Software developer MPP Global has migrated its subscription management and billing platform, eSuite, to Microsoft.
The move will provide its media and communications clients with increased agility, scalability and in-region support to meet growing expectations for on-demand and live media content.
“Our eSuite platform spans the entire subscriber life cycle, enabling clients to easily experiment with various service offerings and get to market in a matter of minutes,” said Ian Gray, head of global channel and strategic alliances at MPP Global. “Demand for subscription and live event-based direct-to-consumer content in media and entertainment, both video and written, continues to grow at amazing pace together with supporting monetisation models.
“Being fully hosted in Microsoft Azure delivers maximum resilience, security and performance, enabling our clients to grow seamlessly on a regional and global scale.”
According to MPP Global, the move to Azure represents a significant investment in future-proofing the firm’s software-as-a-service platform and reinforces its commitment within media and communications. The firm will also use Azure to support new and emerging business models such as virtual live events and manage spikes in subscribers.
“The cloud infrastructure supporting subscription and billing services has never been more important in providing the global security, scalability and resilience, critical in satisfying consumer experience expectations,” said Simon Crownshaw, worldwide strategy director of media and entertainment at Microsoft. “The Microsoft Azure global infrastructure and subscriber management software deployed by MPP Global, enables content owners to focus on what they do best: creation, delivery and monetisation of content, without having to spend precious time thinking about infrastructure stability and scale.”
