Skyline Communications, the global leader in AI-powered end-to-end multi-vendor network management and orchestration solutions for the ICT media and broadband industry, announces the launch of the Project Collaboration module as part of its DataMiner Cloud Platform. This new cloud module facilitates agile collaboration for distributed DevOps teams and is specifically tailored towards managing deployment and continuous evolution of ICT media and broadband industry ecosystems. It provides a wealth of features for agile distributed squads to intuitively manage all their activities and to track progress as they go along on their quest to deliver maximum value for their business.
“Noteworthy is that Project Collaboration is a fully in-house developed solution, natively integrated in our DataMiner Cloud Platform. It is tailored exactly to the activities and processes involved in the agile build-out and continuous evolution of powerful ICT media and broadband industry platforms,” commented Bert Vandenberghe, CTO at Skyline Communications. “This applies to the entire stack, from the development of new interface connectors on the data ingest and control layer, all the way across automation and orchestration workflows to the UIs for the users. This is essential to ensure that we have a clear path towards not only establishing a powerful agile collaboration for a distributed DevOps team, but also tightly integrating this with the actual technology workflows, and creating a powerful CI/CD experience. That’s a very powerful proposition down the road.”
Stats Perform embraces new Project Collaboration module
“At Stats Perform, our intention was to create a schedule that covers tens of thousands of live sporting events a year. We would use that schedule to drive our coverage and automate our resources. It needed to automatically route live events to the right products or offices, and manage the capacity of the platform and all the resources that define it.
We were looking for a company that used the same agile methodology as Stats Perform. So many traditional broadcast projects are “waterfall” in their approach and that is simply not how our company works.
Skyline not only could offer us the right software technology to achieve our ambitious objectives, but they were already agile, even sharing their own integration cloud project management tool “Collaborate” with their clients. Skyline’s experience in monitoring and orchestration is boosted by their new resource scheduling tool. This greatly simplified the integration of our services, so that one application was able to schedule, automate and monitor our resources. We worked together very efficiently on the launch of the new platform and were delighted to deliver on time and on budget, and exceed our MVP goals.
We look forward to a long relationship with Skyline and to continuing to drive the automation and reporting of the Stats Perform platform to new heights,” commented Stats Perform.
“What we are witnessing today in the media and broadband industry is much more than just a technology evolution. The essence of it is maximum agility, and this fundamentally redefines pretty much everything that you can think of, including our way of working and collaborating. The latter applies to everything, also to the relationship between Skyline as a technology company and our user base,” commented Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications. “While we have already fully adopted Agile methodologies within our own organization, we want to further extend that and also embrace our user community. This is not just about applying a partnership mindset, because we already have that with the companies that use our technology. We really want to take it well beyond that.”
Both our earlier announced new open Dojo community and this new Project Collaboration module are all about bringing people together, empowering them to move easily and quickly, and delivering maximum value to the business in a very continuous manner. It really doesn’t matter who is in the squads; the company they belong to is subordinate to the goals of the squad. User stories and use cases need to be managed with maximum agility in order to deliver maximum business value. Project Collaboration is the technology to underpin that and bring the Agile Partnership to life, so that the users of the community can shine in this new era.
