Technology provider ON24 announced an update last week that migrates the company's webcasting, virtual environment and virtual event tools to a single platform. Platform 10 Virtual Events and Environments is an open-architecture development tool, which now contains more than 50 application "widgets" that can be used for webcasts, virtual events or virtual training sites. The widgets, designed both by ON24 and third-party developers, include tools that deliver social networking, collaboration, enterprise communication and training features to the platform. "With Platform 10, viewers can more easily consume content, network with their peers and share their virtual experience with others," said Tom Masotto, vice president of product management at ON24.
