|Scalability, security and ease of use are key purchase drivers, finds Frost & Sullivan|
|MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – March 10, 2015 –Enterprises are using live and on-demand video to train their workforce, drive marketing and engagement initiatives, and create cost savings, along with a slew of other efficiencies. The fast blurring lines between consumer and enterprise spaces, growth of BYOD (bring your own device) and remote working, and the availability of easy-to-use webcasting tools in subscription pricing packages are driving the enterprise video webcasting market.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Global Enterprise Video Webcasting Solutions Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $242.6 million in 2014 and estimates this to reach $503.4 million by 2020. Over the course of the forecast period, enterprises will purchase video webcasting solutions both as a standalone offering and as part of a larger enterprise video platform.
By adopting EVW solutions, top executives can hold all-hands meetings and employee townhalls to communicate with globally dispersed workforces in a consistent, compelling and frequent manner. As maturing IT departments and chief information officers have become more comfortable with the risks of streaming video within the enterprise firewall, stronger uptake of EVW solutions is expected globally.
However, the slow nature of enterprise IT sales cycles, network inadequacies, and deployment complexities will slow down market development. The cultural reluctance to use video and cautious IT spending approach among some enterprises in certain regions will also dampen market prospects.
“As vendors from a variety of complementary markets have been releasing viable EVW solutions, market messaging and customer education initiatives to communicate the value proposition for products are paramount to success,” noted Vinny. “An emphasis on security, scalability and ease of use will be important, as these are key considerations in EVW purchase-related decisions.”
Recognizing this, the vendor community is focusing on improving the usability of EVW solutions and gearing their products towards business users instead of technical buyers. Vendors should also be developing a partner and reseller ecosystem to boost interest in EVW solutions globally.
