We’re a lot more than I had known.
One of my recent “projects” is co-founding a startup called testRTC which offers testing and monitoring services for WebRTC based services. The “real” public announcement made about this service was here in these last couple of days and through a webinar we did along with SmartBear on the impact of WebRTC on testing.
I actively monitor and maintain the ecosysem of WebRTC vendors. I make it a point to know as many vendors as possible through various means. I thought I had this space pretty much covered.
What surprised me was the barrage of requests for information and demos by vendors with real services out there that came into our testRTC contact page that I just wasn’t aware of. About 50% of the requests from vendors came from someone I didn’t know existed.
My current dataset size is now reaching 700 vendors and projects. There might be twice that much out there.
Why is this important?
- A lot of the vendors out there are rather silent about what they are doing. This isn’t about the technology – it is about solving a problem for a specific customer
- There are enough vendors today to require a solid, dedicated testing tool focused on WebRTC. I am more confident about this decision we made with testRTC
- If you are building something, be sure to let me know about it
