Blue Jeans Network maintains a cloud-based video collaboration service that enables video conferencing using practically any device. Headquartered in Mountain View, CA, and founded in 2009, the firm has received a total funding of $98.5 million from Norwest Venture Partners, Accel Partners, New Enterprise Associates and Battery Ventures.

One of the most obtrusive trends noticed in the industry is the distributed workforce. In the early days, concentrated workforce used to be a norm especially in the 90's and 2000s. In the new era, the distributed workforce is able to function distinctly, at high level of productivity, when scattered throughout the globe.

Most of the people in the distributed workforce are Millennial, which means that working remotely is inherent to them. The consequence of this gives rise to video-based communication that enables collaboration in the end.

The Future of Cloud Networking

Many traditional companies in the video conferencing space are in a "cloud conundrum." Such companies see that the cloud is the future for video conferencing, but they are still stuck with a hardware and contract-based business model. This battle will continue to play out throughout the next few years.
