Business Solutions Case Study: Nurturing the Launch of a Content Distribution Network

by Plaster Group’s Business Solutions Team Challenge Our client—a global leader in software— had a Content Distribution Network (CDN) product that was showing its age; it could no longer handle the data volumes customers needed—now measured in petabytes—and required immediate replacement. Our client partnered with a third-party developer to offer a CDN product that would service the needs of current customers, allow for the acquisition of new clientele, and complement larger cloud, SaaS, and IaaS initiatives at the company. Plaster Group’s Business Solutions team was asked to help our client’s newly-formed CDN team with the launch and day-to-day management of this product. Plaster Group consultants would need to help the team define project scope, communicate with third-party developers regarding technical specifications, organize the product’s launch, and manage growth parallel with customer demand and technological capacity.
