Company Recognized for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute in Research Report
For the second time in a row, Gartner has positioned MediaPlatform as a Leader in its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Video Content Management, published this week.
According to Gartner, “Leaders in this market have developed flexible, extensible products that are effective in a variety of use cases. We expect these vendors to have strong and viable futures. Leaders are in a solid financial position.”
“We work very hard to support our customers’ success and we are very grateful to them for helping us rise over the last four years,” said Mike Newman, CEO of MediaPlatform. “We believe that Gartner is trusted by the IT innovators and decision-makers who evaluate solutions like ours, so it is especially gratifying to be recognized as a Leader in this report,” Newman said.
MediaPlatform has enjoyed exceptional growth with more than 150 global multinational customers in North America, the UK, Australia and the Middle East that have adopted MediaPlatform’s purpose-driven business broadcasting solutions as a significant upgrade from ‘best effort’ desktop web conferencing or meeting solutions. MediaPlatform’s technology lets these companies deliver premium-quality content – securely – to tens of thousands of live viewers over the corporate network that viewers can watch regardless of device, OS, browser or network connection.
The growth is the result of an expanded global sales and marketing focus lead by streaming video pioneer and Accordent Technologies founder Mike Newman, adding industry veterans Craig Myers, VP Worldwide Sales, Paul Reeves, Head of EMEA Sales, and Darian Germain, VP Marketing to his leadership team. The moves have accelerated the company’s direct sales efforts and extended its reach via a growing partner network spanning the UK, Germany, France, Eastern Europe, Australia, Africa and the Middle East.
MediaPlatform continues to invest in the technology that has fueled its customer success, retention and growth. In addition to its live webcasting and video-on-demand platform, MediaPlatform’s analytics suite delivers unique, 360-degree insights that help webcasting teams understand and measure how their video is performing. Its analytics suite includes a Network QOS Dashboard – which lets network operations teams drill down into live webcasts to identify and correct issues down to the subnet and individual user level; a Management Dashboard – which lets companies assess and track the ‘long tail’ value of their recorded video content; and a new Event Success Dashboard that provides real-time insights into how audiences are responding to and engaging with presented content and intuitive video quality indicators.
