The world’s largest organizations leverage the Qumu platform for a variety of use cases, including self-service webcasting, internal collaboration, employee training, onboarding, corporate communications, regulatory compliance, and customer engagement. Qumu’s customer base spans the Global 2000 in six key verticals including Financial Services, Manufacturing, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Professional Services, Telecom and Technology, and Government.

Qumu is consistently named a leader in the Enterprise Video Platform space by analyst fi rms like Gartner, Forrester, Frost & Sullivan, Aragon Research, and Wainhouse Research, and is unique in its ability to provide end-to-end internal and external video communications solutions for global enterprises.

Qumu was born in 2002, when Yahoo purchased the dot com–era search engine company Inktomi. As part of that transaction, Yahoo received a technology for managing and publishing video assets called Media Publisher, which Inktomi had invested signifi cant dollars into developing.

Two entrepreneurs made an offer for the Media Publisher product, and spent the next six years developing it into a fully fl edged enterprise video platform—which they rebranded as Qumu in 2008. Between 2008 and today, the Qumu technology has developed into the leading enterprise video platform in the world.

Although it is an international organization, Qumu is proud to call Minneapolis its home—and maintains a global headquarters in the Warehouse District on First Avenue, exactly two floors above the historic Loon Café. Qumu is thoroughly committed to fostering advancement and growth in the Twin Cities’ tech community and continually strives to be one of Minnesota’s most innovative technology firms.

“With the growing demand for video in the enterprise, business leaders are looking for solutions that support a variety of use cases, such as easy-to-use video streaming frameworks for live webcasting. Providers like Qumu offer a full suite of capabilities that allow enterprises to effectively manage video across their organization—a vital component of customer and employee engagement.”
