Transforming SharePoint with Video

Transforming SharePoint with Video

A recent research note from Gartner, Inc. titled “Should Microsoft Kill SharePoint?” touched on some of the obstacles organizations face with driving adoption of Microsoft’s popular collaboration software. The paper recommended freezing new on-premises SharePoint projects and to start them online instead. This comes on the heels of the world’s top IT analyst firm’s advice to not upgrade from SharePoint 2010 to 2013.

With the need to transform SharePoint from a tool that employees are required to use to one they want to use, companies should consider expanding the software's basic media functionality by integrating on-demand video and live rich media webcasting. In this session MediaPlatform would like to cover:

  • How to take your SharePoint instance from a platform many employees only use for document sharing and turn it into a robust media solution
  • Best practices for integrating SharePoint with an enterprise YouTube
  • Common use cases for video inside SharePoint
