There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.

In the past, the production of professional quality corporate videos was delegated to outside agencies. Corporate business units hired marketing firms and video production houses because those outside agencies were the only ones with both the required expertise and the expensive equipment needed to generate high-quality results. Quantum teamed up with the Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) to survey their members—media production managers from leading enterprises—to learn more about the benefits and challenges of creating video in-house. Download the eBook, “The Changing Landscape of Corporate Video Production” to get the following questions answered and more: • Will in-house creative teams continue to ramp up in production? • What video formats are they currently producing and delivering? • How are they archiving their content? • What challenges are in-house teams facing as they generate more content? Today, that is changing. As the cost of video production technology drops, more corporations are recognizing the value of bringing production in-house. According to a recent report by Vidyard, 85% of businesses surveyed now have internal staff and resources producing videos in-house.

Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business.

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets. What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.
