Analyst(s): Whit Andrews


Gartner's research indicates that consumption of video on mobile devices for work-related purposes is on the rise and that organizations must support and manage it, despite the many challenges this poses. We show video managers and enterprise architects how to prepare.

Table Of Contents
  • Key Challenges



  • Write support for mobile devices into any plan for enterprise video content management, even if your company or government doesn't currently encourage their use
  • Test video on various bandwidths and on key types of mobile device, and plan for disconnected viewing, if possible
  • Select vendors that support all the video formats you require. Inspect licensing and sale agreements to ensure they allow for multiple transcoded files. Avoid vendors that offer no upgrade path to apps that run on Apple's iOS or Google's Android.
