Content Supply Chain & Workflow Management Forum

Content Supply Chain & Workflow Management Forum

Featuring: Content Localisation Technology Showcase

2nd March 2017, Radisson Blu Edwardian, 9-11 Bloomsbury Street, London, WC1B 3QD

Efficient and secure content workflows are essential components of commercial success, as programme makers and distributors adapt to meet the challenges of doing business in the rapidly changing global entertainment sector.

Compressed post production and pre-release timelines, a highly fragmented and diverse distribution structure and the opening up of new global markets are all adding to the complexities that the content community has to deal with.

As a result, being able to quickly identify, locate and track the status of titles and effectively manage the distribution process are vital in helping to minimise costs and avoid unnecessary duplication of effort.

Advances in systems and technology are also a key factor in this, offering the potential opportunity to automate a number of elements and speed up the process while also contributing to improved decision making.

During the Content Supply Chain & Workflow Management Forum, delegates will be invited to participate in a series of informed presentations and panel sessions as well as open floor discussion on the following topic areas:

Maximizing Content Workflow Efficiencies 

  • Adapting to the cloud
  • Maintaining secure end to end distribution
  • The role of metadata in creating efficiencies

Keeping Track of Assets

  • Workflow visibility
  • Avails and content rights management

Contingency Planning

  • Preparing for and dealing with unexpected workflow interruptions.

Facing the Content Localisation Challenges

  • Innovative tools and workflow processes

Responding to the Wants and Needs of the Digital Retailer
