The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution.
SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching:
1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment.
2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video.
SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs.

All native and ‘transitioning’ media companies are focusing heavily on content to save existing businesses, or building new business models, or both. Television broadcasters, wary of the growing cord-cutting, are spending large sums on premium content. In 2017, the top four media companies spent more than USD 34 billion on original and acquired non-sports programming. Pure-play OTT providers have, on the other hand, bet big on content to shore up on subscribers. Netflix alone spent more than USD 6 billion on content last year, while spend was USD 7 billion for Amazon and Hulu combined. Transitioning media companies, such as telecom and technology companies that are moving towards being a media company, are also allocating sizable funds for content in their quest to explore supplementary businesses, by boosting customer engagement on their platforms. Apple and Facebook have started creating their own original content, and spend is only going to expand further.
It is critical for media and entertainment companies that they get the most out of the content they’ve invested in. But for many monetization of their assets is being inhibited by slow and expensive tape-based archival solutions (LTO) as well as first generation cloud storage like Amazon. Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, in partnership with Marquis Medway, is bringing media and entertainment companies a transformative new solution. Wasabi’s next generation cloud storage brings companies the speed they need to leverage their content, but costs far less than the traditional cloud storage options. Plus unlike Amazon and others, Wasabi does not charge you to retrieve your content—potentially a huge savings depending on how much you access it. To help you quickly and efficiently get assets from tape to cloud Wasabi has combined with Marquis Medway’s advanced workflow automation platform.

As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.
