Case Study: Front Porch Digital


“We needed an EMEA hub for our operations to grow the market for our new cloud based portfolio of CSM solutions; London was clearly the most promising location with a major concentration of online video platform providers, broadcasters and content owners as well as existing customers,” says Mike Knaisch, President and CEO.

The Business Challenge
Based in Colorado, but with a global outlook, Front Porch Digital was looking for an EMEA infrastructure provider: “We needed an EMEA hub for our operations to grow the market for our new cloud based
portfolio of CSM solutions; London was clearly the most promising location with a major concentration of online video platform providers, broadcasters and content owners as well as existing customers,” says Mike Knaisch, President and CEO.

 “Our key concern in data center selection was the quality of facilities – in terms of security, reliability, professionalism of staff, standards compliance, and network connectivity - and we also needed seamless geographical market reach to allow our business to grow. A passive infrastructure provider was not the answer. Ideally, we wanted a proactive partner who could help us grow our business with leading broadcasters, online video platforms, system integrators, and content owners – an experienced operator with a mature ecosystem we could leverage.”
