Change is inevitable, and media companies need to adapt, evolve, and innovate if they want to stay competitive and relevant. The reality is that change is often met with resistance, especially when it comes to major adaptions to ways of working and central infrastructure, such as moving operations to the cloud. This is typically true on all levels right through to the C-suite. However, there’s one magic word that tends to break down those barriers at board level and usher in transformation: savings. But words on their own are not enough, numbers speak louder.
Naturally, advocates of cloud services say that operating in the cloud reduces cost when compared to on-prem but concerns about controlling cloud costs and lack of visibility over cloud services persist. So how can media companies be sure that transition to the cloud will bring cost savings? In this blog, using some real-world examples, we’re going to explore how moving post-production systems to the cloud really impacts the bottom line.
