Aragon Research Includes Qumu in the Globe for Video Conferencing for Third Straight Year
Qumu Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based enterprise video technology, today announced it has been positioned by Aragon Research, Inc. in the Contender section of the 2021 Aragon Research Globe for Video Conferencing for the third consecutive year.1 The Aragon Research Globe examines 21 web and video conferencing vendors, and places each into one of four segments – Leader, Contender, Innovator or Specialist. Additional companies included in this year’s Research Globe include Cisco, Google, Microsoft and Zoom.
Aragon Research includes Qumu in its Aragon Research Globe for Video Conferencing for the third consecutive year, demonstrating Qumu’s ability to deliver scalable video options for today’s highly distributed, hybrid work environments.
Qumu’s inclusion in Aragon’s Research Globe demonstrates the company’s ongoing ability to deliver reliable, secure and fast enterprise video at scale as businesses continue to expand the size of live virtual events, and remote and hybrid employee engagement using live and asynchronous video. As the global workplace moves further into a work from wherever, whenever reality, Qumu remains on the leading edge of helping companies stay more engaged with employees, partners and customers while keeping all content secure.
“We feel that Qumu’s inclusion in the Globe for Video Conferencing validates our approach to providing scalable video options for today’s highly distributed, hybrid work environments,” said TJ Kennedy, president and CEO at Qumu. “Qumu empowers hyper-distributed businesses to move faster, no matter the size of the event or audience. We extend the reach of video conferencing to the enterprise by live streaming conference room discussions to large audiences when needed, and providing conference recordings on-demand easily, securely and at scale for the right audiences. Having that versatility is paramount to staying connected no matter where you are, or how and when you consume video.”
As part of the 2021 Aragon Research Globe for Video Conferencing, Aragon analysts independently evaluated 21 web and video conferencing firms against a wide variety of criteria including product, global reach, product strategy, revenue, R&D and others. Customer references were also provided by each vendor.
“The demand for quality video conferencing software won’t slow down, even with the return to the office,” said Jim Lundy, CEO and lead analyst for Aragon Research. “If vendors are going to be successful in the post-pandemic market, they need to offer intelligent video platforms such as Qumu that can operate in a hybrid work environment.”
