Consumerization, the growing tendency for new technology to emerge first in the consumer market and then spread into the enterprise sector, has and will continue to pave the way for innovation. What first started as “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device), has led to the harsh (yet exciting) realization by enterprise companies that software in today’s constantly connected world needs to be both easy to use AND easy to the eye.
At Ustream, we’ve also experienced consumerization, and I’m happy to say that — as a result of all the hard work from our Ustreamers across the globe — the dual notions of “easy to use” and “easy to the eye” can indeed co-exist in this live video streaming world we thrive in. We’ve got a ton of work to do in order to meet the growing needs of our customers, but we can certainly credit our early adopters (largely consumers) and plan to continue to improve the user experience.
