Accordent Receives "Postive" Rating from Leading Industry Analyst Firm
Accordent Evaluated in ‘MarketScope for Video Content Management and Delivery’
El Segundo, CA(09 Feb 2011)
Accordent Technologies was rated "Positive" in Gartner's recently issued "MarketScope for Video Content Management and Delivery," the highest rating achieved by the vendors profiled by the firm in the report.
In the MarketScope, Gartner VP and Distinguished Analyst Whit Andrews notes that organizations "are interested in the potential of sharing videos with workers, partners, clients and prospects," and that those surveyed believe their video use will increase by more than 40% over the next few years. Andrews cautions, however, that these organizations "must evaluate the impact that a substantial amount of video files will have on their storage and network infrastructures. They must also consider the consequences and opportunities that suddenly swollen video libraries will present in terms of finding, selecting and presenting videos, either for internal or external users."
"We're delighted to be working with Gartner, which has a deep and distinguished understanding of the VCMD space and has also named Video as one of the top ten strategic technologies for IT in 2011*," said Mike Newman, Accordent CEO. "This is further evidence of Accordent's thought leadership in shaping and defining the Video Content Management and Rich Media Delivery spaces within our Enterprise Video Management platform that are now being embraced by Gartner and other trusted market advisors.
"To us, receiving a positive rating based on our strong industry partnerships - including our integration with Microsoft SharePoint - and tradition of innovation is strong confirmation of our product and business development strategies," he said.
The Accordent Enterprise Video Management platform, which includes AMMS V4.0 as well as Accordent enterprise video capture products, removes the complexity of enterprise video by providing a single, streamlined application layer that automates best practices across all phases of the video communications lifecycle: from enterprise video capture, to portal services, to video content management, to rich media delivery across disparate network environments.
