But more importantly for the business sector, it has democratized video production: now it’s as common for enterprises to make videos as it is for film studios to make movies. However, this is not just the video age, it’s also the era of personalization. But it takes brands, on average, 12 days to get a single piece of content to market.

The acronym SaaS stands for Software as a Service, which means subscribing to a cloud-based solution. It facilitates teams to work and collaborate anywhere in the world where they have an internet connection.
