Audi – Mediaportal / Mediathek with ViMP and Oracle
Audi – Mediaportal / Media with ViMP and Oracle
Social media is all around us these days. Presentations, product placement, e-learning or video marketing, for companies that have tapped into this potential, it can hardly be imagined working without it. But how do you get your large variety of Media distributed in a big intranet? What is the best way to manage the massive amount of data? And how can the solution be integrated in the established system? Together with Audi we set out to find answers to these questions.
60.000 user in the intranet access media? We have a solution!
The goal was a web-optimized media center, which autonomously converts videos into the needed web-format and distributes them on the video sharing website or other systems in the Audi network.
The fundament of the solution was ViMP, which was developed by the ViMP GmbH.
Built upon this video sharing software many tweaks and modifications were made.
New ViMP-Design according to CI-Guidelines
Meanwhile the user interface of ViMP was completely redesigned in accordance to Audi’s current CI. Adapted to the needs of the enterprise it convinces with its especially intuitive usability and focussed functionality. More in a separate article.
Integrating ViMP in the Enterprise structures
Linked to the internal LDAP System the users login data is synchronized over a interface. A additional login is not needed. Users login over a global authentication service, which grants access to all systems in the Audi network. The system receives further information over a attached „calling card“, in which every user is listed. Another interesting interface is the external upload-dialogue, which allows the upload of media in the CMS and the implementation into a media player on the CMS page.
ViMP with Oracle? – Its possible!
During the course of our work, the Video & Social Media CMS ViMP was set on a Oracle-Database. More can be found in a separate article.
