CIO CME Summit

A forum for IT innovators in communications, media and entertainment

The media and entertainment industry is currently facing a radical transformation. CIOs and technology executives are trying to respond to increased customer demands for additional viewing options, including online and mobile distribution channels, as well as demands for industry innovation that many cable, gaming, and media and entertainment companies are currently unable to satisfy.

The demand for online content is apparent, but how to monetize this content and deliver rich media are other issues altogether. As IT departments work to deliver their content via the Web and mobile devices, they must also figure out how to create new revenue streams without losing loyal viewers, align technology with current business transformations and achieve both goals without increases in budget or staff.

The CIO CME Summit is an opportunity for attending media and entertainment executives to discuss these IT issues and explore the technology solutions that can help transform their organizations. The technology event's agenda creates opportunities for networking and interaction through roundtables, think tanks and analyst Q&A sessions.

Dealing with Big Data Every day, trillions of bytes of data are generated by organizations and individuals around the world. Companies know there are valuable insights buried within those mountains of bits—and are looking to their CIOs to find ways to use them. This paper shares Pythian’s practical perspective on how to approach the big data challenge organizationally and technically, and now to sift information of value out of the ever-growing background of digital noise.

Beyond Relational: Reimagine Your Data with Enterprise NoSQL With the growing volumes of unstructured and multi-structured data flooding into our data centers, the relational databases that enterprises have relied on for the last 40-years are now too limiting and inflexible. New-generation NoSQL (“Not Only SQL”) databases have gained popularity because they are ideally suited to deal with the volume, velocity, and variety of data that businesses and governments handle today. A paradigm shift in database technology is occurring in which organizations are rethinking what they can do with their most important asset: data. MarkLogic is at the forefront of this shift, having the only NoSQL database that is truly enterprise ready.

Exchange Insights: What’s your next move? It’s not always easy to make the right choices with regard to your messaging environment. A few years back the options were limited, however today you can choose a variety of ways to implement Exchange. There is still the legacy option to stay on-premise. Hosted Exchange has existed in various forms for a while, whether with a dedicated virtual server or a basic multi-tenant hosted solution that you tap into with propriety tools to manage end-users. Microsoft’s Exchange Online (part of Office 365) is a cost-effective way to subscribe your messaging. And a hybrid approach that combines parts of these elements is where many folks are finding their comfort level and trying new things.

The New Digital Supply Chain To meet the demands of the diverse and complex digital market place, media and entertainment companies are streamlining digital servicing and building a new generation of digital supply chain applications using a Big Data approach to collect and manage digital products and assets. This new generation of applications provides users with the complete picture of all digital products across the organization, while creating workflow applications that reduce the effort of delivering digital products, power new innovative viewing experiences and provide data to report on and analyze utilization and efficiency.
