The growing demand for digital in entertainment has accelerated the transformation of television and print media, changing consumer behavior, the advertisers’ approach toward their audiences and how media companies operate.
Media groups in general and publishing in specific are at the center of disruption, forced to reevaluate their own business models to be able to adapt to and to manage the digital revolution.
However, the digitalization and disruptive environment also offer new opportunities to those media and entertainment companies that are willing and capable to change and to develop new creative digital solutions for their audiences and subscribers and the advertisement customers in the industry.
Successful digital transformations result in digital organizations whose strategies, cultures, business models, processes, technologies and product and service offerings offer new, creative digital value for their customers.
