Solution Beacon and Oracle Team to Create a Highly Differentiated Solution for the Media and Entertainment Industry


Solution Beacon, a Certified Advantage Partner in the Oracle PartnerNetwork, and Oracle today announced that Solution Beacon will provide an enhanced media and entertainment industry-specific solution that will integrate to Oracle(r) Media and Entertainment solutions. Synergist Corp. was created by Blue Skies, LLC and Solution Beacon to develop this solution. It will include customized front-end modules focused specifically on entertainment industry requirements that will integrate to the Oracle(r) E-Buisness Suite.
Synergist plans to automate the entire production process saving time in preproduction planning, decreasing set-up time in the shooting of every scene, and providing needed visibility into the status of post-production editing. The cost savings can be used to shoot more footage of higher quality, which will help increase the likelihood of a better production, achieving higher revenue. The solution will focus on the integration of budgeting, scheduling and actuals.

Synergist will be integrated with Oracle applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle technology software. The complete footprint will provide everything needed to run an entertainment company, including financials, manufacturing, human resources, engineering, distribution and customer relationship management configured to leverage entertainment industry best practices.

“The process of producing programming for television and film is complex and fast paced. It includes the tracking of many dynamic activities, people in various locations, equipment and scheduling logistics,” said Stephen Pullin, Executive Producer / Director PULLIN TeleVISION and the hit shows PINKS and PINK ALL OUT on Speed Channel. “Tracking of expenses is difficult to streamline, and up-to-date comparison of budget to actuals is lacking, restricting the influence I can have on profit margins.”

“Isolated, stand-alone legacy systems are pervasive throughout the media and entertainment industry. The industry is becoming more geographically dispersed as it relies more heavily on freelance workers and manages collaboration between location shoots and executive producers,” said Steve Bamberger, Vice President, Media and Entertainment, Oracle Industries Business Unit. “This solution leverages best practices, Web-enabled technology and project capabilities inherent in Oracle to provide a truly global solution.”

“Solution Beacon is pleased to continue its commitment to customers within and beyond the Oracle user community to enhance the capabilities in Oracle applications with front-end modules that will provide a user experience unprecedented in this industry,” said Craig Hobson, President of Solution Beacon.

Solution Beacon is a Certified Advantage Partner in the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
