Product Synopsis

 

This report presents the findings from a survey of 100 media companies regarding their Information and Communications Technology (ICT) investment priorities. The survey investigates the core technologies which media companies are investing in, including the likes of enterprise applications, security, mobility, communications and collaboration, and Cloud Computing.

 

Introduction and Landscape

 

Why was the report written?

In order to provide deeper insights into media companies' ICT investment priorities and strategic objectives.

 

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

Kable's survey finds that a significant proportion of media companies have already invested in enterprise applications and these solutions are expected to receive higher investments in the next two years.

 

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

The demand for enterprise applications is expected to be primarily driven by media companies' need to implement innovative applications to enhance their competitiveness and improve their business operations.

 

What makes this report unique and essential to read?

Kable Global ICT Intelligence has invested significant resources in order to interview CIOs and IT managers about their IT investment priorities. Very few IT analyst houses will have interviewed 100+ ICT decision makers in the media industry in H2 2012.

Key Market Issues

 

The ever increasing number of cyber threats and network intrusions, steady rise in the size of mobile workforce, and their usage of mobile devices is forcing media companies to strengthen the security and privacy of their ICT environments. It is clear from the survey that X% of media companies already invested in security technologies.

 

The continuously evolving ICT infrastructure fuelled by modernisation initiatives, coupled with increasingly complex implementations, has made the work of CIOs and other IT managers in media companies more difficult. Consequently, to minimise the complexity of their ICT infrastructure, media companies are making significant investments in IT systems management.

 

The need to store the significant volumes of data generated by media companies on a day-to-day basis for further reference and analysis is set to drive spending in content management. Records management and document management are the most popular content management technologies amongst media companies, with penetration rates of X% each.

 

Media companies of all sizes have been witnessing a steady increase in the size of their mobile workforces and investing in mobility technologies to meet their requirements. Kable's survey shows that device management is the most widely used mobility technology with the highest current penetration rate of 71%.

 

Media companies have been implement virtualisation technologies at all levels (storage, server, network, and desktop) to reduce their infrastructure costs and increase their server efficiency. The fact that storage virtualization and server virtualization are on top of enterprises' priority lists reflects this trend.

 

Key Highlights

 

In the next two years, solutions such as CLM and BPM are expected to garner greater interest, as 58% and 54% of media companies are planning to invest in these applications respectively.

 

Kable's survey finds that the demand for data warehousing and analytical tools is expected to increase within media companies, with X% and X% of organisations respectively planning to invest here in the next two years.

 

In a content driven industry like the media, it is imperative that companies of all sizes invest in enterprise content management solutions. Document management and digital asset management (DAM), are set to attract significant attention from media companies, which is evident from the fact that X% and X% of respondents respectively, are planning investments in these areas in the next two years.

 

Kable's survey shows that web/video conferencing and unified communications (UC) occupy the top two positions on survey respondents' priority lists. While 73% of media companies have invested in web/video conferencing, 66% already have UC technology in place.

 

Cloud computing is gaining increasing traction amongst media companies, as organisations realise tits inherent benefits. According to Kable's survey, Software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) are the most popular cloud solutions, with the highest penetration rates of 53% each.

Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry. Resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, broke down what we've got to work with and discuss the benefits and pitfalls to discover how we can best use them to d...

In this Power Panel at 16th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the state of cloud computing today, and what enterprise IT professionals need to know about how the latest topics and trends affect t...
Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
