Panel Discussion Topic: “Show us the money – show us the stats”

The age of interactive and converged media has presented the content industries with hitherto undreamed of levels of audience understanding. Or at least that’s been the promise. In truth, content owners are now all too often presented with an even more fragmented intel and audit trail than ever. This panel, featuring technologists and content owners and creators will explore the ways in which new technologies can help the industry know more – and in more detail – about the consumption, use, and re-use of content and services and ask: how can increased understanding help to maximise revenue?
