Akamai held an investor summit on March 30, 2017, delayed by about two weeks due to snow crippling the Boston area. From a media business standpoint, Akamai reiterated that the overall business has continued to be healthy, despite big tech giants, such as Netflix, Amazon, and Facebook, that are building out their own content distribution networks (CDNs) Akamai overbuilt somewhat on capacity in 2015, translating to gross margins that fell a couple points, causing a slight easing up on investment in 2016.
