WildTangent Case Study
“StrataCore’s custom sourcing process helped us quickly identify provider finalists and easily compare CDN options side-by-side with our current service.”
—Mark Trotter, Sr. Director of IT Operations, WildTangent
The CDN market is a busy place, with many different providers and solutions available. WildTangent engaged with StrataCore to vet the market for competitive solutions to compare to their current service. While pricing for their existing CDN was annually negotiated, the pricing failed to decrease inline with market pricing, and they had to pay a premium for value added services.
Based on the requirements, StrataCore engaged with several qualified providers who could meet or exceed what WildTangent expected for service levels, performance standards, and cost saving. StackPath was the perfect fit due to meeting all requirements, as well as offering favorable contract terms.
Cost Savings and Service Improvements
The comprehensive CDN solution selected by WildTangent will save them 40% on current distribution costs. In addition to the cost savings, the chosen service offering from StackPath will add higher service levels including hands-on, 24 x 7 client support, and frictionless onboarding. They also gained greater flexibility with favorable contract terms and no long-term commitment.
Custom Sourcing Process
After gathering all technical and business requirements, StrataCore went to work to find the best provider and CDN solution for WildTangent’s business and technical needs. Several competitive providers were identified to bid on the opportunity. StrataCore’s unique comparison matrix and custom sourcing process allowed WildTangent to quickly identify provider finalists based on cost, performance, and service levels. After a trial run of the top two options, they chose StackPath’s CDN offering as the winning solution.
