With Covid-19 threatening the continuation of existing business models and accelerating the need for both business and digital transformation, broadcasters are increasingly looking to outsource discrete elements of the broadcast workflow.

With the aim of managing complexity and controlling risk while reducing costs, the increasing flexibility and agility that outsourcing represents makes a compelling argument, but what factors contribute to its success? This Red Bee Media panel will examine the efficiencies that can be realized with this process, the issues that need to be considered, and provide high-level strategic insight into the benefits that can result.

The industry shift to hybrid cloud technology, and software only solutions which sit on standard IT, has been an industry focus for equipment and managed services providers for the past decade. This session will look in detail at exactly where Red Bee Media is in that transformation. It will show how Red Bee has innovated its technology and operating models to meet customer demands for increased flexibility and agility, and provide valuable insight into how organisations can avoid the pitfalls in the process and start to implement cloud and software-based and interconnected infrastructures across their own networks.
