Dalet xN exploits both the technical and business benefits that cloud and virtualisation make possible.
Dalet has talked about the company’s long-term vision which involves a commitment to cloud-based and virtualized workflows. In particular it is marketing its Dalet platforms, Dalet Galaxy, Dalet AmberFin and Dalet Brio under the new banner Dalet xN, derived from L’extension Nuage which is French for ‘the extended cloud’.
“Dalet xN exploits both the technical and business benefits that cloud and virtualization make possible,” states Stephane Schlayen, COO, Dalet. “While the concept of migrating a workflow or specific element of one’s workflow to the cloud or virtualized environment itself is not revolutionary, Dalet xN solutions go beyond this by extending and augmenting cloud and hybrid environments to provide a truly dynamic and flexible business infrastructure.”
He added, “Through smart management of physical and virtual technology, Dalet xN solutions allow content owners, creators and distributors to easily respond to resource needs and dynamically scale workflows, or parts thereof, at will. Accessible administration and user tools deliver the ease of use that users have come to expect from virtualized and cloud-based services and solutions.
“Intuitive mobile apps and web-based user interfaces combined with robust automation and advanced metrics reporting gives users more information and more freedom to be creative at every level of the business, from artistic tasks to business direction.”
Added: Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet. “Whereas today many organizations offer a specific service or product that often puts limits on the type of workflow you can implement, Dalet offerings can be tightly integrated or loosely coupled to fit a user’s specific workflow needs. No longer do users need to be tied to their desk. With Dalet xN, they can be more mobile, more creative and more informed.
“You can provision for parts or all of your workflow tasks off-premise. What’s even more attractive is that you can turn it on or off as needed. This is ideal if you are increasing capacity for occasions such as covering elections or global sporting events where you need the additional infrastructure for a short period of time. It’s also ideal if you are launching a new media venture and want to minimize your investment while you test the waters. Dalet xN removes the overhead and provides the resources you need to grow, without the prohibitive upfront investment.”
