Eyes on the Enterprise

These numbers reflect a clear trend, demonstrating how enterprise corporations are utilizing these technologies to inform, educate, and instruct both inside and outside their organizations. But don’t let these numbers fool you. Today, enterprises are using streaming media across all divisions. Even though webcasting and Web conferencing are growing the fastest, corporations are not by any stretch of the imagination using streaming technology exclusively for one-off communication events. Enterprise corporations are implementing streaming media along with their other core technologies, treating it as a real business communication tool in every vertical imaginable.

"Corporations who used to contact us to do just one-off events are now calling looking for ways to incorporate streaming media into every part of the business," says VitalStream’s Napoleon. And VitalStream, like any good service provider, responds to those corporations by tailoring their solutions—which range from video-on-demand to managed streaming servers to content encoding—to each customer’s specific needs. And lest you think that only large enterprises can benefit from streaming media, VitalStream’s experience shows that streaming’s ROI potential is as strong for organizations with 1,000 employees as it is for corporations with 100,000 on staff.
