Key pains and challenges

  • Revenue Growth Requirements: Increasing cost pressures are driving the need for greater operational efficiencies. Many media and cable companies are burdened with antiquated systems that make reusing and repurposing news and other content difficult and expensive. Content creators rely upon too many tools, each with its own interface, workflow training requirements, and content discovery method. These tools and systems are silos of information and arranged around delivery mediums as opposed to communities of creators or the content itself. These systems are old, not integrated or mobile, thereby making collaboration and utilization very difficult. Media and cable companies must enhance team coordination and communication including resource integration and workflow and task management.
  • The proliferation of mobile workers: Field-based workers and remote content creators are increasing in numbers and have greater requirements for productivity and collaboration regardless of location. Media and cable companies need to invest and support these functions while also ensuring security across any device.
  • More demanding and sophisticated consumers: Consumers want digital and more personalized content. This drives the need for media and cable companies to provide more services and enable story-centric content life cycles for multi-platform delivery.
  • Intellectual property (IP) protection: Media and cable companies must ensure proper management of their intellectual property portfolios. This is essential to the protection and monetization of their core content assets, helping create new revenue streams and, therefore, future growth. Media companies are under pressure to increase sales and licensing of IP rights, which require investment in richer business analytics tools to enable improved decision-making.
