A path filled with unexpected obstacles and intricate puzzles, ready to challenge even the most experienced teams.
Therefore the teams in Bitmovin and Vimond have set out to make these seemingly cumbersome processes more accessible, more manageable, and ultimately, more efficient.
So, if you are looking to change systems - this article is for you.
Often seen challenges with changing system
When migrating a media library and OTT Platform over to a new supplier, there are often years of content, a range of formats, a mess of asset relations, linked metadata, images of different shapes and sizes. Often stored in different places in legacy or proprietary systems. Some of this material can be difficult to access, or is hidden from system users as less scrupulous suppliers have used such techniques to become ´more sticky´, and have created the kind of Vendor Lock-In that we work hard to avoid and help our customers break free from.
Do these challenges sound familiar?
- Multiple verticals: Some video hosting platforms cater to multiple verticals, which may lead to a lack of specialization and tailored solutions for each industry. This approach could leave customers struggling to find the ideal fit for their unique requirements. Furthermore, these platforms may suffer from a bad UI interface, causing frustration and hindering the user experience for both content creators and consumers.
- Limited curation capabilities: When it comes to content curation, current customers may face limitations, hindering their ability to organize and showcase their video content effectively. The lack of robust curation capabilities may result in a less personalized and engaging viewing experience for their audience
- Limited in regional support: In terms of support resources, customers might find themselves grappling with a lack of regional support, making it challenging to receive timely assistance or localized services.
These implicit challenges present significant obstacles for current users of certain video hosting platforms, impacting their overall workflow efficiency, customization options, user experience, and support accessibility.
