For the last several years, the industry has been trying to predict the next killer application that would be the catalyst to significantly drive the demand for streaming media. Proponents of digital media predicted rapid growth of entertainment on the Internet, including streaming delivery of Hollywood movies that would soon replace brick and mortar establishments like Blockbuster. While this dream has yet to be realized, streaming media is beginning to make a significant impact within the Enterprise as an enabler of corporate communications, training and eLearning. This Pub talk explores how streaming media is changing the way companies do business and creating new opportunities for the tech industry.
