2014 marked a watershed year for the online video industry. Major events like the World Cup and Sochi Winter Olympics, among others, helped drive unprecedented numbers of viewers to their connected devices to watch live streams delivered by rights holders around the world. This was acutely evident at Akamai, where the World Cup became the largest live sporting event we ever delivered and Winter Olympics traffic was more than 50% greater than the previous Summer Games. Despite this remarkable year, we know we’ve only scratched the surface. Akamai is addressing the complexities of today’s Internet landscape while innovating to solve tomorrow’s challenges, particularly as more consumers are watching more content online and demanding higher levels of quality. At the core of these efforts is the Akamai Intelligent Platform, providing customers of all sizes with unmatched scale and reach to engage audiences across a growing range of devices, networks and geographies. Through the combination of Akamai’s technology and employees who are passionately dedicated to our customers’ success, we’re working to realize the potential of a hyperconnected world by enabling the best online experiences and transforming the way people live, work and play.
