Video Calling by Default

Identity management provider Okta regularly issues a "Businesses @ Work" report to share findings culled from its vast network of customers, applications, and custom integrations; the findings are based on the millions of associated authentications and verifications it handles each day across the globe. Its most recent report, issued this month, had a few interesting nuggets, including this one: Zoom, a video and Web conferencing service, has surpassed the seemingly unbeatable team collaboration app, Slack, as the fastest-growing app in the past six months.

The "win" seemingly came out of nowhere. In the previous Business @ Work report, issued in March 2016, Zoom hadn't even made it into the top 25 of fastest-growing apps, Okta reported. But with a growth rate of 67%, Zoom handily zipped past Slack, which grew at 44%, and second-place Umbrella, the Cisco cloud security platform that showed 47% growth in the last six months.

In this No Jitter On Air podcast episode, Andrew Davis, co-founder of Wainhouse Research and chair of the Video track at Enterprise Connect 2017, discusses the myriad cloud video service options and shares how to tell if your choice is enterprise-ready.
