Qumu Releases 2013 EMEA SharePoint Survey

Qumu, the leading business video platform provider, today announced the results of its European SharePoint User Survey, showing employee training to be a key aspect of SharePoint use and an increase in video capability within the platform to be a top priority for business users.

The survey, aimed at revealing the expectations and current trends amongst Microsoft SharePoint users, found that improving training resources and providing live video meetings and training sessions, in addition to offering easy video upload and sharing, were key goals for 2013.

SharePoint is used extensively for employee training, with only 10% of survey respondents saying it was not used for this purpose. 88% of users saw improving business training resources and delivering training via live video within SharePoint as a strategic development opportunity.

Key findings from the research:

  • Making the SharePoint user experience more engaging and dynamic would improve corporate culture, according to 53% of respondents. Supporting mobile users (35%) through SharePoint was seen as having the same effect.
  • 60% of users utilize SharePoint capabilities to provide employee training.
  • The increase in the use of video content was recognized by users, with 45% suggesting the offering of easy video upload and sharing was a top priority.

The Qumu SharePoint technology integration module (TIM) enables users to create, manage, distribute and share video programs directly from the Microsoft SharePoint Portal interface.

With remote working an established practice for many employees*, and teams spread across multiple locations, using video technology for employee training has the potential to save costs for businesses, whilst making staff training and development more efficient.

“Throughout the recession, executives have had to learn how to harness technology to work more efficiently and cut costs,” said Steve Ferrigno, Vice President of Qumu EMEA. “Because of the increasing number of mobile workers, training is challenging yet remains crucial given that people are the most valuable asset in any company. Driven by the adoption of social collaboration tools and video applications for employees, today’s SharePoint managers cannot ignore the lure of video and the greater value it brings to an organisation by making it more dynamic and connected.”

Qumu will be demonstrating the SharePoint Technology Integration module and other video solutions at the European SharePoint Conference 2013 in Copenhagen – Booth #80.
