Workflow Automation Program Review

  1. 1. Workflow Automa-on Project Program Review
  2. 2. Workflow Automa-on Project For the past 3 years, the Ericsson account team has submi:ed numerous proposals to HBO and we have engaged Ericsson in three major projects. 2 Cri-cal Design Review Workflow Automa-on Phase I Mezzanine File Transfer
  3. 3. Ericsson Professional Services Engagements (1 of 3) 3 CDR was our first professional services venture with Ericsson. Ericsson delivered sub- par end products to HBO and we negoHated a 25% cut in its final payment. 2009 Cri-cal Design Review CDR aimed to define HBO’s workflow auto- maHon requirements for encoding, water- marking, QC, and dis- tribuHng our non- linear content and design a soluHon based on the CMS WatchPoint product architecture. Project Results $21 $35 $19.00 0 20 40 60 80 Proposed Fee Jan-10 Payment Apr-10 Payment Reduced Fee Total Payment $ Thousands $75 $56 - Project Financials Expected End Products Delivery Results •  HCC workflow detailed requirements •  HCC Technical Architecture (Current) •  SoluHon for non-linear DR •  ImplementaHon roadmap •  Requirements were very high level (aber rework) •  Tech architecture lacked substance (aber rework) •  Proposed pricing was $892,851 •  No forward movement was approved HBO reduced the proposed fee by $19K (25% discount) because we were not saHsfied with the final deliverables.
  4. 4. Ericsson Professional Services Engagements (2 of 3) 4 Workflow AutomaHon aimed to automate HOD workflows. Its first manifestaHon was GO Mobile workflow. Due to project delays we went with Plan B (WorkflowTracker). 2010 Workflow Auto- ma-on Project WAP aimed to imple- ment the Azuki work- flow in support of the GO Mobile iniHaHve. However, due to schedule delays and unacceptable deli- verables, MPO had to revert to our Plan B soluHon, i.e., Work- flowTracker. Project Results $2.94 $0.28 $0.32 0 1 2 3 4 Proposed Fee HW/SW Professional Services Reduced Fee Total Payment $ Millions $3.53 $3.21 Project Financials Expected End Products Delivery Results •  HSE Templates and Adaptors •  HCC Templates and Adaptors (GO Mobile) •  Template and Adaptor Plug-ins •  Requirements/Design docs •  Completed but not validated/accepted by HBO •  Completed but not validated/accepted by HBO •  Completed but not validated/accepted by HBO •  Incomplete HBO reduced the professional services fee by $316K (53%) because we were not able to validate their acceptance nor were they delivered on Hme. -
  5. 5. Ericsson Professional Services Engagements (3 of 3) 5 Phase I Mezzanine File Transfer enables the transfer of AS02/J2K mezzanine assets between our Hierarchical Storage Management systems. 2011 Mezzanine File Transfer Phase I aims to deliver the ability to transfer complete AS02/J2K bundled assets between the high speed, highly- concurrent USP-V storage and the high- capacity Central Repository storage at HSE. This workflow will track all assets placed in the Central Repository and main- tain the metadata associated with them. Project Results $118 $92 $200 $117 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 Proposed Fee PM ArHfact (Paid) Ingest Template/ Metadata Plugin (Paid) Purge/Archive Purge/ Transfer and MXF Adapter Total Payment $ Thousands $527 $527 Project Financials Expected End Products Delivery Results •  Project Management arHfact •  Ingest Template and Metadata Plug-in •  Purge/Archive Purge/Transfer templates •  MXF Wrapper/Un-wrapper Adapter •  Completed and accepted by HBO •  Completed and accepted by HBO •  Delivered 12 weeks late (currently in UAT) •  AwaiHng final delivery (target 12+ weeks late) To date, PM arHfact, Ingest template, and Metadata plug-in were delivered to and accepted by HBO. We are awaiHng the final delivery of Purge, Archive Purge, and Transfer templates and MXF Adapter.
  6. 6. Outstanding Financial Obliga-ons Contractually, we have the following financial obligaHons to Ericsson. These were included in the current budgets. 6 •  Phase I Statement of Work – 2011 Budget –  Purge/Archive Purge/Transfer Templates (Delivered and currently being tested) –  MXF Adapter $317,025 $199,910 $117,115 •  CMS WatchPoint Maintenance1 per annum – 2012 Budget $540,000 •  Onsite Support Staff2 (per annum) – 2012 Budget –  MediaPath –  CMS WatchPoint $253,800 Total $1,110,825 Notes: 1. Maintenance fee applies to years 2, 3, and 4 of the contract 2. Support fees is based on a 4 year commitment
  7. 7. Show-stopper Issue Ericsson has a contractual issue with Metaglue, which is delivering the MXF/ASO2 SDK for the MXF Adapter. 7 •  The issue is that Metaglue is offering to indemnify Ericsson in the U.S. only, whereas Ericsson is demanding global coverage •  Ericsson needs this SDK in order to deliver on the wrapping/un-wrapping capability required by the MXF adapter –  Metaglue is actually the “Plan B” soluHon; the original SDK vendor was MOG •  Ericsson has asked HBO to get involved with its Metaglue contract negoHaHons by “weighing” in on the need for global indemnificaHon Current Issue Recommenda-ons •  Accept Purge/Archive Purge/Transfer Templates (aber User Acceptance TesHng) •  Do not accept the MXF Adapter – there’s no firm delivery date because the Ericsson/ Metaglue contract is subject to approval by Ericsson headquarter in Sweden •  Stop Phase II project with Ericsson •  Bring CMS WatchPoint development in- house (per Ma:’s recommendaHon on the three possible HCC use cases) •  Re-negoHate our maintenance agreement and on-site support contract in light of the smaller CMS producHon footprint
