Tedial’s award-winning, nocode media integration platform brings broadcasters closer to composable technology and the cloud
Tedial, the leading independent media technology solutions specialist, has announced that its award-winning smartWork cloud-native, NoCode Media Integration Platform will be at NAB 2023 with smartPacks, a suite of Package Business Capabilities (PBCs). The enhancement is the M&E’s industry’s first PBC solution and was designed to bring broadcasters closer to the cloud and enable the composable enterprise, a modular approach that leverages existing digital capabilities to create new products and services. Composability increases agility in digital transformation, relieves pressure on the IT team and frees up time for innovation.
smartWork, launched at NAB 2022, has transformed business processes by empowering users to define integrations autonomously – without vendor participation – creating business processes in a flexible and agile manner. At this year’s NAB Tedial will present an enhanced version of smartWork in Booth W3959 that now features smartPacks, a suite of PBC modules capable of streamlining the processes of different business units including, but not limited to: news, content delivery, post-production, archive and even IMF.
PBCs are reusable software components that provide the key building blocks of a composable enterprise, used to create best-of-breed solutions in many verticals. In the M&E industry PBCs represent self-contained units that solve a specific problem: Localization, Content Delivery, Post-Production, etc. PBCs function without external dependencies, or the need for direct external access to data. For interaction with the rest of the enterprise’s systems and services, each PBC offers a data schema, an API, an event notification system and a set of services.
Applying modularity to M&E entities achieves the scale and pace required to enact ambitious business practices. The modularity of PBCs combined with smartWork’s no-code technology – that allows applications to be created without any prior knowledge of traditional programming – enhances composability resulting in the flexible design of applications and services enabling organizations to innovate and adapt quickly to changing business needs.
Tedial’s smartWork can be deployed on-premises, on any cloud or in a hybrid architecture for incredible flexibility. Cloud capabilities enable media services to be quickly built, deployed and evolved as business needs change by adding or adjusting business processes. Tedial recently successfully completed and achieved the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) for smartWork. All smartWork services are available as apps, which can be provided by AWS.
Said Julián Fernández-Campón, Tedial CTO, “After the successful launch of smartWork in 2022, we are delighted to be back at NAB with an enhanced and expanded version of the platform featuring smartPacks, a suite of PBC modules that reflect our roots in IT. This is the first and only solution capable of moving the world of PBCs into M&E with tools that tie directly to the business team’s needs by simplifying the creation and deployment of best-of-breed solutions.”
The launch of smartPacks along with Tedial’s recent AWS partnership, annual renewed ISO 9001 and 27001 certificates and its plans to offer additional cloud options reflect the company’s ongoing commitment to providing top-level quality solutions and support the latest and most advanced protocols and standards.
