YouTube Exclusively for Business

Amid breaking news on Google Chrome, as we discussed here, you may have missed that the undoubtedly innovative company also launched Google Video for business. This new application allows businesses to have a YouTube like app, exclusively for their use with additional capabilities to limit access. As this article summarizes:

“Google Video for businesses is a new enterprise application that enables messaging and collaboration among employees who require more discretion in sharing video content. Google Video for businesses leverages the cloud computing infrastructure Google employs for YouTube, one of the company's core Web services.”

Also as Matthew Glotzbach, product management director for Google Enterprise, stated:

"Think of it as private-label YouTube for your domain, with security in place so you can control who has access to what video"

With the tremendous influx in messaging, and video as well as file sharing, this new app from Google will help enterprises to feel more secure while still participating in this trend. What are your thoughts on this new application? Are there benefits to be found in this for your organization?
