This offering is in response to tremendous demand for us to provide Accordent media management capabilities in an off-premise, cloud-based model,” said Mike Newman, vice president and general manager Video Content Management Solutions, Polycom. “We look forward to working with Microsoft to bring this powerful solution to market and to enable entirely new classes of users to experience the benefits of ‘at-your-fingertips’ video content.”
