Microsoft's Enterprise Video Sharing Service Goes Mainstream

Way back in July of 2016, Microsoft announced a new service designed to make the sharing process of corporate video, easier. The platform, called Stream, is finally reaching general availability today, nearly a year after it was initially announced.

The corporate videos that we all love have existed for decades and are nothing new but what has historically been a challenge is sharing them internally in a way that is secure and offers a high level of collaboration. The Stream service offers a single destination for all of your video to make discoverability easier and to offer a unified solution for hosting the content as well.

The basic premise behind the tool is that in a controlled environment, employees can easily upload, share and discover internal videos through one site. The goal of the service is to take the ‘work’ out of sharing video internally and make it accessible to all employees while also maintaining the high levels of security that the enterprise demands.
