Go to Axiom Project

Axiom Project

Comprised of two main components, Wall-E and EVE. Wall-E is a strategic planning tool that enables the creation of the ABC Network lineup. The lineup is the foundation for ABC Ad Sales and Marketing which generates approximately $3B in annual revenue. Wall-E is used by senior level executives of Disney and ABC. EVE is a multi-department system that manages the detailed 52 week Prime Time schedule. It is the system of record and point of origin for ABC Network scheduling which flows to downstream business units such as Broadcast Operations, Finance, Accounting, Direct to Consumer, ABC Online, etc. EVE disseminates information through a company portal and allows business units to subscribe to a data feed. EVE has automated manual reporting processes and streamlined work flows between Programming, Production and Talent Development departments.

NGRD Project

The Next Generation Reporting & Data (NGRD) project is a major initiative to build and establish an enterprise-scale reporting and data platform for all of Disney ABC Television. The phased approach will ultimately migrate current reporting systems onto the Amazon Web Services platform as well as create one unified reporting portal for the company. We will create a hybrid, cloud-based (AWS) and on-premise reporting/data platform that consolidates current reporting portals into a single flexible, extensible portal that enables back-end data sources to easily connect with front end reporting tools such as Microsoft SSRS, Power BI and Tableau.

C3PO Project

Credits, Consolidation, Composition, Planning & Organization (C3PO) will streamline work flows between post production business units as well as centralize the episodic television credits into a single source system. Users will be able to utilize the system for managing show credits, automatically create end credits and output end credits into video and/or single images for post production facilities.
