All native and ‘transitioning’ media companies are focusing heavily on content to save existing businesses, or building new business models, or both. Television broadcasters, wary of the growing cord-cutting, are spending large sums on premium content. In 2017, the top four media companies spent more than USD 34 billion on original and acquired non-sports programming. Pure-play OTT providers have, on the other hand, bet big on content to shore up on subscribers. Netflix alone spent more than USD 6 billion on content last year, while spend was USD 7 billion for Amazon and Hulu combined. Transitioning media companies, such as telecom and technology companies that are moving towards being a media company, are also allocating sizable funds for content in their quest to explore supplementary businesses, by boosting customer engagement on their platforms. Apple and Facebook have started creating their own original content, and spend is only going to expand further.

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets.
What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.
In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled. For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing.

To meet future demands, businesses need to take advantage of multicloud technology without replacing your current storage, yet ensure that it is fast, cost-efficient, scalable, and modern.
The right storage solution can help businesses to respond rapidly, expand capacity, and lower costs. This infographic looks at how businesses can modernise their infrastructure by investing in the next generation of IBM Storwize V7000, which is easy to scale, deploys faster and accelerates business execution with end-to-end NVMe.
Across industries, customers today wield more power and greater choice than ever before – a power that they exercise by shifting their attention and spending (across multiple channels/devices in near-real time) from provider to provider. In this environment of hyper-connectedness and diminishing customer loyalty and fleeting human attention spans, the battle for holding customer interest and engaging him/her meaningfully requires, first and foremost, an everlasting commitment to "relevance. "Being relevant and demand-driven is of paramount importance to the media industry, but it is no less important to any industry that operates in a B2C world. However, adapting to the ever-rising expectations and changing buying behaviors of customers is becoming a Herculean task, requiring both business and technology transformation.
While many organizations have acknowledged the importance of digitally transforming their businesses and processes to deliver speed and agility, most are just starting their cloud journey.
Cloud-in-a-Box delivers an enterprise cloud platform with a mix of on- and off-premises private cloud and public cloud, with orchestration between them. This will provide the organization with the ability to avoid vendor lock-in, find the optimal cloud services for a particular business or technical need, and increase redundancy.
Download IDC Infobrief on “Cloud-in-a-Box” to understand:
• How you can deliver the different functions of a data center and meet business requirements by deploying a “Cloud-in-a-Box.”
• Understand how industries such as financial services, manufacturing and healthcare can benefit from “Cloud-in-a-Box” technology.
• Self-discovery questions and focus areas that every organization needs to go through for successful cloud deployment.
The framework presented here is a way to avoid data dysfunction via a coordinated and well-planned governance initiative. These initiatives require two elements related to the creation and management of data:
• The business inputs to data strategy decisions via a policy
• The technology levers needed to monitor production data
based on the policies.
Collectively, data governance artifacts (policies, guiding principles and operating procedures) give notice to all stakeholders and let them know, “We value our data as an asset in this organization, and this is how we manage it.”
