Media & Entertainment
The Situation Today
With the advent of new forms of content, the Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry has evolved into a dynamic and inter-connected global arena. Third Screen (cell phone-based content including video and music) has become the favored platform with an estimated 7 billion users, and growing.
Despite this, M&E companies face challenges in adapting to, and engaging with, their customers digitally. They are trying to cope with the effects of industry-wide transformation and the disruption that is being caused by co-existing traditional and new business models, changing consumer consumption habits and the need to compete across newer channels, which is increasing intellectual property misuse.
Thus, the industry is primed for digital experience, where digital interaction is directly affected by customers who are empowered, connected and playing an increasingly collaborative role in developing new products and services. Alternative content delivery platforms are increasing competition within the industry, and content is now being shaped around the consumer. With such a unique environment of 24*7 connectivity and collaboration, content alone will no longer be the differentiator, and as a result, some of the traditional business models will become obsolete.
