Wednesday 6 May 2015, Sydney, Australia. Viocorp CEO Greg Miner today announced
collaboration with Riverbed, the leader in application performance infrastructure. Through the
alliance, the companies will offer Viocorp’s cloud based SaaS, Viostream, and Riverbed®
SteelHeadTM to enable large scale live and on-demand video on enterprise networks.
The announcement is timely given Australia’s recent low ranking in digital competitiveness. It has
been estimated that a more effective uptake of digital technologies including video, will generate
an additional AUD $34.5 billion of national economic output over the next five years.
Mr Miner says that Viocorp and Riverbed will address the technical challenges currently
experienced when utilising online video for enterprise communications.
Hear from Reuben Bennett, Alliance Director AU/NZ and Dinesh Kumar, Strategic Partner Manager, what this alliance means for you in the business unit and your IT division
“This alliance marks a new era of on-demand video and live streaming by optimizing the
transmission of high quality video over the WAN and by reducing video’s consumption of network
resources, delivering a higher return on existing IT infrastructure.
“Together, Viostream and Riverbed create a high impact and quality visual experience by
increasing reliable viewing and gives CIOs unparalleled visibility and control of IT infrastructure
and resources” he said.
“Through the Riverbed-Ready program, Riverbed and Viocorp will provide customers an
integrated solution to deliver video content more effectively without negatively impacting network
performance or bandwidth availability,” said Katie Colbert, Vice President, Global Technology
Alliances at Riverbed. “This solution will accelerate the performance of on-premises, cloud, and
SaaS applications across the hybrid enterprise.”
This new alliance is the latest of a number of strategic initiatives that Viocorp are undertaking as the
company continues to drive the advancement of video solutions as a key enterprise-wide
communications strategy within Australian organisations.
“Video consumption is on the rise with 75% of Australian senior executives now watching work-
related videos each week. Video is unquestionably an important communications tool to reach
more people and increase employee and customer engagement. Companies that don’t have
adequate video capabilities will find themselves falling behind their competitors very quickly.
CIOs must have video high on the agenda in 2015” warns Mr Miner.
