In the past, the production of professional quality corporate videos was delegated to outside agencies. Corporate business units hired marketing firms and video production houses because those outside agencies were the only ones with both the required expertise and the expensive equipment needed to generate high-quality results.
Quantum teamed up with the Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) to survey their members—media production managers from leading enterprises—to learn more about the benefits and challenges of creating video in-house.
Download the eBook, “The Changing Landscape of Corporate Video Production” to get the following questions answered and more:
• Will in-house creative teams continue to ramp up in production?
• What video formats are they currently producing and delivering?
• How are they archiving their content?
• What challenges are in-house teams facing as they generate more content?
Today, that is changing. As the cost of video production technology drops, more corporations are recognizing the value of bringing production in-house. According to a recent report by Vidyard, 85% of businesses surveyed now have internal staff and resources producing videos in-house.
Complexity, globalization and digitalization are just some of the elements at play in the risk landscape—and data is becoming a core part of understanding and navigating risk.
How do modern finance leaders view, navigate and manage enterprise risk with data? Dun & Bradstreet surveyed global finance leaders across industries and business types. Here are the top trends that emerged from the study:
1. The Enterprise Risk & Strategy Disconnect—Finance leaders are using data and managing risk programs, but over 65% of finance leaders say there’s missing link between risk and strategy.
2. The Risks of the Use and Misuse of Data—Up to 50% of the data used to manage modern risk is disconnected. Only 15% of leaders are confident about the quality of their data.
3. Risky Relationships—Only 20% of finance leaders say the data they use to manage risk is fully integrated and shared.

L’infrastructure Cloud, vous avez dû vous y mettre au début en prenant beaucoup de précaution… Vous avez probablement limité votre périmètre à un provisionnement rapide ou à une diminution des coûts matériels ou opérationnels.
Mais comment résister aux avantages de cette technologie ? Le cloud continue d’évoluer et de gagner en crédibilité dans tous les secteurs d’activité. Aujourd’hui, nous attendons de tous les systèmes d’entreprise qu’ils intègrent les avantages du cloud.
All’inizio, probabilmente avrai scelto di adottare l’infrastruttura cloud con una certa prudenza, limitandoti a un approvvigionamento rapido o alla riduzione dei costi operativi o delle macchine.
Ma come resistere ai vantaggi di questo nuovo modo di fruire della tecnologia? Il cloud continua a evolvere e a conquistare credibilità in tutti i settori. Oggi, ci aspettiamo che ogni sistema aziendale possa beneficiare dei vantaggi del cloud.
I progressi nel campo digitale rivoluzionano in profondità il nostro modo di lavorare, introducendo innovazioni nei nostri uffici praticamente ogni giorno. Queste tecnologie hanno alzato il livello delle aspettative, costringendo le aziende a operare con un'agilità senza precedenti.
Questi cambiamenti sono grandi opportunità, ma purtroppo ci imbattiamo anche in nuovi ostacoli che possono intralciare la nostra marcia verso il successo, come la necessità di innovare rapidamente, di minimizzare i costi e di reagire prontamente alle pressioni della concorrenza.
La tecnologia IaaS, un tempo vista con scetticismo da molti responsabili IT, viene oggi adottata da molte aziende, che trasferiscono sul cloud i workload e accantonano l’architettura locale che prima ritenevano indispensabile.
Nonostante i vantaggi in termini di prestazioni, flessibilità e opportunità di innovazione sperimentati dagli utenti che già hanno adottato questa tecnologia, alcune aziende ritardano la migrazione per paura del cambiamento.
Les avancées du numérique révolutionnent la manière dont nous travaillons, en apportant des innovations de façon permanente dans notre quotidien de travail. Ces technologies très prisées ont renforcé les attentes, obligeant les organisations à développer l'agilité métier à des niveaux sans précédent.
Même si les opportunités annoncées sont prometteuses, nous sommes confrontés à de nouveaux freins qui peuvent faire obstacle à la réussite, comme la nécessité d'innover rapidement, de minimiser les coûts et de répondre rapidement aux pressions exercées par la concurrence.
Pour réussir dans le contexte concurrentiel actuel, les entreprises doivent se liberer des limites inhérentes à leurs infrastructures informatiques existantes. L’époque de l’achat de matériel et de la gestion d’énormes centres de données pour faire fonctionner les systèmes informatiques est en train de prendre fin. La gestion et la maintenance des infrastructures sont tout simplement trop coûteuses.
Digital developments are forever shaping the way we work, bringing new innovations through our office doors almost every day. These high-demand technologies have increased expectations, with organizations now having to drive business agility at unprecedented levels.
Although we’re presented with enormous opportunity, we also face new obstacles that can block the path to success; obstacles such as the need to innovate quickly, keep costs down, and actively respond to competitive pressures.
To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive.
Explanation of the Oracle IaaS solutions and cases studies.
IT departments are under constant pressure to do more with less. Now, as well as keeping the lights on, they are expected to deliver projects that create real business value. As more businesses use digital technologies to disrupt their markets, this pressure is intensifying.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is evolving against this background. Initially, it caught CIOs’ attention because it helped them cut costs. Today, IaaS underpins organizations’ agility in the face of disruption and drives innovation-led growth.
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction.
But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.
