A leading video streaming platform was growing at a breakneck pace and had a difficult time scaling to meet increased advertiser and user demands. Defining and executing a clear technology and organizational roadmap to scale the business for this new growth was critical.

Solution

  • Completed gap analysis of proprietary technology platforms and existing integrations
  • Defined and implemented a future state architecture including customer relationship management (CRM), order management systems (OMS), and BI and analytics, as well as cross-functional order-to-cash business processes
  • Completed multi-year, multi-platform technology redesign spanning requirements, vendor selection, design, configuration, testing, training and post-launch support

Outcome

Created and executed an ad technology and organizational roadmap enabling significant growth across all operational functions, including:
  • Multiyear, multiplatform technology redesign spanning CRM, OMS, and BI
  • Revenue growth to over $1 billion in advertising revenue
  • Completed role-based end user training of all new processes and services for more than 200 users, ensuring new workflows launched with proper adoption
