The media industry is undergoing a rapid digital transformation. Pegasus InfoCorp helps media companies to embrace new opportunities and deliver groundbreaking digital experiences.
MEDIA IS CHANGING RAPIDLY
With digitalisation transforming the media industry, companies of all sizes must remain highly responsive while keeping a close eye on issues like data, content distribution and editorial planning. Meanwhile, ongoing developments in the digital arena and on social media create a requirement for even local outlets to be competitive on the global stage.
The digital transition in the media landscape is placing old ad-funded business models under threat, creating pressure to find suitable subscription-based solutions. With machine learning and artificial intelligence taking a front seat, there are also ethical concerns to address around transparency, privacy and user data, including GDPR.
CONSOLIDATION DRIVEN BY PLATFORM CAPABILITIES
Digital capabilities can be scaled without significant costs or delays and this will drive consolidation in the media industry. Media companies are undergoing a transformation from brand-centric models to a focus on platforms that can support multiple brands and act as hubs for connecting customers, data, content production and ad capabilities. Successful platforms will prioritise the end-to-end customer experience, from omnichannel, multimodal and personalised content consumption to seamless subscription purchases.
The importance of first-rate customer experiences in the consolidation race is also driving organisational change. Media companies that empower their teams and shift from a project focus to product thinking and an agile culture will be in a stronger position to uncover optimal solutions and cater for their customers – ultimately, the winners will be those who learn the fastest.
As the media sector continues to evolve, how can your business not only survive, but thrive? We are equipped and ready to guide you as you take the next steps on your digital transformation journey.

To give all our users an optimal experience, we believe we have to go personal – to leverage ML, AI and cloud technologies to deliver a personalised experience that adapts continuously to their usage.
