Why Media & Publishing?

With over two billion smartphone users and one billion tablet users worldwide, the way we consume media has changed rapidly. The growth in digital media consumption is up 400% for the smartphone and 1700% for the tablet.

And according to Pew and comScore data, 39 of the top 50 digital news websites have more traffic coming from the mobile than from the desktop. The markets are changing, with big challenges and opportunities ahead.

Business Model

Mobile and social are radically changing how readers consume digital content. This changes everything, from how content gets presented, to the tools used to grow an audience, and even how advertising is sold.

Consumer Experience

Providing superb and relevant consumer experiences that include impactful advertising has always been difficult, but today the challenge is bigger than ever before. Especially in the times when privacy is always a huge concern on the mind of the consumer.


The advertising industry is rapidly evolving, and there are many new monetization options available. Leveraging greater value out of inventory and audiences is another pressing challenge for publishers to wrestle with.

The Opportunity Ahead

Naturally, the entire industry is changing dramatically, with losers and winners becoming clear in the coming years. This creates a pressure to come up with new ways to reach and engage the audience, while finding the right balance between monetization and user experience.

Staying at the forefront of the innovation is no longer an option but clearly a strategy to win. Or as Stewart Brand famously pointed out: “Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.”
