No matter where you rank in the streaming media food chain, somebody is always gunning for you.  Yesterday, it was Kaltura launching VPaas – a video platform-as-a-service – taking aims at the likes of Microsoft and IBM in an emerging battle to create developer-friendly environments that foster the creation and distribution of a fresh breed of streaming solutions.

It’s official: the long-percolating concept of using “platform-as-a-service” (PaaS) solutions to enable streaming applications has become a certifiable “industry trend.”

At least that’s the only conclusion I can draw after hearing about today’s latest product announcement from Kaltura -  a streaming video platform vendor that has never let a good marketing buzzword go to waste.

I hate being the jaded one in the room – particularly when I’m hanging around folks who are excited about the promise and opportunity that comes with technology innovation in the world of streaming.

I recently had the opportunity to meet with Atos SE, the French IT services company that is now the new owner of Unify.  As the famous saying goes and our history highlights, “what a long strange trip it’s been.”   Unify, headquartered in Munich, Germany, is the relatively new name for a company that has deep roots in enterprise voice communications.  The company provides software-based enterprise communications, ergo voice, web collaboration, video conferencing, contact center, and networking products and services.  Its two primary brands today are 1)

We reported recently on Logitech’s Q4/16 and FY16 retail sales of $431M and $1,947M, respectively.  The company tracks its business in four “growth” (the first four in our charts below) and five “profit maximization” categories.  This week we looked more closely at the nine segments individually, as shown in the first chart, which plots segment revenues as a percentage of total revenues for both Q4 and the fiscal year 2016.  The second chart shows growth rates quarter over qu

Losing out on a Wall Street IPO may not necessarily be the worst thing in the world for a webcasting company.

Take the case of ON24, which five years ago fumbled in its attempts to launch an initial public stock offering. Despite being one of the industry’s most high-profile providers of managed webcast services, the ON24 brand has since shouldered the stigma that comes with being “the company that couldn’t get Wall Street interested.”

Everybody in tech knows Crossing the Chasm, Geoffrey Moore’s seminal book from the 1990’s.  To tech marketers, it’s the Bible when it comes to figuring out how to take product from early adopter to mainstream phase. It’s almost a cliché in the tech industry that when you cross the chasm you’ve “made it” and are mainstreamed.
