Digipede Goes Hollywood

September 16th, 2006 · No Comments

OK, I don’t hype many of Digipede’s new customer announcements here, but go read this.  I’ll wait.

We are very excited to be working with award-winning visual effects studio Digital Dimension.  These guys get it, and are a lot of fun to work with.  Multiple rendering programs, multiple locations, multiple simultaneous projects — and a very keen sense of how to manage complex workflow.  Indeed, the key driver for this implementation is not raw computing power — a pile of hardware and a bunch of application-specific batch schedulers can provide that — but the IT agility provided by giving a clearer view into their entire production pipeline.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again — small and medium businesses have a much clearer idea of how IT relates to their bottom line than most big enterprises.  With the right tools, Digital Dimension can turn CPU-hours into money.  We make it easier to manage their production pipeline, they make money.  We let them take on more projects (and/or bigger ones), they make money.  We help them adjust to changing customer priorities without disruption, they make money.  I don’t need to do their ROI analysis for them — they know it already.  It’s in their DNA.
Watch for more about this one.
