Creator Day Agenda

A Tale of Two Sectors: How News & Sports are Navigating the Storm

How did they do it? Sectors such as sports and news were disrupted by pandemic-induced social distancing and had to swiftly adapt their workflows. This session explores the changes undergone by two major live sectors in 2020 and how these may produce long-standing innovations.

Discussing Serendipity: Enabling Creative Collaboration Remotely

Serendipitous innovation is often defined as innovation happened by accident and, most likely, through social interaction. Many have argued that this driving force for creativity may be hard to replicate remotely as content creators worldwide increasingly rely on virtual tools to collaborate with colleagues. If we can't replicate it, how can media and technology companies maximize creativity in their collaborative efforts?

At their Convenience: Crafting Digital Experiences

Consumer is king. Consumer experiences have taken a front seat in recent years as media companies have moved to direct-to-consumer models. This session explores the interfaces and experiences that consumers are looking for, their relationship with quality and their viewing habits in a socially distanced world.

Architect Day Agenda

A Tale of Two Sectors: Designing Holistic Supply Chains

Media companies managing both linear and streaming platforms, increasingly need to manage their media factories holistically. This session will examine the work done by media companies on designing holistic supply chains.

Technical Localization: Designing Global Supply Chains

As consolidation proliferates, creating global media platforms, the importance of effectively managing geographically distributed supply chains is significantly increasing. This session will explore the challenges of localizing technology operations at two global media companies.

Discussing Risk: Designing Resilient Supply Chains

While media companies progressed their transition to IP-based and virtualized supply chains, the pandemic pushed operational volatility to an extreme. Supply chain experts will explore how media companies can best manage risk in the remote age.

Executive Day Agenda

A Tale of Two Sectors: SVOD & AVOD Economics

Media companies moving to direct-to-consumer platforms are increasingly focusing on digital monetization models funded through subscriptions and/or advertising revenues. This session explores the challenges of monetizing digital consumers in the streaming world.

Discussing Transformation: As-a-Service Economics

The pandemic has accelerated the move to as-a-service business models built around continuous technical delivery, customer engagement, and monetary inflows. This session explores the supply-side benefits and challenges of moving to as-a-service business models.

Head in the Clouds: Flexible Development & Payment Models

The pandemic has accelerated the move to cloud-based operational models in the media industry out of pure necessity. At the same time, media companies have invested more in building their own in-house technology platforms. However, both cloud and development economic models often remain costly and complex for media companies to deploy. This session explores the challenges of cloud and development economics
