Digital transformation

To what extent does the digital era and its new fast-paced tempo impact media organizations and their business model? Is the growth of digital activities dealing traditional print media a fatal blow? Will image overpower written journalism? These questions are easier to ask than to answer and the best growth paths may vary from one media to the other.

However, some key facts are clear for all:

  • the speed with which new ways of consuming content are spreading
  • the power and reach of new competitors
  • the way traditional models of sales and advertising are under threat

All of which requires thorough and disruptive thinking on the evolution of media organizations, from newsrooms to advertising sales houses.

At BearingPoint, we can help.
