Showtime Case Study

Knowledge Management System Prototype

Case Study

  • BRAND:Showtime
  • TYPE:Television series knowledge management solution prototype

Development of a television series regarding historical events involves consistent research to understand concept, story line, casting and series promotional messaging. Showtime needed to archive such research, which could be easily accessed when developing promotional and marketing concepts and positioning.

We prototyped such a system for Showtime, using a combination of records management and content management, to meet business requirements.

The prototype provided a roadmap for actual implementation in SharePoint.
