Arvato Systems accompanies MTV Oy into the AWS Cloud
Founded in the 1950s, MTV Oy is Finland‘s largest private TV and communications group. With various free TV and several pay TV channels, MTV Oy reaches three million viewers daily. The MTV.fi and radionova.fi websites score about two million users a week; MTV Oy publishes around ten million videos a month in its MTV Katsomo online TV services.
Stable and well-functioning partnerships are important for Arvato Systems. As provider of the same-named CMS, CoreMedia recommended the experts from Arvato Systems to the Finnish TV station MTV Oy for the migration of the CMS into the cloud.
As part of a previous project, Arvato Systems had already successfully implemented its media sales solution package S4AdSales for optimized commercial placement at MTV Oy. Convinced of die IT service provider‘s expertise, MTV Oy has now assigned Arvato Systems to adapt the CoreMedia CMS to its individual requirements and thus ensure the solution‘s cloud readiness.
We are very confident that we can rely on CoreMedia‘s recommendation and once more on our partner Arvato Systems.Risto Koivula, Chief Technology Officer at MTV Oy
Initially, Arvato Systems analyzed the status quo of the existing on-premise installation of CoreMedia CMS and worked out a roadmap. The roadmap formed the basis for the code-specific adaptions that were necessary to operate the CMS as platform-as-a-service (PaaS) in the cloud, making the TV broacaster the first media company to use the cloud version of the CMS with ‘CoreMedia on Cloud‘. After completion of the migration, the IT service provider will continue to develop the CMS within the framework of application management and offer MTV Oy appropriate support. In addition, the TV station benefits from professional release management: The system integrator will maintain the CMS and automatically install updates, which ultimately ensures long-term cloud capability.
As a platinum partner of CoreMedia, Arvato Systems convinced the media group not only with its expertise in adequately customizing and easily implementing CoreMedia, but also with its experiences and know-how in the media industry. Furthermore, Arvato Systems is an experienced cloud enabler and multi-cloud provider as well as a certified partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. The company also provides its own private cloud. Following the migration to the Amazon cloud, which will be supported by the Finnish IT consulting firm Cybercom, Arvato Systems will be responsible for the application and relase management and advise Cybercom on infrastructre planning and system monitoring. Moreover, Arvato Systems plans to further develop the cloud-based version of CoreMedia CMS.
