Cloud enables enterprise video solutions to rise to new levels

By Stephen Blankenship – VP of Product Management

Creating corporate messages is an important part of sharing the ideas and innovations of organizations with internal and third-party entities. These resources let businesses cultivate a unified impression of what companies want and how they think they can achieve these options. Building the same information inside the minds of personnel, whether they’re in a central office location, working remotely from home or in far-flung offices on the other side of the country, is easy with the right kind of video communication assets. New technology resources are making it simpler and more reliable for organizations to extend their training, relationship and informative recordings to personnel and partners of all kinds no matter where they are.

Improving sharing capabilities
Of course, creating these messages is only the first step in sharing information to personnel. If firms want to ensure that their staff members see these video deployments, they must be certain that they’re offering tools and enterprise video portals that facilitate the right kind of delivery options. While some organizations may take this capability for granted, there are a number of reasons that sharing video could be impeded by modern technology. Ensuring that companies have the right assets at their disposal is crucial before considering the kinds of video assets organizations want to employ.

Network communication capabilities continue to expand every year, with more connectivity capabilities and enhanced system features making it easier to access streaming enterprise video. At the same time, there are a mounting number of problems that companies may face when trying to share their video deployments. In instances where their recordings are too large or complex, it may be hard for personnel to stream these recordings and gain access to valuable insights. Though connectivity options are increasing, with better bandwidth and lower latency issues, the rise of mobile device usage in the corporate sphere is making it more difficult to coordinate video communication delivery to every viewer, no matter how, when or where they choose to view these messages.

The cloud has allowed video tools to become more flexible and intuitive, ITWeb wrote. The source stated that conferencing resources have long been too difficult for organizations to coordinate with their personnel, and in lieu of those video services, enterprise recordings have taken over the gap. This is thanks largely to the rise of cloud capabilities in the corporate sphere, making all recordings live at all times with hosted services that make throughput issues a thing of the past.

Looking for video opportunities
Divesh Nathoo, a business video expert, told ITWeb that it’s likely that the capabilities of the cloud will continue to bolster corporate endeavors and make their recorded deployments more accessible to a variety of clients.

“The cloud…removes the barrier to entry resulting from the need to invest in expensive infrastructure,” Nathoo told the source. “A hosted service in a neutral data centre on shared infrastructure allows for a flexible, fully scalable, pay-per-use model that makes

affordable, not only for large enterprises, but for small to medium-sized enterprises as well.”

Silicon Republic stated that the cloud helps small businesses and firms of all sizes create better inroads of communication while ensuring that these organizations all have the tools they need in order to connect with their personnel effectively. Video solutions may be useful on their own, but without a means of reliably delivering these assets to personnel, issuing companies will never be able to experience the return on investment they need to increase their operational efficiency or make these deployments financially viable.

Boosting connection signals
As Andreas Goerdeler of the Information Society and Media said at a recent European summit, companies must find ways to gain access to better network capabilities in order to share the education assets that are most vital to their ongoing operations. Smaller entities are the basis of solid commercial infrastructure in any nation, he told Silicon Republic, and when these organizations have access to flexible, intuitive sharing options, they can more easily manipulate how their personnel interact with their corporate messages.

With more cloud providers emerging all the time, the future of enterprise video portals and other communication resources could see interests strongly anchored in this digital infrastructure. Building better networks for sharing, communication and interaction is the easiest way for companies to ensure that, no matter what kinds of tools or where employees are accessing videos from, they will always have the ability to view and engage in corporate training messages. The value of these recordings could be increased exponentially thanks to the many corporate outlets cloud-enabled video communication tools create, be it among internal personnel or with clients, third parties and the general public.
