TCS launches Editorial Collaboration Platform for media cos

Mumbai: Global IT services company Tata Consultancy Services has launched Editorial Collaboration Platform (ECP), an online system for editorial planning of web-based publishing, and radio and television broadcasting.

The ECP solution was unveiled at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas.

According to the company, the system efficiently unifies data to remove information silos and integrates Microsoft Outlook and other databases to simplify editors’ daily lives.

"The rise of the multi-screen media presents an array of new opportunities for both broadcasters and publishers as they evolve into digital enterprises. TCS Editorial Collaboration Platform solution allows media companies to transition from ‘channel-centric’ media production to trans-media story-telling and enables the creation of editorial communities that can virtually collaborate across multiple locations," said TCS VP and head of media and information services Kamal Bhadada.

The ECP solution was developed by TCS’s digital media group — a vast resource of skilled media professionals with extensive domain experience to provide real-life solutions. The TCS solution works with Microsoft SharePoint, SharePoint Online and windows Azure platforms.

Bhadada added, “The TCS strategy of leveraging its digital media expertise to develop solutions using commonly used technology platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint, allows media customers to deploy solutions that are highly tailored to the changing digital media workflows, while providing media companies with benefits of lower cost and state-of-the-art IT platforms. Thus, in this rapidly evolving marketplace, media operations can maximise their collaborative potential by focusing on product innovation rather than worrying about continuous investment into a cluster of custom-made production tools.”

Microsoft MD worldwide media and cable industry Taras Bugir said, “We’re excited about this new offering from TCS to ease media organisations’ transition to truly digital media companies. This is a great example of how Microsoft helps companies deliver new experiences and services to capitalise on changing market demand."
