From the media and broadcast company perspective, FIMS enables much better tracking and task management, as well as the ability to evolve seamlessly over time. With technology evolving all the time, being able to readily integrate new solutions gives broadcasters a huge advantage. So – why aren’t all systems FIMS-compliant? FIMS is an ongoing effort and as such, is not without its challenges. We work in an industry that is undergoing constant change, making this effort a moving target. Companies have to agree to build on the standards, along with the limits they impose. And, a FIMS-compliant system does have its tradeoffs. With the standardization and simplicity of design, cost-savings, etc., comes slightly looser integration and performance. But we see the long-term benefi ts far outweighing these short-term issues. In any case, for FIMS to fulfi ll its destiny as a plug-and-play solution, it’s crucial that every actor in the ecosystem plays the game. By cultivating an ecosystem of applications that can all play nice together, broadcasters will be able to build best-of-breed solutions that can be evolved over years to come while saving them money. Now in its sixth year, FIMS continues to gain awareness slowly but surely. But when it comes to making this solution a widespread reality, it’s in the hands of the broadcast and media companies to make the demand.
