Kaltura chairman and CEO Ron Yekutiel highlights the importance of rich media in business' content strategy.
Video is said to soon consume up to 90% of the world's cloud resources. It is therefore imperative for any online service provider to integrate and deploy functionality that would enable them to capture that huge potential.
Business Potential for Third-Party App & Content Developers
Kaltura is also starting an application exchange, similar to how Brightcove plans to market its App Cloud partners with focus on providing a multi-platform delivery of apps and content.
