Qvest Media Development Advanced Solutions for Digital Media Transformation

The use of software nowadays makes it possible to conveniently map most business and production processes. However, careful consideration should be given to the choice of software models and solutions to be used before an investment decision is made.

Qvest Media can support you in the decision-making process. We have extensive knowledge of the software landscape in the area of broadcasting and media and are therefore able to put together an appropriate portfolio of software based on your expectations and processes. We will show you whether the desired results can be achieved using standard software solutions, where modifications and connectors are required for cross-system networking and where it is technically and commercially worthwhile to have customised applications developed. We will also provide extensive advice on the appropriate architecture and in this way develop an overall solution for your media processes tailored to your requirements. In the process, we take a close look at a broad range of software topics and models:

  • Content management systems
  • Rights management & ad sales software
  • Device and network management
  • Customised software
  • Software-as-a-service (SaaS)
  • Cloud-based solutions (also as SaaS, PaaS, IaaS)
  • Software connectors & APIs
  • Software layer systems such as enterprise service bus (ESB)
  • GUI & UX development
  • Modern web-based architectures
  • Proprietary vs. OSS solutions

Connecting Systems Our Services in the Development Process

Achieving interoperability between systems at different technology layers is one of our core tasks in the development field. We also specialise in integrating cloud-based software solutions and platforms into existing IT infrastructures. The use of existing or specially developed APIs, connectors and enterprise service bus architectures enables us to connect new kinds of applications with each other and transform them into seamlessly integrated and automated systems. Here our project teams of solutions architects and software developers make use of modern development and procedural methodologies such as test-driven development (TDD) and SCRUM. They involve you closely in every stage of development, informing you about project progress and giving you the opportunity to make your own influential contribution.

Our consulting and development portfolio includes:

  • Requirements analysis and interface definition
  • Software consulting, market analysis and software selection
  • Support for software implementation projects
  • Development of software concepts for cross-system functionality
  • Management of vendors involved in the development process
  • Inclusion of external development to close missing links
  • Development of connectors, interfaces, APIs, software packages and applications
  • Advanced methodologies such as TDD & agile project management (SCRUM)
  • Software development life cycle
