Bizzabo

Bizzabo is great for very small businesses who produce basic events. If a company has a couple events a year and wants a professional interface, it’s a great option. It’s less appropriate for companies with more complex events or who want full customization abilities.

Kaltura

Kaltura is an excellent tool IF you have a large library of content. It can be pretty pricey so if you are early in launching an online program you may be better off waiting a few years until you've amassed a large enough catalog to warrant the investment in such a tool.The tool is best purchased by a University or company-wide vs having a single department try to find the budget for it. The unlimited plan pays for itself in most cases if you go this route. Secondly, you must be willing to invest time and resources into on-going training for your faculty and staff, especially for those who wish to create their own media and use the quizzing features.

Pros

Bizzabo

  • Easy to set up and manage events.
  • Great user experience making it fun to use the app throughout the event.
  • Attendees drive more value out of the event especially thanks to being able to easily follow up with other attendees.

Kaltura

  • Very easy to use interface for uploading videos or capturing a screen recording. There are very few clicks required to get the media up and running. The video conversion process that happens on the back-end is fast and provides videos in device agnostic formats.
  • Integrates well with other systems, such as our Moodle LMS. This extends the capabilities of the LMS and also allows us to keep video/multimedia content organized in a central location (the KMC).
  • Kaltura can be connected to various processes within your organization. For example, we have a system in place that allows a video lecture in a classroom to be uploaded to Kaltura in a very easy manner.
  • User/role management is very important as some people on campus have more privileges to publish content than do others. We have Kaltura connected to our Single Sign-On solution for authentication and we can assign roles to specific people within the Kaltura software.

  • Automatic email triggers
  • The "community"

Since we have many terabytes of data currently stored with Kaltura and the system and it works great, it would be very difficult to move to another system.

The first line support agents seldom are able to diagnose or troubleshoot any problems that we have. These agents simply open support tickets in their system which are escalated to a foreign level 2 support agent which creates at least a day delay between reporting a problem and getting initial feedback. Any back-and-forth questions add at least another day delay.

Alternatives Considered

Bizzabo

Bizzabo is more user friendly than RegOnline and more professional and customizable than Eventbrite. Aventri is a more user friendly and complete system than Bizzabo. Bizzabo was selected over Aventri bevause we were on a time crunch, had already used it, and it was easy to duplicate a website we’d already created. Unfortunately utilizing it required a year contract, so we will reevaluate when it is up.

Kaltura

We considered a couple of options 2 years ago. One of those options has since been sold and dismantled. Kaltura was really the best product in this space. Now, Canvas is releasing its own video solution very soon and it has some nice workflow features. It remains to be seen if that solution will challenge Kaltura.

Return on Investment

Bizzabo

  • Event ROI is hard to measure for events. Feedback from the attendees is crucial for understanding the perceived value they got from the event, and the higher the value the higher the return in terms of renewal chances and churn reduction. For us the increase of attendees mentioning how valuable the event was for them from a networking and knowledge sharing perspective was a strong signal for positive ROI, and we attribute much of that to Bizzabo.

Kaltura

  • The ability to have such a robust solution for rich media content far outweighs the cost of service.
  • We have new projects which will push the limits and abilities of Kaltura in the future.
