Join us on September 26 for Valley View, our exciting live video show. In addition to an exclusive chat with NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson, and an in-studio interview with CitiGroup CTO Yobie Benjamin, we'll feature our new Elevator Pitch session, a rapid-fire deluge of information about new technology approaches.

One company's elevator pitch we'll be highlighting: Kontiki.

Whether video's dominance on the Internet holds true also on corporate networks is debatable, but it is certainly becoming a more common way to communicate with and train employees, and Kontiki has been quietly garnering the enterprise video distribution business of companies like GM, Nestle, Coca Cola and Wells Fargo, to name a few. At Nestle, it manages some 2,000 videos on the company's intranet. In our Valley View Elevator Pitch session, you'll hear more details from CEO Dan Vetras -- namely, how its secret sauce is compelling IT shops to consider an approach that Vetras claims obviates the need for expensive WAN acceleration hardware.

Other Elevator Pitches featured: Appthority (Mobile Security), Crowdstrike (Enterprise Security), Cliqr (Cloud Management), Fusion-io (flash memory for the data center).
