoom, Cisco, Google and Microsoft.
Although Qumu has been named a Leader five times in the Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2020 marks Qumu’s second appearance in the Research Globe for Web and Video Conferencing.
“Qumu’s back-to-back placement as a Contender in the exploding web and video conferencing space underscores the importance global organizations are placing on crisis communications, and using video as a substitute for business travel during these uncertain times,” said Vern Hanzlik, President and CEO of Qumu. “Our platform is the perfect solution, helping enterprises turn their video conferencing platforms into full-featured streaming, webcasting and content creation engines that enable seamless global communication.”
As part of the 2020 Aragon Research Globe for Web and Video Conferencing1, Aragon analysts independently evaluated 19 web and video conferencing firms against a wide variety of criteria including Product Capability, Customer Experience, Global Reach, Market Awareness, Product Strategy, Management Team, Viability, Pricing, R&D Efforts and others. Customer references were also provided by each covered vendor, from every region where the vendor does business.
“Video streaming platforms are quickly becoming a key component of an overall enterprise-wide video collaboration strategy,” noted Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst for Aragon Research. “There is a powerful convergence underway between traditional video conferencing and video streaming, as organizations look for ways to leverage their video conferencing investments beyond small group meetings.”
