Streaming and podcast solutions provider StreamGuys has launched its second-generation SGreports solution, a log processing and content analytics toolset for live streams and podcasts.
The updated solution, part of StreamGuys’ growing software-as-a-service (SaaS) suite of analytics and monitoring services, offers a much-improved user experience through improved data aggregation and presentation, along with quicker access to streaming analytics. StreamGuys has initially made the updated solution available for small-to-mid sized clients, and will soon expand availability to larger enterprise accounts that require higher levels of customisation.
SGreports helps broadcasters and media companies access metrics to understand how audiences interact with streaming content, and then leverage the resulting data to make intelligent business and programming decisions. The software presents visualisations on user dashboards to help them quickly filter and compare data on programme streams and podcast episodes, for example.
In its previous iteration, users manually parsed data through SGreports’ expansive filter options to build reports. While the process of exporting data was straightforward, the data aggregation process could grow to be time consuming as the number of sources of metrics grew.
Robert Minnix, Head of Product, StreamGuys, said, “Broadcasters with varied streaming portfolios often have specific reporting needs that weren’t easily services by the prior iteration of SGreports.
“SGreports now offers a more cohesive environment to aggregate data from different subsets to achieve a singular view, as opposed to managing data across many dashboards. The simple explanation is that users have a more consumable view of everything in one place, which is especially useful for larger media networks and market-based streamers who have a lot of ground to cover.
“We have now centralised all this data to a single pane of glass.”
