  • 10. Market Trends • Video is now commonplace (YouTube, Google, Skype, etc) • End-users no longer ask “what is webcasting” … – Today’s it’s “how can it help me make $ / compete / communicate” • Have it your way (via customization) is now the norm – And it’s not just branding … it’s features / functionality / workflow • Video is coming to you (PC, set-top, tablet, phone, etc.) – The “what format is it” question is giving way to “which devices” • Webcasting is no longer an island / silo – Integration w/directory systems, scheduling systems, learning management systems, sales systems, social media, etc.© 2011 Wainhouse Research, LLC. 10
  • 11. Market Trends • Companies of all sizes are using webcasting – It’s not just for large enterprises • More form factors / business models than ever before – Fully managed, self serve – Product-based (CPE), hosted, SaaS / VaaS / Cloud, etc. • Content delivery is becoming strategic vs. reactive – Multi-cast, caching, peer to peer (P2P), CDNs, etc. • Reporting is morphing into advanced analytics – ROI calculations, lead generation and measurement, etc. • More enterprises are depending on webcasting to help them communicate and compete© 2011 Wainhouse Research, LLC. 11
  • 12. Market Futures • Massive volumes of content – Both higher quality AND lower quality • User generated content (UGC) will become a reality – More volume, more immediacy, less polish • Penetration of video into daily workflow and process – Integration with team workspaces, groupware, etc. • Increased focus on metadata, indexing, search-ability, etc. – Making content “finable” is a key part of making it valuable • Increased inclusion of social networking features – Content ratings, comments, etc. (to show us content worth our time) • Understanding that on-demand is often BETTER than live – This is an indicator that video has really arrived© 2011 Wainhouse Research, LLC. 12
  • 13. Summary and Final Thoughts • This is a GREAT time for the streaming / webcasting space – We’re past the early technology hiccups – We’re past the time of start-ups and questionable performance – We’re past the “nobody understand the benefits” phase • For users, this is the “have it your way” period – Your content, your deployment method, your business model, your media types and formats, your delivery methods, your playback devices, etc. • For vendors, this is the time of awakening – New customers, markets, applications, capabilities, etc. – Strong demand resulting in strong market growth – year after year© 2011 Wainhouse Research, LLC. 13
