When video production budgets get tighter and timelines get shorter, you need to cut inefficiencies and streamline workflows across the board. Working with technology that smoothly integrates into your current tech stack — including existing project management, asset management, publishing, and distribution platforms — can cut out manual tasks and automate repetitive workflows so your team can focus on high-impact creative work.
IT has a distinct set of considerations when it comes to video integrations:
The latest technology can connect your onset devices with cloud-based file sharing and storage platforms. As with any hardware integration, IT will weigh things like passwords, local access, firmware, connectivity, and encryption to make sure the new tech can work well with your existing setup.
New solutions should sync with your existing business and creative tech stack so you get the results you’re hoping to achieve. IT wants to be certain that the benefits of increased productivity, accurate data, faster decision-making, and cost-effectiveness all happen as smoothly and securely as possible.
Custom APIs make it easy for IT or even project teams to automate and streamline repeat tasks. When IT evaluates APIs, they’ll look at things like developer involvement, end-user boundaries, coding, and certificate validation to keep these triggers usable and useful.
Find out what support the vendor provides to help connect their technology with the tools you use today. If integrations aren’t smooth — or possible — you might have to consider an alternative approach that allows you to meet IT and production needs effectively.
