As content consumption moves online and becomes more interactive, media companies face the challenge of distributing their works in new forms and on new screens. In this talk we will address some of the challenges faced in serving media content to large audiences, such as traffic spikes, speed of delivery, and reliability. We will review some architectural, monitoring, and process-related solutions to these challenges.
We will also discuss the increasing trend of integrating content, advertising, and analytics from third party providers. In an environment where SLA's are not always properly defined, and more often not properly monitored, managing third-party content is a challenge for anyone trying to provide a branded, seamless customer experience online. Join John Atkinson to learn his strategies for optimizing Total Beauty Media’s sites, and handling the performance of their 3rd party content and service providers.
