While the concept of big data is nothing new, the tools and technology and now in place for companies of all types and sizes to take full advantage. Enterprises in industries such as media, entertainment, and research and development have long been dealing with data in large volumes and unstructured formats - data that changes in near real time. However, extracting meaning from this data has been prohibitive, often requiring custom-built, expensive technology. Now, thanks to advancements in storage and analytics, all organizations can leverage big data to gain the insight needed to make their businesses more agile, innovative, and competitive.

Data is critical to the entertainment industry and not taking advantage of it can keep you from creating great experiences and delivering the right content to partners. And, more than that, it can make it hard for you to optimize operations, get insight into the content’s value and stay ahead of the many changes in how content is created, consumed and monetized.
However, even with the new digital tools in production, there are many challenges to making use of this data. The effort involved can take time and resources away from film production, introduce security risks, and leave key data inaccessible to those that need it.
In this paper, we review:
• The current state of production data
• The challenges the entertainment industry is facing in making use of data
• A new “Smart Content” approach that is helping industry pioneers to reduce complexity on the set, drive reporting, and enable them to stay ahead of market changes

It is critical for media and entertainment companies that they get the most out of the content they’ve invested in. But for many monetization of their assets is being inhibited by slow and expensive tape-based archival solutions (LTO) as well as first generation cloud storage like Amazon. Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, in partnership with Marquis Medway, is bringing media and entertainment companies a transformative new solution. Wasabi’s next generation cloud storage brings companies the speed they need to leverage their content, but costs far less than the traditional cloud storage options. Plus unlike Amazon and others, Wasabi does not charge you to retrieve your content—potentially a huge savings depending on how much you access it. To help you quickly and efficiently get assets from tape to cloud Wasabi has combined with Marquis Medway’s advanced workflow automation platform.

Redefining Markets: Insights from the Global C-suite Study – The CMO perspective
This report draws on input from the 5,247 C-suite executives (CxOs) who participated in our latest C-suite Study. We now have data from more than 28,000 interviews stretching back to 2003. Here, we focus on the perspectives of Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs).
"When the CMO Council recently asked more than 200 senior marketing decision makers how effectively they have aligned physical and digital experiences, half admitted that these integrated experiences were selective, at best. Yet it is alignment, consistency and connection that drive the foundational relationship between the brand and the buyer.
The CMO Council, in partnership with IBM, will host a one-hour interactive webcast with industry-leading media, entertainment and telecommunications marketers to discuss how audience insights across the digital and physical experience have been turned into action, allowing these brands to personalize and enrich each engagement.
Multiple case studies will also be discussed during the webcast that focus on the power of segmentation and innovations around cognitive computing. Speakers include Liz Miller, Senior Vice President of Marketing for the CMO Council; Jody Sarno, Dedicated Client Partner, Communications Industry for IBM; Chris Crayner, Ch

expenses (T&E) is crucial to establishing a healthy company culture.
Employees want to feel at ease laying out money for the company, feeling
confident they will get reimbursed quickly. Crafting a comprehensive T&E
policy and making sure it’s available to all employees is an important

to deliver premium guest service. The power of NOW puts instant
communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when
communication slows, business slows.
