One of the biggest trends recently in our industry is the move toward microservices. IABM’s CTO Stan Moote gets the facts from Medianswer’s Chris Lennon on working with multivendor microservices.

Media Microservices level the playing field for how entertainment technology can participate in the wider ecosystem of Cloud and Data Center providing a platform for operational efficiency, innovation, and the bridge to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Christopher Lennon (President & CEO, MediAnswers) talks on how microservices have taken other industries by storm, and how they are beginning to do so in the media business
Ronan Poullaouec (CTO, AVIWEST) explains how microservices are a software architecture style from which a complex set of applications are broken down into several independent and loosely coupled processes – each often specializing in a single task.
Richard Cartwright (CTO, Streampunk Media Ltd) discusses the software-only approach in comparison to other methods; describes an initial set of open-source microservices for common colorspace transformations, sizing, mixing and compositing; and more.

They understand that if they are to be a factor in an era of increased personalization, where consumers have an unprecedented number of sources for their video entertainment and a growing diversity of options for consuming it, they need to inject their infrastructures and business models with new levels of agility, malleability and cost effectiveness. And they need to do it soon. They also understand that the modernization of their technology foundations is not something that happens overnight and that navigating the transition from their existing infrastructures to next-generation architectures requires both a steady hand and precision budgeting. With that in mind, what follows is a list of the five technologies trends that will play the most pivotal roles...
