Thanks for visiting MyOrbit.tv – we are in the last leg of our security enhancements and plan to be live again soon. Last week, we got one of the best testaments so far of the path we are taking for MyOrbit.tv
Here’s a brief from the editor of DailyTech Rag newsletter (it’s got about 50k subscribers worldwide)
When you think of YouTube in the enterprise, you probably think of that common quandary many IT departments face: to block or not to block? However, if Google has its way, the decision organizations may soon have to weigh is whether or not to deploy YouTube. BusinessWeek reports Google “is preparing a corporate version of YouTube to create videos for training and employee communications.” Say what? Strange as that might sound, an internal enterprise version of YouTube makes a lot of sense. YouTube makes uploading videos to a web server so simple just about anyone can do it and the playback interface is something practically all Internet users are familiar with. Sure, your organization may not use online video at the moment, but the potential for internally distributing training videos, corporate communications and PR is too great to ignore. While there is currently no timeline for the delivery of the enterprise version of YouTube, it is expected to arrive bundled-in with the next revision of Google Apps.

This is my analysis of the planned Google offering. It is a software tool, whereas we offer a business service. My simple analogy is this: Google offering is like a projector with which you can make presentations, and ours is like a projector plus different presenters plus diverse professional audience, so it’s an online business conference. No doubt, Google Youtube Enterprise version will compete on a small front, for some cases of intra-company knowledge sharing, ie., where they only need the projector!
What does it mean for MyOrbit? It means our roadmap for applying new media to business is the way to go. And it also means that we need to increase our efforts to build the community of professionals and businesses using MyOrbit.tv. Stay Tuned!
