Keeping pace with the shifting technology landscape has not traditionally been a priority for production, distribution, broadcast, retail, and print media companies. Yet, the dramatic and disruptive shift in consumer demand and delivery platforms over the past five years is driving record levels of demand for IT services including traditional utility platforms, advanced analytics, cross-brand mobile applications, differentiated infrastructure, and digital tools.

Leading media and entertainment CIOs are transforming IT delivery, operating capabilities, and funding models not simply to meet business demand, but also to enable innovation in the face of new and agile competitors.

Key discussion topics include:

  • the shift in capital deployment toward value-creating IT products, while still maintaining best-in-class cost and services portfolios
  • how leading technology organizations are collaborating with other functional leaders in finance, marketing, product development, and the supplier ecosystem to build demand-based budgets tied to business KPIs
  • the hurdles Time Warner’s and Sony’s CIOs have encountered, and the rewards they and their businesses can reap, during their transformational journeys.
