In our first two reports in the Video Strategy series, we have detailed how online video has moved beyond the exclusive domain of media and entertainment companies. From travel to financial web sites, video is now ubiquitous across the internet.
While the number of companies in the space is certainly larger than six, we decided to focus on a set of vendors that serve a variety of clients, regardless of size or industry. For that reason, some vendors that primarily focus on high end media companies, such as Digitalsmiths, The Platform, or Move Networks were not included.
The space is rapidly evolving with several of the vendors announcing new funding or partnerships just in the past few months. I expect online video to be even more of a focus for Forrester and myself as we move into 2010. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, comments, and feedback on the Wave.
