Cisco launches Infinite Video Platform Labs
January 5, 2017
Cisco is launching the Infinite Video Platform (IVP) Labs, enabling all Infinite Video customers worldwide to define together the future of the consumer video experience.
IVP Labs allows participating customers to test new features with users before making them generally available. Customers and end users can provide crucial feedback to make these features, and the IVP roadmap, more relevant. IVP Labs leverages IVP’s agile development approach, built-in A-B testing capabilities, and a modular microservice–based architecture that enables fast, incremental delivery of value to its customers.
“One of the benefits of moving to IVP is the ability to innovate faster at lower cost,” said Yitschak Elyakim, CTO, YES. “Gone are the days of costly professional services engagements to make minor changes with high downtimes. Being able to provide immediate feedback, and adapt the functionality accordingly, is a critical success factor in the new video world.”
“We are releasing new features for IVP every two weeks,” said Rajeev Raman, senior director of Product and Strategy, Service Provider Video Software, Cisco. “IVP Labs demonstrates our commitment to a common code that continuously expands capabilities while improving quality. Our aim is simple: to create a community in which our customers – and their customers – can directly contribute to shape the IVP roadmap and help define the future of video.”
