Redefining the “media” company in a world of differences

Capturing attention and building value in today's global multi-speed media landscape has never been more challenging. New technology and the resulting shifts in user behaviour are blurring the lines across industries and sectors. For established companies and new entrants alike, one thing is clear – every company is a media company – or will be one soon.

Leaders in the entertainment and media (E&M) industry are at the forefront of this disruption – with dramatic slowdowns in some areas coexisting with spectacular expansion in other countries, regions and segments. To capture a rising share of revenues in such a diverse and complex environment, E&M companies must apply deep knowledge and insights into local markets to cut through the chaos and pinpoint specific pockets of growth and value.
