As Multi-DRM Becomes the Norm, Buy is a Smarter Strategy than Build

As a follow up to the first paper from Frost & Sullivan, Total Cost of Ownership: Key Metrics for DRM Strategy, this latest paper focuses on the true levels of cost and complexity associated with a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to multi-DRM from an online video publisher (OVP) perspective. While the first paper discusses the client-side complexity, this follow-up paper focuses on the specifics of back-office development.

Fresh research uncovers that OVPs are spending more than they realize on in-house undertakings. They also found that an integrated DRM platform presents a lucrative growth opportunity, where revenue opportunity is higher with DRM-secured content.
