The explosive proliferation of technology creates both opportunities and challenges for media and entertainment (M&E) companies.
On the opportunity side, they have a variety of new channels for creating and distributing content. But they face challenges in maintaining and rebuilding customer relationships that have been fragmented by an unending array of platforms and devices.

In the past, it would take two or three years for a new version of a product to appear on the market. Today, consumers expect the release of a new version within a year.

For those who can keep up in the media and entertainment (M&E) industry, opportunities abound. Those who can't keep pace could quickly become obsolete.
