Digital Value Chain Transformation (DVCT)

The Situation Today

The Media & Entertainment (M&E) industry is in the middle of a rapid digital transformation. According to the latest reports, media companies are expected to triple their revenue from digital channels by 2015. But they won’t succeed unless they keep pace with consumers’ demands. As consumers become more astute users of digital technologies, they expect multimedia services (ubiquitous and protected access) in many formats, accessible on multiple devices and platforms in real time and at a low price.

Demand for an enhanced multichannel content experience requires companies to become exceptionally agile, looking anew at their digital value chains.
