Hence, it is of the utmost importance that the selected provider has the sufficient capacity and competence to deliver the quality and expertise NRK requires. This Consultancy Assistance Agreement does not support the procurement of a specific product or a specific platform.

Currently, we not looking to acquire a specific product or platform. We are solely looking for a partner or service integrator who can guide and help us through the process from analysis to planning and practical implementation of a small virtualised post-production environment in the public cloud. The practical learnings from this initial process will be an important aspect of building a long-term strategy for post production systems at NRK.

NRK started the process this spring, by screening the market for possible providers, to get a basic understanding and overview of the current landscape in terms of virtualising post-production. We have used the RFI process to ensure that we ask the right questions and that we have the best approach in terms of the scope and requirements for this RFP.
