The rapidly changing digital marketplace is placing new demands on systems and processes. Many M&E companies are taking a top-to-bottom look at the infrastructure that supports both new and old business models. Many are finding that their organizations, processes and tools are not up to the task of supporting the new digital business models.

As business models evolve, M&E companies are rethinking how their organizations should be structured. Companies are not solely focused on how they do things, but what they do — activities that maintain their core products and brands.

Some companies are analyzing which in-house processes could be performed through outsourcing or other arrangements without impacting their core products and services.

Tailored product offerings, personalized experiences, and streamlined sales and service processes deliver what customers want and drive growth.
