Change driven by technology, innovation, and consumer demand is creating new opportunities in the industry

Business transformation has reached a level of maturity in the media industry, and executives view this period of rapid and dynamic change with optimism. Change - driven by technology, innovation, and consumer demand - is being viewed largely as a positive, and it’s creating new opportunities. Today, technology enables companies to change more efficiently, and though there is still inherent risk, it is greatly diminished. Companies that transform can take advantage of opportunities brought about by convergence. They need to adapt their business models to fight competitive threats and seize opportunities to grow.

KPMG is helping media organizations identify efficient and profitable options to deliver content, especially in light of new mobile platforms and increasing competition in user- generated media. Our clients in the broadcast, cable and cable network, music, film/studio, advertising, publishing, online, live entertainment and movie theater exhibition segments seek advice about Digital asset protection, Contract compliance, IT and finance transformation, Shared services strategies and Risk compliance issues.

KPMG’s Media and Entertainment group has a strong Audit and Tax presence in the industry, and is at the forefront of convergence with its digital services. KPMG is also focused on Advisory services to meet such industry challenges as: 

  • Customer growth options – new products and platforms
  • Privacy and data security issues
  • IT transformation and business process improvement
  • Energy management issues

  • Convergence of governance, risk and compliance
  • Digital transformation issues
  • M&A, including post-merger integration
