CEO: Tom Leighton
A long-time mover-and-shaker in the online video content business, the analyst group sees Akamai as a good example of a company that has driven it success through cloud-based services. But, the content services business can be tricky, especially as competitive upstarts have arrived on the scene with strategies based on cost cutting and margin reduction. Akamai has responded with a strategy that focuses on product innovation and an emphasis on identifying and satisfying unaddressed portions of the market. The company also promotes its environmental consciousness and has worked to reduce the power consumption of its data centers.
