Media & Entertainment

Making the right moves – quickly.

In no other sector is digital disruption having more of an impact that in Media & Entertainment.


Traditional advertising revenues are dwindling as fragmentation of media changes the landscape; traditional media ownership models (both physical purchase and digital download) are being rapidly replaced by subscription and streaming; and the lines historically separating publishing, gaming and technology companies are starting to blur.  

Customer expectations of their digital experience - and of where and how they wish to consume their media and entertainment – are evolving at breakneck speed.

All of this is causing a greater pace of change in the Media & Entertainment sector than ever before. Digital technology is fast moving from supporting the business to being the business, mergers and acquisitions are rife, and only the most competitive and adaptable businesses will survive. 

The only certainty is that nothing is standing still. If you’re in this sector, transformational change is becoming a way of life rather than a one-off.

Media & Entertainment

“The pace of change in Media and Entertainment is breath taking – which brings both challenge and opportunity. Fragmentation of media continues to change the landscape fundamentally: in the USA just 5 years ago the biggest TV shows would reach around 15% of households, but the top show of 2016 reached just 5%. Nowhere is the digital transformation having more impact – and it’s causing fundamental change not only to products and services, but also to payment models and back office functions. With our deep experience of transforming the Media and Entertainment sector, we can help you set the strategy and deliver the change you need to succeed.”

Our Experience

We have worked on a number of key projects in the media and entertainment sector. Here are just a few examples of current and recent work:

  • We helped a leading global media conglomerate define and mobile Finance Transformation. 
  • We helped a marketing implementation services company, part of a major global media group, deliver a new Cloud-based media asset management, collaboration and workflow platform to one of the world’s largest financial services organisations.
  • We helped a major, global publishing and financial information firm (based in New York)  define and mobilise their Finance Transformation.  
  • We were further engaged by the same major, global publishing and financial information firm (based in New York) to help them work out their strategy for Customer Billing systems.
  • We helped two major, global media and telecommunications companies (based in the US) with a Post-merger integration HR Project. 
  • We helped a leading betting and gaming provider (with both a substantial ‘Bricks and Mortar’ and On-Line presence) define their IT Strategy and then mobilise their IT Transformation to deliver that. 

The main benefit for me was in getting control of a project that (initially) had no clear scope, governance, timing, budget or plan. A highly successful engagement and one that sets a clear model, and standard, for how we run projects in the future.

“Their professionalism was top notch. I've gone through a number of these types of projects in my career and this one superseded all. High calibre people with the experience and intelligence to get to the crux of the issue”
VP Support Services (Finance & IT)

“Berkeley were able to effectively navigate complex subject matter and align varied and disparate stakeholders into a cohesive and clear plan.  The calibre and capability of Berkeley staff remains consistently high. We need more thought leadership like this!”
