Accenture and Avanade are committed to delivering cloud computing solutions on the Microsoft Windows Azure Services Platform that improve performance and reduce costs for our clients.
Azure provides a range of functionality to build applications that span the consumer Web to enterprise scenarios. With Azure, applications can be developed and hosted either at the client site or in the cloud.
Avanade, our business technology company dedicated to providing solutions using Microsoft technologies, offers a suite of services for the Windows Azure platform.
Accenture’s commitment and ability to deliver is evidenced by its development of solutions built on the Azure platform, most notably its work with Origin Digital.
Origin Digital is a global service provider of online video, and an Accenture subsidiary that is increasingly incorporated into client offerings in both media and other large enterprise markets. Origin Digital’s suite of services enables the capture, conversion and control of digital media, helping some of the world’s largest companies to manage the delivery of their video content to any device, in any format, anywhere.
Origin Digital has a proprietary content-management system and service platform—Odaptor—that processes multimedia content and metadata to allow for multichannel distribution across geographies.
To meet increasing client demand, Origin Digital collaborated with Accenture and Avanade to improve the response time for processing client jobs, decreasing hardware costs, increasing flexibility and dynamically scaling encoding capacity, one of its most processing-intensive services.
After evaluating the current system to determine which components could be migrated to the Azure cloud, the team designed the migration of the Odaptor. At the same time, job scheduling and resource controller capabilities were also moved into the cloud.
The Origin Digital Odaptor migration is a tangible example of how businesses can innovate and economize with the help of Accenture and Avanade. To help clients such as Origin Digital, Accenture and Avanade have built a factory capability of professionals who are deeply skilled on the Azure platform. These professionals can quickly deliver Azure Services to help clients improve performance and reduce costs.
Our delivery capability comprises both on-shore architects and offshore developers who use industrialized delivery processes and tools to support both migrating to, and building in, the Microsoft Azure cloud. Our sourcing capability also can provide long-term support of these applications once they have been migrated into the Azure cloud. These elastic capabilities accelerate development and reduce application support costs.
