The advantages of moving weather reporting and workflows into the cloud go way beyond the efficiency and flexibility of remote access and disaster recovery. They also include a boost in creativity as meteorologists share their work in central or regional libraries, the ability to back up staff challenged by severe weather events and the option of reducing operational footprints once the move away from hardware is complete. A TVNewsCheck webinar, sponsored by The Weather Company, will explore the possibilities of weather workflows in the cloud for TV engineers, meteorologists, news directors and station general managers.
