Presentation: Solutions as a Service (SaaS) – Are They Right for Your Business?

The relentless pressure for operational efficiencies and intense changes to business model require companies to create, access, distribute, and monetize content at lower cost and in a more complex business environment. To do this effectively, their assets must be protected, immediately available, and repurposed easily and efficiently.

Solutions as a Service is a business model for technology providers in the media industry. This is not just about Avid products – it’s about providing solutions that are complex leading edge technologies that evolve quickly. Avid promises openness, extensibility, integration, flexibility and with this comes an intrinsic responsibility to qualify and document the integration of multiple vendor solutions, and the complex workflows they provide.

Avid is delivering complex solutions that include multiple vendor’s hardware and software. Hear how this new business model is shaping one of the media industry’s most recognized brands.
