Project Name

DIRECTV Advanced Advertising

Overview

PDG designed and oversaw a complete re-architecture of the DIRECTV satellite advertising platform, which more than doubled the number of ads that could be targeted to customers and brought down the amount of required lead time to play out a targeted ad from 24 hours to under 4 hours. This re-architecture enabled DIRECTV to enter the advertising interconnect managed by Comcast/NCC which doubled DIRECTV's yearly advertising revenue. PDG also designed and developed two critical applications in the advertising platform and built out real-time alerting and reporting dashboards used by the 24/7 advertising operations teams. PDG continues to lead incremental architectural changes for the satellite platform and is also assisting in architecting the next-generation advertising platform for streaming services such as DIRECTV NOW.

AT&T TV and HBO MAX Technical Support

Overview

PDG led the functional analysis, technical design, and implementation of web applications used by agents to support AT&T TV and HBO Max. For AT&T TV, PDGC enhanced ReactJS based agent portals and Java/Spring microservices to pull in and render STB hardware and home internet diagnostics. These diagnostics were supplemented with technical support procedures, driven by Nokia SMP workflows. For HBO Max, similar agent portals were enhanced to support customer issues related to AT&T packages and offerings of HBO Max, eligibility rules, pricing, and provider-based authentication on the HBO Max app. These efforts were complemented with real-time analytics and reporting to gather insights on support case management and agent effectiveness.
