Alan formed AlanTechMedia out of a need he saw in firms that were expanding past traditional Video Conferencing, webcasting, audio-visual and telephony systems into digital media services. Digital media, includes video productions, content management, social media, on-line presentations, webinars and more. In all of these areas, the business owns the content, but often the internal technical teams (IT), manage and run media; without direct background in this area. With the incredible growth of the OTT (over-the-top) video industry, (I.E. Amazon, Hulu, Netflix) it has driven and made video common place and expected in all areas of communication. This creates a demand for video and media capability that firms need to adopt and leverage as part of their business and sales strategy. AlanTechMedia seeks to close this gap in providing business media solutions that provide both value and measurable benefits to the business through media solutions. AlanTechMedia has core expertise in technology, which is key in providing the necessary infrastructure for media to operate within firms. Additionally, AlanTechMedia provides media solutions and aligns them to what firms are looking for in order to stay competitive in a world that lives and breathes video in every form. We take a top-down and holistic view of media and video in order to fit it the best way possible, providing media capabilities and solutions that make the most sense for your business.
