The Problem(s) • IT-based media technologies have arrived • Proprietary solutions exist • Could be free and still cost more than hardware with standards!! • Media Interfaces tightly coupled / complex • Little process management in media • Little / no KPIs • Poor visibility of work in progress
Tight versus Loose Coupling Changing a Tool is EASY! Changing a Tool is Difficult (Disruptive)
