The latest insight from the media industry's business network
Integration and production transformation at Vice Media
DPP CTO Rowan de Pomerai's Making Integration Work series, published at the start of 2022, explored the integration opportunity, integration expertise, and how to deliver seamless integration.
And in episode 12 of the DPP podcast, Rowan talks to the team from Vice Media about the organisation's production transformation project, and the role of integrations in ensuring it delivered business value beyond its core aims of improving editorial and media workflows.
Are modern media organisations now tech companies?
The inaugural DPP European Broadcaster Summit brought together media companies and their key strategic suppliers to tackle some of the industry’s biggest challenges: how do we reap the benefits of cloud and metadata, to what extent are content providers unifying content workflows, and what is the future of IP distribution?
It also explored some fundamental questions about the 'what' and the 'how' of a modern broadcaster - should media companies buy or build their own technology, and are they actually now tech companies?
Signiant CEO, Margaret Craig, and ITV Director of Business Transformation for Content, Supply and Distribution, Zoe Carter, joined Mark and Rowan to digest these big questions and other key takeaways from the European Broadcaster Summit during episode 11 of the DPP podcast.
Tracking trends and betting on innovation projects
The DPP’s work in 2022 has so far been forward looking; what are the technology and consumer trends affecting media companies, and what are the bold predictions DPP members expect to happen in the next 12 months?
Dow Jones' Elena Corchero, previously Director of Emerging Technology at NewsCorp, joins the podcast to discuss how she keeps on top of disruptive new trends. Which technology innovations should media companies be investing and experimenting with? What are good measures for ROI? And what did Mark and Rowan learn on their recent trip to California?
Technology Transformation Meets Workforce Transformation
As we reflect on The Leaders' Briefing 2021, we ask... Why is Zoe Carter of ITV feeling uncomfortable? What did Dalet's Ewan Johnston - and the supplier community at large - learn from hearing their customers' top priorities? And how is the DPP's new Editorial Director coping working alongside Mark and Rowan?
Creating new opportunities with cloud technology
A year ago, Signiant CEO Margaret Craig wrote 'The Signiant SaaS Manifesto' to offer her perspectives on how cloud technology has created massive efficiencies and new opportunities across the media supply chain.
The manifesto has now been made available for everyone to download to coincide with the DPP's 2021 Leaders' Briefing. In episode 8 of the DPP podcast, Mark invites Margaret to shed light on this fascinating paper.
Cloud adoption and disrupted relationships
Almost every media company in the world has significant portions of its operations in the cloud. Some are based entirely there, yet still, we know that different parts of the industry are at different levels of cloud maturity.
In episode 7 of the DPP podcast, Mark and Rowan summarise the key findings from the DPP's 'The Cloud for Media' series, which explored the rate of cloud adoption across four different parts of the media value chain.
