Our technology is one of their most strategic assets in the emerging new broadcast and media world. After all, it is not going to be about the ones that can put the gear in a rack and sign up to some cloud services – it will be about the ones that succeed in leveraging and orchestrating those ecosystems end-to-end in clever ways, the ones that can build a real agile operation and ride the waves of continuous transformation.”
