We use Brightcove at OPUBCO. I’m a big fan of Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Brightcove. In my opinion, many of his business strategies have been brilliant.
Brightcove has grown from just another video platform to a leading solution for many very large media companies. They have consistently rolled out upgrades.
We don’t fully utilize their APIs, I’m hoping we can change that this year. This means more live video and better streaming solutions across mobile devices. And it means distribution across other platforms such as Livestream and YouTube.
I also admire Allaire’s thoughts on leadership. I believe there is a needed creative area between black and white. But some people simply need everything structured.
Jeremy Allaire: “Those even became tenets for me in terms of my management style — a kind of laissez-faire approach to allowing people to self-direct and peer-collaborate to figure things out and get things done here. That attracts a certain kind of person. There are other people who can’t thrive in that — they need things spelled out, they need their five tasks.”
