About Sherpa Digital Media, Inc.
Sherpa sits at the crossroads of Digital Media for business. Business video -- to both employees and the outside world -- is fast-becoming the go-to tool for communications. Yet as alluring as it is for so many facets of business, video is far more complex and risky than most new innovations the enterprise has encountered in years. Video's reach spans many different departments across a company -- from Marketing and HR, to IT and Network, and to Risk and Legal. The mere mention of video can make many a folk both smile at its potential and shudder at its propensity for failure. (How many webinars, webcasts, corporate townhalls have your witnessed blow up in spectacular fashion?) What's more, the problem cannot be solved by a single product, and at a single point in time. Rather, digital media must be treated as a program that will morph over time as technologies and expectations built outside the walls of a company (i.e. consumer)...make their way inside.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.
