Qumu Receives "Positive" Rating in Leading Industry Analyst Firm Marketscope ReportNew Video Content Management and Delivery Report Reviews Qumu Capabilities (February 17, 2011)
SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/11 -- Qumu was rated "Positive" in Gartner's recently issued MarketScope for Video Content Management and Delivery.
In the MarketScope, Gartner VP and Distinguished Analyst Whit Andrews notes that enterprises "are intrigued by the collaborative and operational possibilities inherent in providing shared video content services that mimic popular online sites such as YouTube and Facebook." And that "informally generated video content is becoming an increasingly valuable and popular aspect of their strategies." Those surveyed believe their live and on-demand video use will increase by more than 40% over the next few years.
"Gartner's positive rating, which we believe is based on our emphasis in supporting more delivery models than most other vendors and extending our reach through partnerships with Polycom and AT&T, is strong confirmation of our company strategy," said Ray Hood, Qumu CEO. "In addition, Gartner has indicated that both Video and Mobile Applications are among the top ten strategic technologies for IT in 2011*, which we feel validates the importance of our recently announced mobile video solution."
The Qumu Mobility Application (QMA) delivers enterprise-class video to a host of devices, including Apple iPhone & iPad, Google Android smart phones and tablets, as well as BlackBerry mobile devices. QMA also meets stringent requirements for enterprise mobility by affording controlled and secure access to important video content available anywhere through Wi-Fi and 3G/4G networks.
