Media Workflow
& Services Integration

Self-sufficient & Agile Media Operations

Harmonising Business & Technology -- !!!PLATFORM!!!

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

Composable Media Application & Service Development

Tedial outline why Composability makes sense when building efficient media supply chains

The Gateway to Content Services

Common Workspace

All applications/services presented via a unified user interface (UI)

Common Interface

Simplifies workflow design as all applications/services present a common interface/API

Common Datamodel

Simplifies workflow design as all applications/services present a common datamodel

Frequent Questions and Answers

“NoCode” is a type of software development that allows anyone to create digital applications without writing a single line of code. It involves using tools with an intuitive, drag-&-drop interface to create a unique solution to a problem. smartWork is termed as a NoCode Media Integration Platform because workflows can be designed and implemented without any software coding.

Gartner state; “ Composable business means creating an organisation made from interchangeable building blocks”
From a technology perspective, Tedial supports this approach by focusing on modularity (through micro-services/micro-applications) to promote the re-use, re-purpose and adaption – of existing applications and services

A packaged business capability describes a well-defined single (or series) of use-cases common to a specific media operation – such as content migration, delivery or localisation. Tedial make these available in smartWork, in the form of add-on “smartPacks”
Import of a smartPack will load all the use-case foundations including workflows, interfaces and dashboards. It will also flag if any dependencies are missing (i.e., integrated services). Once any missing items are remedied then the workflows can be validated & executed.

With smartWork hybrid cloud support you can choose to adapt your operations incrementally – with continued use or repurpose of existing assets & infrastructure. Hybrid cloud also give much more flexibility in where you place your operations and resources – taking into account considerations of the specific workflow, costs & business continuity.

smartWork has multi-cloud support. It has already been deployed and tested in multiple clouds, including AWS, Google & Microsoft. 

smartWork is integrated with many third-party services in addition to our own MAM system (Evolution).  Other options existing for common content processing/handling activities which include transcoding, auto QC, file-transfers, scheduling, NRCS, storage, archive & AI tools. More services are been added to bring more choice and capabilities to platform users.

smartWork is a media workflow & services integration platform. Certain workflows orchestrated by smartWork may require the capability that a MAM system offers. Therefore, for the widest possible support – smartWork does include integration and licensing of its award winning Evolution MAM system

How can I ensure business continuity as we transition from our current systems to smartWork?

With smartWork as your new media integration platform, you can plan to minimise and even avoid disruption to your operations. This is because existing systems and services (on-premise or cloud) can be easily “connected” or newly integrated into smartWork. 

In addition, transfer of content and data can be supported by application of the content migration smartPackage. This could happen during the initial transition to smartWork or later – for example, when introducing a new media management service
