“We are honored to receive this recognition from Gartner and be placed in the Challengers quadrant,” said Jim McGovern, CEO MediaPlatform. “We feel this is validation of the investments we have made in product development and with our recently secured $12 million round of growth equity, MediaPlatform is positioned to expand our global sales and marketing operations. An upcoming partnership announcement with a leader in the videoconferencing space, as well as the forthcoming release of our video business intelligence dashboard will further differentiate MediaPlatform in the enterprise video content management space.”
According to the report from Whit Andrews, VP Distinguished Analyst and Adam Preset, Principal Research Analyst, “enterprise video for education and training as well as corporate communications has become more common as the YouTube era continues to mature and entertainment of online origin grows in prominence in employees’ and consumers’ personal lives.”*
MediaPlatform is a pioneer in developing a single enterprise solution with full deployment flexibility for delivering live webcasting and on-demand video to internal and external audiences of unlimited size.
