The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Kansas City’s flagship entertainment venue has one goal: uniting performers with patrons. The vision of the Kauffman Center leadership is clear – if a task does not meet this one goal, it is outsourced. This operating model means a facility that would usually be staffed by upward of 150+ has just 30 full time employees. Not a single member of the team is a systems engineer, technician or even a CTO.

“It’s as if the NetStandard employees are our employees. We feel that they belong here”The entertainment industry’s product, if it is successful, appears to the consumer to be an effortless venture – fun, exciting, and glamorous. While it may be fun, exciting, and glamorous, it is anything but effortless. The behind-the-scenes work involved in bringing any creative product to the stage or screen is overwhelming, and as any Hollywood producer will confirm, the technology requirements are very serious. Collaboration between what could be thousands of participants must be flawless and enormous amounts of data files must be easily accessible at every moment.
