Digital Rights Management - protection or hindrance?

Part 1 of 2

By Mary Yurkovic | November 09, 2012

With improvements in streaming media and compression technology, digital music, images, videos, books and games can be distributed instantaneously across the Internet to end-users. Many digital service providers and individual creators of content are monetizing their content by having it in digital formats (of course) and selling it online. However, without protection and management of digital rights, digital content can be easily copied, altered, and distributed to a large number of recipients, which could cause a huge revenue loss to media companies and individuals alike. For example, Sony (the world's second-largest consumer electronics maker) has blamed digital piracy for eroding profit at its music business, which in 2011 posted a loss of approximately 10.3 billion yen ($160 million).

The Concept of Trust in Your Workflow

The Concept of Trust in Your Workflow

By Nick Sincaglia | August 20, 2012

I was talking with a client recently about some of the challenges they were experiencing with a new workflow they had implemented. It was a bit of a departure from their existing workflows, in that it relied much more heavily on some external data providers. Up until this point, their existing workflows were primarily driven by data that was originating from internally created data, for which they had defined strict guidelines and relied heavily on throughout their workflow systems. This client had expanded their operations into a new area of business which required them to rely on their outside data supplier partners to a much greater extent for the quality and consistency of the data which entered their systems. Needless to say, these new data streams were experiencing much higher failure rates, and as a result, were stressing their workflow systems in ways they had not experienced before. These failures were causing a "log jam" of media files which would quickly fill up the workflow storage reserves and clog parts of their IT network due to the re-routing and reprocessing of these files. A cascade of completely new workflow challenges had caught the organization off guard and was causing a significant amount of stress on their operations. Read More
