As we begin to wrap up the year, we were delighted to have been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner 2016 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Video Content Management . Enterprises are increasingly under pressure to manage their video content effectively. To help businesses choose the best technology provider for their needs, Gartner prepares this annual report.
This year, Kaltura is positioned the furthest for “Completeness of Vision”. This is the fourth year in a row that Kaltura has been cited as a Leader in this report, and the second consecutive year as furthest in “Completeness of Vision”.
“After another great year across the board, we are honored to, once again, be formally recognized by Gartner as a market leader, positioning us the furthest for completeness of vision in our industry,” said our Chairman and CEO, Ron Yekutiel. “Kaltura aspires to represent everything video, with the goal of ‘powering ANY video experience.’ As a result, we have built the most robust, modular, and flexible platform in the market, which is being used for the widest range of use cases by companies of all sizes in all industries around the world. We are committed to continuing our path of rapid innovation and wide collaboration in 2017 and beyond.”
Increasingly, video has become an important data type that has already penetrated many workflows and experiences and is continuously growing in volume, as well as use cases that require support. Video is still, however, complicated to manage, deliver, search, analyze and administrate in many cases. In order to ensure that video is a first-class data type, we’re focusing on driving innovation and momentum in two main areas: convergence and openness.
We’re striving to accelerate video convergence by accepting content from across video sources and inputs, from personal capture to high-quality live events. That’s also why we support a full range of video contexts and workflows and delivers to a wide variety of video endpoints, from video portals to enterprise systems to any screen in an enterprise from handheld devices to digital signage.
Another key value is openness. We strive to keep our video platform open through our open APIs. By leading the way with initiatives such as the Open Video Capture format and Caliper analytics, we’re helping build a video ecosystem that allows users the greatest flexibility possible. With tools that create rich videos with easily searchable metadata and advanced interactive features, Kaltura allows users to create videos that are anything but opaque. Through our Video Platform as a Service (VPaaS), companies are easily customizing and building their own video experiences and workflows. We continue to foster openness and collaboration within our open source community, which is already more than 120,000 members strong.
So we take great pride in this acknowledgment in the Gartner 2016 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Video Content Management for our innovation and leadership. We look forward to a 2017 dedicated to even greater achievement.
