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.
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.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
