Media consulting

We help media and entertainment businesses outmaneuver uncertainty. With end-to-end transformation expertise, our clients emerge stronger and grow.

Resilience. Relevance. Agility.

The traditional media industry (video broadcasters, programmers, studios) is struggling to redefine its place in the world. The COVID-19 pandemic prompted more people to seek new forms of home entertainment, creating an opportunity for platforms and new video-streaming entrants to move in.

The linear media production, advertising and distribution model is gone, and only those willing to transform their business model are likely to survive. Successful media companies have already transformed to support new value chains. Such a shift requires scaled-up production and delivery operations and a willingness to field-test new delivery models.

Differentiation and relevance are key. But the time to act is now. Powered by new value plays, dynamic products and services and an agile business model, traditional media companies can redefine their place in the market landscape as relevant, profitable players. Are you ready to start the evolution towards your new future?

What we think

The value of a platform in media & entertainment

In 2019, for the first time, consumers spent more time on digital media than on any other format. To compete, and win, in this massively disrupted landscape, traditional media and entertainment businesses need to transform on three critical fronts:

Establishing direct customer channels

Develop a direct relationship with end customers, as traditional wholesalers are now positioned to become retailers through platform enablement.

Becoming an intelligent enterprise

Shift value to creators based on customer engagement and become a more intelligent enterprise to extend customer lifetime value.

Expanding monetization

Expand monetization beyond subscription, taking into account the long-tail opportunity of the digital economy as a lever for unleashing trapped value.
