Insights from a few industry leaders in the Accelerating Digital Innovation in Media and Entertainment eBook:
Data plays a huge part in decision making, whether it’s about what products to create, how to optimise our products, and how to win in the marketplace. We use a combination of data and research to inform decisions. It’s fundamental.
Head of Product, Digital Preschool, Entertainment One
The data drives the insight as to why our customers consume what they’re interested in, so that is key for us. It will be a vital part of our strategy across the coming years.
Chief Product and Customer Officer, Reach PLC
Everything is going to be much more personalised and targeted in the future. Discoverability is the biggest challenge of the OTT industry. The more services that come out, the more people don’t know what to watch. All of that will have to be very personalised based on data and that is why there’s definitely going to be the need to collect lots of it.
