New content platform for worldwide media distribution
Luxoft is developing a high function content web platform for a global digital media company, significantly enhancing its service to customers. The application will enable customers to easily search, tag and download big volumes of online media content using a range of devices, and distribute it quickly and reliably to multiple end users anywhere in the world. It is scalable to deal with high usage peaks without compromising the user experience, and flexible for self-branding. It can be integrated with other applications, so images can be edited on the platform without exporting to specialist tools.
The Luxoft team uses the new Microservices architecture concept to develop the platform as a series of applications that support the company’s requirements:
- More than 35,000,000 digital assets
- 100+ corporate customer end users
- 80,000+ individual accounts
- Smooth integration with other in-house company products
- Single sign-on solutions for corporate users
- Flexible branding capabilities
- Asset upload options which allow high speed uninterrupted transfers
- User-friendly interface for managing assets and further external distribution via many kinds of devices
The company will have a new, high function media content platform to position it competitively in its global industry. In increasingly diverse and competitive media markets, ability to provide better services is a key differentiator. An added-value media content platform will boost the company’s reputation not just amongst its direct customers, but also amongst the customer’s supplier network.
The company’s customers will have a stable application for uploading both purchased media content and their own content, and be able to distribute it quickly and easily across their own networks to end users anywhere in the world. The architecture supports big volumes of content, and high usage will not affect system performance. This is particularly important around the time of major events, such as film and music awards, when customers are uploading a wide range of media content from multiple devices.
