Years ago, Accenture moved from an in-house built video solution that stored and managed the company’s videos to a vendor solution that provides enterprise capability and operates as software-as-a-service (SaaS) via the cloud. The vendor’s video platform offered video-creation tools, enterprise-grade scalability and competitive pricing. Within Accenture, we named this new platform the Media Exchange.
We gained services that enable video to stream across any device as an out-of-the-box feature. The vendor solution also enables integration with authentication/corporate sign-on, establishing the access controls and reporting that enterprises must have, and enables integration with common enterprise software products. Software versions update automatically.
To address the need for mobility, the vendor developed and released a Media Exchange mobile app that gives employees the ability to stream videos or download media for later, offline viewing.
