Ranking Enterprise YouTubes: Gartner Updates its Magic Quadrant
Companies looking to create an internal video system—an enterprise YouTube—will want to download this year's Gartner magic quadrant for enterprise video content management. The report analyzes 17 players in the field, rating them on their ability to execute and their completeness of vision. A graph, reproduced below, separates those competitors into leaders, challengers, visionaries, and niche players.
Not much has changed in the leaders box, the spot at the top right of the chart that shows only the cream of the crop. Qumu, Kaltura, and Panopto again take top honors, as they did in 2014. Qumu and Kaltura were rated leaders in 2013, as well.
In creating this year's report, Gartner notes that it gave more weight this time to platforms that support internal, worker-facing installations, following the demands of enterprise customers. While streaming video to customers, suppliers, and partners who are outside the organization is seen as more important than it was in previous years, it doesn’t have equal weight with streaming video in-house.
Kaltura is making the full report available for free download (registration required), as is Panopto. The report includes not only the magic quadrant itself, but a detailed list of strengths and weaknesses for each of the ranked competitors.
Five vendors—Brightcove, MediaPlatorm, Kaltura, Panopto, and Qumu—are ranked as leaders in the latest version of the quadrant.
The demand for enterprise video content management is growing, and so are the number of players. Three providers earn top marks.
In a survey of 12 enterprise video content management specialists, Gartner singles out two as category leaders.
