MediaPlatform Chosen as Innovator in The Aragon Research Globe™ for Second Year In a Row
The Aragon Research Globe™ evaluates providers in industry spaces, such as web and video conferencing platforms, beyond size and market share
LOS ANGELES, CA, DECEMBER 12, 2017 – MediaPlatform, Inc., the best-in-class enterprise video platform provider, is pleased to announce its inclusion as an Innovator in The Aragon Research Globe™ for Web and Video Conferencing for the second consecutive year. The Aragon Research Globe is an industry-wide market evaluation tool that helps analyze product markets and their associated vendors.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our innovation in enterprise webcasting and for the quality of our enterprise customer base,” stated Mike Newman, CEO, MediaPlatform. “As Aragon recognized in naming MediaPlatform an Innovator, we continue to invest heavily in our live webcasting capabilities, most notably our flexible delivery and failover capabilities, our integrations into leading web- and video- conferencing solutions, and our real-time quality-of-service analytics.”
Aragon cited MediaPlatform’s veteran expertise in enterprise video through its product offering, WebCaster, as the leading consideration in its inclusion in the 2017 Web and Conferencing Report. As the report notes, MediaPlatform’s strengths lie in its wide range of “video content management and live delivery” capabilities.
MediaPlatform’s offering extends beyond enterprise video management to also provide a video conferencing gateway, SmartBridge, that enables connectivity with other leading providers. The company’s integrations with Microsoft Skype for Business and SmartBridge have also bolstered its capacity for internal live streaming.
MediaPlatform has a long-standing integration with Microsoft Skype for Business and in 2017, it announced a partnership with Pexip, a virtual meeting platform that enables video conferencing and collaboration.
The report explains that MediaPlatform’s video portal offering, PrimeTime, offers a full set of APIs which will “enable MediaPlatform to continue to expand its integrations, which already include SharePoint and Cisco Webex.”
Aragon views MediaPlatform’s “growing solutions focus allows it to offer video-enabled business applications (VEBAs) for Consulting, Healthcare, Government, and Financial Services. Finally, MediaPlatform offers a growing set of analytics that should benefit both IT and Marketing teams.”
Aragon’s decision to include MediaPlatform in its market tool is based on the company’s webcasting and enterprise YouTube capabilities, its web conferencing integrations and videoconferencing gateway as well as its analytics offering for real-time QoS and QoE data and its event management and archiving tools.
The Aragon Research Globe determines leaders in industry spaces beyond size and market share. It utilizes three comparative factors in evaluating providers’ product-oriented capabilities, strategy, performance and reach. Aragon’s results are segmented into four sectors, representing high and low on both the strategy and performance dimensions: Specialists, Innovators, Contenders and Leaders. MediaPlatform has been included in the report for the second time as an Innovator.
