Scaling to Olympic Proportions
The 2012 Summer Olympics in London were the most widely streamed live event in television history. On Thursday, the BBC’s Jem Rayfield joinsÂ MarkLogicâ€™s Chief Content Specialist Diane Burley and her colleague Matt Turner, CTO of Media, for a one-hour webinar to discuss how the U.K. broadcaster prepared for event and executed on its plan.
Learn what it took to migrate the BBC Future Media department from a relational content model and static publishing framework to a fully dynamic semantic publishing (DSP) architecture. The dynamic semantic publishing architecture underpins the recently re-launched and refreshed BBC Sports site and indeed the BBC’s Olympics 2012 online content. Other topics to be covered include:
- The BBC dramatically increased the breadth and depth of its content with a dynamic approach to webpage creation WHILE dramatically improving the efficiency of the editorial teams to create and manage pages
- Live interactive statistics improved the online streaming experience
- Editorial teams can focus on creating versus managing content
- A Big Data platform allows the BBC to unify storage of all content data types including news, real-time data feeds and stats, user generated content and rich media metadata
The webinar starts at 8:00 am PT/11:00 am ET. Registration is available here.
