Problem

Problem

McCann Worldgroup uses Microsoft’s SharePoint as its enterprise content management platform, storing media assets like video, audio, image, and documents in Microsoft’s Office cloud. As their media creation exploded, so did their growing SaaS storage overage charges. Storing all this media in their active archive quickly became a budgetary nightmare, but losing access or not preserving this intellectual capital was not an option. Their users liked SharePoint, so moving to a different enterprise content management platform would be expensive and fraught with its cost model challenges. Further, manually purging content from SharePoint would be time-consuming, error-prone, and impractical due to their size and scale.

Solution

Solution

Support Partners proposed AIR Archive for their active archive challenge with its’ unique capability to archive media content from SharePoint while deriving AI-enriched insight. Support Partners’ professional services assessed the SharePoint sites, calculating the diversity and size of assets and allowing the team to focus on those sites presenting the greatest cost challenge. AIR Archive migrated media based on pre-determined conditions from SharePoint into Microsoft’s Azure Blob Storage, reducing media costs. The users still use SharePoint’s interface to discover their assets, but now they receive additional AI-enriched insight. For videos and audio, personalities, emotions, labels, keyframes, and transcriptions align with the timecode, allowing the user to easily navigate to the specific sub-clips of interest. Discovery time went from tens of minutes to seconds, enabling their team to improve productivity.
