Communication, media and entertainment trends driving the market:

content consumption

High content consumption

Additional data sources can provide you better insight into when and where your customers are engaging with, and consuming, content: IoT and wearable sources, connecting to content more often than ever; usage-based sources such as accounts or subscription information; and geospatial sources such as satellites used to gain insight about event attendance.

new devices

Introduction of new devices

New wearables and connected devices are constantly being introduced to the market, bringing challenges and opportunities along with them. Seamless experiences are expected, which drive the need for modernized data architectures, personalized cross-channel marketing and strong security and privacy solutions.

Mergers and acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions

Finite bandwidth constraints, the high cost of capital, the need for differentiation and a desire for negotiating power against content providers are behind the constant discussion around mergers and acquisitions in the MSO/telecom space.

Knowledge is power (and profit)

Maximize your advertising revenue

Your content and platforms hold great possibilities for your company as well as your advertisers. Tap into that potential and understand the shifting demographics and behaviors of audiences, and identify the channels that are most effective for your advertisers. Then use those insights to create tailored ads and content that enhance personalization and optimize revenue in real-time.

Know your audience

Improve marketing performance when you know when and what to deliver based on systematic audience segmentation; learn personal information, generational viewing habits or device preferences. This type of holistic audience view can help you tailor your content and optimize it for the ideal format, identifying trends and enabling you to deliver relevant timely content that encourages engagement and loyalty.

Future-ready infrastructures

Insights from new sources

There is increased pressure within telco, cable and studios to gain access to advanced insights that are not readily available on traditional assets. This means creating new revenue sources in order to capitalize on the preferences of your audience. With AI, machine learning capabilities and information from digitally-connected audiences, we can help you create content and products that align with audience preferences and needs while strengthening your bottom line.

Preparing for growth

As communication, media and entertainment companies become more and more similar to technology companies, we will continue to see a rise in mergers and acquisitions as they all strive to stay ahead of the game. But as alliances are made and infrastructures change, your existing framework needs to be prepared for efficient data integration, to enable new product development and to support growing digital distribution.

personalization

Demands for personalization fuels transformation

AI and machine learning reshape traditional ads into personalized, targeted messages

When and where providers and marketers connect with consumers is changing; audiences are tech-savvy and their choices are driving the industry. Traditional ads still help consumers find new content, but millennials and Gen Zs engage more often with personalized, targeted, contextual messages. Getting a holistic view of your audience will help you shape those messages and deliver them at the right time, all with a seamless cross-device user experience.

In this short video, we look at some of the ways personalization, social media engagement and a big-picture view of your marketing eco-system can increase marketing effectiveness. Contact us to learn more ›
