It’s a scenario that organizations certainly didn’t envisage three years ago - citywide lockdowns with restricted access to offices, limited ability to collaborate on files with colleagues, and virtually zero access to on-prem content.
The Covid-19 pandemic brought with it a reality check that has compelled companies to focus on content access resilience. They’re reassessing the risks posed by threats such as natural disasters and cyber attacks, even the effect of having content archives locked up on legacy platforms in siloes. For many organizations, the best response to these threats lies in hybrid workflows.
The hybrid model provides the perfect mix of unfettered remote access for content collaboration and deep archive, with the security of on-prem backup in case of an outage.
This workflow model appeals to broadcasters and sports rights-holders for reasons beyond contingency planning. It also offers cost efficiency and predictability, better internal regulation and data sovereignty.
Searchable content goes hand-in-hand with hybrid workflows, because if organizations don’t know what they have stored on-prem and in the cloud, it’s as good as lost. Using AI to automatically enrich media assets with timestamped metadata helps teams find exactly what they’re looking for among their content archives in a matter of minutes.
Since it belongs to organizations and not their vendors, metadata also needs to be portable across MAM, DAM or PAM, on-prem or cloud storage.
Object Matrix and Newsbridge provide media and sports rights-holders with an integrated solution for hybrid content storage management. From simplifying on-prem, hybrid and cloud-native archive setup and security measures via Object Matrix, to ingesting archived or live content into the Newsbridge platform to leverage AI-powered asset management.
The joint solution brings productivity gains, operational efficiencies and the resilient access to content that organizations are looking for.
