How PwC has enabled a Business and Technology Transformation for a television studio

Vewers are consuming content at a faster rate, switching across multiple providers and viewing media through an array of different delivery options.  A true content revolution is challenging the way traditional networks think, and requiring them to evolve with industry demands. Efficient financial systems and processes are a must. Simply put, as more content becomes available to end consumers, companies need to understand what the financial impact is for that data. PwC’s global E&M practice was able to help tackle these challenges for a television production company to build a scalable IT structure and Oracle Cloud application model, obtaining greater visibility and insight into current and forecasted financials.
