PBS Connects Digital Media Supply Chain with OpenText

PBS logo

America’s premiere Public Broadcast Network and media enterprise continues their industry-leading innovation to manage and distribute marketing, promotional, and program content for all their member stations with OpenText Media Management and workflow orchestration using OpenText Process Suite

As we continue to build new digital experiences online, we really want to re-purpose content rapidly in ways that we couldn’t in the past. Having content readily available in Media Management makes it much easier to find, repurpose, and build out those beautiful digital experiences.
