MLB.com Hits Home Run with Cloud Collaboration
Have you ever thought about how that double play gets blasted to MLB headquarters in NYC, edited and buzzed back for instant replay on your TV and mobile device? MLB has worked for years to perfect the art of getting clips, highlights and real-time game footage up in a matter of minutes so fans can partake in a social TV experience and enjoy watching games on multiple devices. But how do they do it so quickly? Through the magic of cloud collaboration.
Staying on task could be frustrating using verbal communication and saving spreadsheets to network drives, but MLB.com tapped a cloud-based collaboration platform to automate processes and significantly reduce workload for communication and collaboration. The platform has allowed MLB.com to alleviate email inboxes and reduce bandwidth constraints, disparate files and broken conversations – which typically hinder the natural project collaboration and teamwork processes – and cut the publishing time from 20 minutes to just five minutes.
