Kaltura Shows Off Their Video Extension for IBM Connections

View Comments
IBM Connect 2014 is now done and there's a lot for me to catch up with. My plan is that in the next few days I'll be sharing some of the code that I used during the keynote (Opening General Session). The code was all going against the IBM Connections APIs so you can start using it today against your current system.

Before going there, however, I wanted to share a bit about Kaltura's video extension for IBM Connections.  In their blog last week, Kaltura announced their new video extension and talked about why video is so important. Here are 5 reasons they offer:

  1. Video is engaging and simplifies complex ideas
  2. Video reduces cost by boosting training and 'multiplying' sales-force
  3. Videos shortens 'time to knowledge' and facilitates expertise creation and recognition
  4. Video authenticity brings people together
  5. The demand for consuming and creating knowledge on-the-go
Kaltura mentions that Forrester reported that over 27% of firms already implemented video for internal use and Gartner predicts that by 2016 organizations will stream more than 16 hours of video per employee per month.
