“The House of Cards “ and the digital media company powered by the cloud

Times are exciting and challenging for the media industry with consumers expecting personalized content to be delivered to their devices anywhere, any time. Evidenced by the recent foray of Netflix into content creation with “The House of Cards”, content is still king but can come from unexpected sources. At the film festival in Cannes this month, a controversial film centered on ex head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss Kahn, “Welcome in New York” starring Gérard Dépardieu has been released only to video on demand and not through traditional cinema chains.

SAP Media will be showcasing how we can assist media companies in meeting consumers’ expectations by harnessing big data for greater insights into audience behavior and leveraging business processes in the cloud to favor innovation, enjoy greater flexibility and drive out operational costs.

Check out this video for highlights of recent innovations at SAP Media.

What’s the Media story in the cloud?

The recently announced reseller partnership with Adobe  and integration with hybris and HANA will enable marketers to personalize consumers’ shopping experience from brand engagement and marketing to immersive omni-channel shopping experiences. On-line advertising in the cloud is enabled by our partner Mediaspectrum with their AdWatch solution. Omni-channel solutions from hybris are enabling media companies to monetize content and create perpetual relationships with readers.

Retaining talented staff so crucial to media content creation is supported by talent management solutions from SuccessFactors and managing a contingent workforce in the cloud is easy with solutions from Fieldglass, recently acquired by SAP.

Cloud enabled procurement processes and access to the largest business network in the world from ARIBA are helping media companies gain efficiency and demonstrable cost savings.

All of these innovative solutions will be on show at SAPPHIRE NOW, come visit us in the Industries Campus and ask for a demo at our expert table.
