Crisis has always been a powerful catalyst for social change and there no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic is proving the same. As we adapt to the new normal the popularity of streaming services has grown dramatically as isolation creates more free time. Launched in November 2019, Disney+ recently announced that they have surpassed 50 million paying subscribers.
Along with that rise there’s been a similar rise in a whole range of cyber security threats on these streaming services. In fact, one of the key focus of Privacy Awareness Week is the importance of safeguarding personal information as we spend more time online.
We were joined by our 3 BaM Award Store category finalists for this panel discussion.
This panel of supply chain experts examine the state of business, operational and technical risk at media companies. With the pandemic accelerating established technology transitions such as the move to virtualized infrastructures, have media companies effectively managed the security risks that this transition implies. And what about the increasing use of data to drive media operations, will that pose new challenges that media professionals have not been accustomed to deal with? This session is laser focused on every type of risk encountered by media companies in today’s volatile media world. It is an ideal session for media technology professionals wanting to grow their awareness of new types of risks that could radically affect their work as well as how to manage them effectively.
This session features a panel who examine suppliers’ transition to as-a-service models. The expedited move to remote working caused by the pandemic has forced technology suppliers in the media industry to accelerate their transition from large and infrequent monetary inflows to smaller and more continuous cash streams. At the same time, the pandemic has also forced suppliers to prop up virtual and continuous engagement with their customers due to the absence of trade shows. What are the major implications of this for technology providers in the media industry? How do you plan, develop and price the new as-a-service offerings? How do you forecast revenue streams in a time of unprecedented change? We try to answer these questions with a panel of leaders at major technology suppliers in our industry who explore the challenges and benefits of as-a-service models, and how to make it work.
