New Media Expo 2008 Interview: Paulo Tosolini (Microsoft)

Paulo has a vision. Paulo wants to make everybody within Microsoft to start podcasting. For that, he thought, I need a platform. And so it started. Last year Academy Mobile was launched to the sales force and this year the platform, named the creative title: Podcast Kit for Sharepoint can be downloaded for free as an add-on to Sharepoint. “You can think of it as YouTube within your company”, Paulo said, “where anybody can upload content. It could be training, best practices. Essentially it’s giving a voice to the employees”.

That the platform is a success is quite clear: “After one year we had 2,500 podcasts in the system, whereas we had anticipated on 750”, he said.

See an enthousiastic Paulo in our interview, when we met him again at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas.
