S2 Company Update

By: John Honovich, Published on Mar 07, 2009

3 important announcements: (1) the video widget, (2) the small site offering (Pronto) and the (3) global offering (not on the website but will provide centralized management across the various S2 product offerings). The video widget is designed to make video integration into S2's client interface easier and more functional. It uses AJAX/Web 2.0 technologies to embed into their web client. They are including an 'explorer widget' that provides a sandbox for third party developers to write their own HTML/javascript code to run inside the S2 web client. On the PSIM side, S2 has definite plans to increase the knowledge management functionalities in their offerings. I see this pattern repeatedly among video and access vendors who continue to add in 'PSIM type' functionalities.
