    An InformationWeek Webcast:

    Scaling to Olympic Proportions

    Duration: 60 Minutes

    Offering live-streaming (across television and desktop) would be ambitious enough for most any company – but planning to live-stream the Olympics across four platforms was a stretch beyond imagination. In this 60-min webinar find out how the BBC engaged with millions of viewers across desktops, mobiles, tablets and TVs through its 24 live-streams and 2500 hours of Video-on-demand (VOD).

    In 2010 while streaming the World Cup, the BBC was running up against the wall when it came to scaling. With the Olympics just two years away, the British broadcaster decided to re-architect its infrastructure to be metadata driven.

    Join Jem Rayfield from the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), as he joins MarkLogic’s Chief Content Specialist Diane Burley and her colleague Matt Turner, CTO of Media, to talk about what it took to migrate the BBC Future Media department from a relational content model and static publishing framework to a fully dynamic semantic publishing (DSP) architecture. The dynamic semantic publishing architecture underpins the recently re-launched and refreshed BBC Sports site and indeed the BBC's Olympics 2012 online content. In this webinar you will learn how:

    • The BBC dramatically increased the breadth and depth of its content with a dynamic approach to webpage creation WHILE dramatically improving the efficiency of the editorial teams to create and manage pages
    • Live interactive statistics improved the online streaming experience
    • Editorial teams can focus on creating versus managing content
    • A Big Data platform allows the BBC to unify storage of all content data types including news, real-time data feeds and stats, user generated content and rich media metadata
    • An enterprise NoSQL approach allowed the BBC to launch this new system and break many new traffic and data records during the Olympics
