SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) on Monday announced a multi-year collaboration with Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) to reimagine the latter's core media supply chain and enterprise-wide media distribution platform.

MGM owns one of the world's largest libraries of film and television content and is focused on the production, acquisition, licensing, and global distribution of its film and television content across all media platforms.

MGM is migrating its content library and critical SAP workloads to AWS to power its media supply chain as well as support its content rights and distribution processes, the announcement said.

"AWS gives us the flexibility, scalability, reliability, and security to deliver premium content to customers through intelligent and automated supply chain solutions," said Doug Rousso, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of MGM.

"Our new cloud-based media supply chain will give us increased visibility into owned content, the ability to better inform our sales teams, and faster processing of licensing deal that will help us deliver more content experiences to viewers and grow new revenue opportunities," Rousso said.
