Spending time watching the Winter Olympics got me thinking about all the files in motion. Snow conditions, weather forecasts, video footage, results, reservations, contracts, advertisements, HD images. It’s exciting to think about all the information in motion during the Olympics.
There are quite a few corporations and organizations who are probably giving their Accellion file transfer a workout during this Olympics including advertising companies, broadcasting organizations, hotels, ski resorts…not to mention healthcare organizations. After watching the downhill skiing – I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Accellion is being used for transferring medical images this Olympics – ouch!
Perhaps a couple of the more interesting Accellion clients this Olympic season are SBS – Special Broadcasting Service – an Australian broadcaster and the Guinness World Records. SBS is about as far from Vancouver as you can get, and yes it’s currently summer, but the news of Aussie Lydia Lassila winning the gold medal in the women’s freestyle aerials is burning up the airwaves down under. To read more about SBS use of Accellion check out the SBS Accellion case study. And then there is the Guinness World Records. Will the pants of the Norwegian curling team make it into the Guinness records with most number of Facebook fans for a piece of clothing? If you haven’t checked out the pants here’s the Facebook link – 435,000+ fans at last count.
Exciting as the Olympics are – they only happen once every four years. In-between there are everyday reasons for using Accellion to secure the transfer of files.
Accellion file transfer is not just an Olympic event.
