The Nature of Vizrt Projects

The mission of a typical Vizrt MAM project is to perform an initial or incremental system implementation of a media asset management system (MAM). The customer usually relies on Vizrt MAM products to fundamentally change the workflows and methods at the very core of their business. It is Vizrt’s mission to help our customers to achieve their business objectives through professional delivery of Vizrt software and services.

A project can vary in size and duration but will usually cover  design, installation, configuration, testing and training services up until Go Live.

The Project Team

A typical project team consists of a Project Manager (PM), a Solution Architect (SA) and one or more  System Engineers (SE). The SA is responsible for the technical solutions that are provided to the customer to fulfill contractual requirements. The SE tasks include installation, configuration, test and problem resolution during the project. In some projects the Project Team tasks also include customization development or design services.

Solution Architect Role

The Solution Architect at Vizrt has the overall technical responsibility in a project.  

In the design phase of a project, the Solution Architect is responsible for defining a solution that meets the customers requirements, using the existing components of Viz One, as well as by suggesting development of new functionality when necessary.

In the delivery phase, the Solution Architect acts as the technical lead; making sure that the technical parts of the project run smoothly, identifying and addressing technical difficulties and making sure these are communicated to the project manager promptly.

For daily tasks related to project delivery, the Solution Architect reports to the Project Manager for that project. In a wider context the Solution Architect is part of the Solutions Team and reports to the Senior Director of MAM.
