Media Workflow
& Services Integration

Self-sufficient & Agile Media Operations

Harmonising Business & Technology

smartWork is the outcome of Tedial’s vision to better align business and technology. We understand that for a business to be truly agile, the platforms it uses and the services it consumes must easy to access, adapt and scale. Any need to quickly effect change must be either automated or in the control of the users.

Flexibility is paramount!  smartWork delivers this based on four key design principles….

Cloud Native, Modular Applications and Services

Widest range of support to run applications and services in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Inherent modularity and scalability through microservices based software development

NoCode Workflow Design

Design of automated business workflows and processes using graphical tools – and without writing a single line of code!

Flexible Access to Services

Instant ability to create, manage, store, enrich, process, transform, publish, distribute and archive your content with ready access to a library of industry leading content services. Fast and easy switching between services due to the implementation of a common interface and datamodel

Business Composability

Efficient and fast re-use, re-purpose or adaption of existing applications. Fast-track to assemble new services by introduction of pre-defined media use-case packages - Tedial smartPackages
