I’m excited to announce that the next chapter in Kontiki is here! Effective March 24th, Kontiki is changing its name to Kollective Technology. We made this change to create a new brand that could stand for something broader than the current Kontiki brand which is viewed as an enterprise video platform. This change allows us to focus on two distinct areas our customers look to us for: Enterprise video apps and powerful network solutions. While most of our customers need both these solutions, the stakeholders are usually separated into Corp Com and IT, two groups with very different needs.
We really wanted the Kontiki brand to be able to focus specifically on the video use cases and speak to Corp Comm without being complicated with technical IT-oriented use cases. Within Kontiki we’ll focus on enterprise video apps that are consumer inspired and enterprise proven. With Kollective, we’ll focus on IT with powerful software defined network technology, which ultimately can power new solutions for IT that may not be video related. We’ll be announcing Kollective for SCCM and Kollective Network Readiness Test as our first two non video specific products. Customers have been asking us to build these apps for a long time, but the current brand wouldn’t support that.
