SlideShare Ties Conferencing To Millions Of Slides

More Than A Million Shared Slides Get An Audio And Video Facelift; Consumerization Gets Another Injection; IT Gets Another Vendor To Track

February 16, 2011


Why Read This Brief

Why does the world need yet another webconferencing vendor? Because the existing solutions don't deliver all the value that your employees crave at a price you can afford. SlideShare has answered the call by launching Zipcast, a webconferencing extension to its SlideShare product. Millions of shared slides (with more than 10,000 presentations and documents uploaded every day) suddenly got an audio, video, and webcast facelift. And your employees, particularly in marketing and sales, got a new tool for working with customers and partners. But watch out: This vendor doesn't yet have the controls or security systems in place to support your information protection needs. Still, you need to reach out to your employees and find out why they use SlideShare and might use it a lot more now that it's SlideShare Zipcast.
