Media Pocket is an integral part of FAME Platform

FAME opened its doors to the public on October 16th 2019 and the long project was finished successfully. It was a challenging project which helped us learn to become an even better company and develop the concept even further.

Background

Located in Helsinki’s Mall of Tripla, The Finnish Music Hall of Fame (or simply FAME) is a high-tech experience of Finnish domestic music; from symphonies to rap and from folk to heavyrock – not to mention virtual karaoke!


The project began in 2018 via a bidding contest, where FAME was looking for partners to design and create the FAME PLATFORM, the cloud service and media library behind it all, which enables high-quality content and publishing management. FAME chose Media Tailor as the technological partner to deliver this system. The project began in January 2019 and was handed over in October 2019 as Mall of Tripla and FAME opened their doors to the public.

“The system seemed clear and easy-to-use from the very beginning.”

The project was executed using agile software development and DevOps methods as part of Media Tailor’s continuous production workflow. A dedicated Product Owner was assigned for FAME Platform who also is in charge of developing Media Tailor’s cloud services portfolio. A software development team consisting of various specialists made sure the user interface as well as all functions and integrations were properly coded. The media management system – Media Pocket – was developed from scratch by Media Tailor and it’s in the core of FAME Platform.

“Media Pocket makes it possible for FAME Platform to normalize, archive and organize media assets in a great way. Additionally, all files are safe and fast to access. A centralized platform saves a lot of time for us.”

Media Tailor was part of FAME’s project group, which consisted of various collaboration partners and which also met at regular intervals to update all stakeholders of project development. This helped to make sure the successful execution of the entire FAME project as schedules and status was known to everyone involved. As the exhibition material started to come together, Media Tailor assisted in the onboarding of FAME Platform.

Media Tailor’s Product Owner met users and stakeholders regularly during the project. This was crucial for the success, as on one hand we had to make sure to take everyone’s views and expectations into consideration, but on the other we had to manage them. The onboarding of Media Pocket was done with proper introduction and continuous support.

“FAME Platform started as just a vision. It was great to see it come through with the help of Media Pocket.”

FAME opened its doors to the public on October 16th 2019 and the long project was finished successfully. Media Tailor is proud that it had the chance to take part in such culturally significant and ambitious project. It was a challenging project which helped us learn to become an even better company and develop the concept even further.

“When FAME Platform expands to international markets, it’s crucial that our partners are capable and committed to this concept. It is easy for us to trust Media Tailor in the future as well.”
