Cloud-based technologies are causing disruptive innovations in digital media, enabling new possibilities and efficiencies in content acquisition, management and distribution. These shifts in technology are bringing new solutions to the entertainment industry, along with opportunities to scale your service delivery capacity, simplify management and security, decrease costs, and increase agility. According to PwC, a major challenge for media and entertainment businesses is learning how to "manage new work-streams and control how they keep content secure, while making it available to every contributor who needs it and every user who has the right to see it. All this points to cloud technology."
