Save the date! "SSO : a strategic and operational challenge for broadcasters" -
EBU & RTBF Workshop  in Brussels, 17-18 October 2018


Broadcasters need to centralize user data gathered across several portals and services; users want personalization without the hassle of creating multiple accounts. Is SSO the solution?

This EBU Big Data Initiative (BDI) workshop organized by the RTBF aims to address how single sign-on (SSO) technology can enhance the user experience and streamline broadcasters' handling of data gathered from various sources. We will hear from several external speakers and have the opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss the challenges for PSM with technical and legal deciders from across the EBU membership. Watch this space for invitations!
