Monetizing Content in the API Economy
The democratization of content and the entry of social media and technology players have blurred the lines between media and entertainment market segments – creating a new ecosystem that will be driven by content-as-a-service (CaaS) models. By identifying the level at which content can be effectively packaged and sold, content providers – legacy and born-digital alike — can generate more value from their content and boost their returns.
Keep it Simple: Retaining Customers & Driving Growth
As our fourth annual survey of nearly 2,000 U.S. CSP customers confirmed, communications service providers face a tough playing field marked by high churn rates and encroaching competition from over-the-top (OTT) video services. In addition, many CSPs continue to invest in high-cost human support services, rather than lower-priced digital service channels – driving down revenue. Customers want their CSP to know who they are and anticipate their needs. Overall, quality and simplicity are paramount. From online ordering to mobile web apps, respondents told us they want simpler ways to choose, buy, pay for, and receive help with services such as high-speed Internet, pay TV, and phone.
