Technology Talent Australia

Media & Communications

The media and telecommunications industries are anything but static – both sectors are bursting with life. In mass media, there’s a voracious hunger for content, while consumption habits continue to change. Similarly, in telecommunications, there’s soaring demand for online services amidst a swiftly evolving business landscape, where digital transformation is on everyone’s agenda.

Probably one of the biggest recent shifts in media is the fall in advertising and marketing spend. This is a result of companies having less money available or being unable to operate due to COVID-19 restrictions. There’s also the phenomenon of subscription-based, ad-free media channels, which effectively lock out advertisers.

The challenges for the telecommunications sector are somewhat different. Here, there’s an urgent need to accelerate 5G and IoT capabilities. The sector is also under pressure to prioritise user-centric networks that deliver seamlessly connected omnichannel communications.

In the media industry, technologies such as data analytics, with its credible data offerings, are a way to entice advertisers back – in both mass and niche markets. Data insights can also be applied to content production, as artificial intelligence. AI can help automate a variety of procedures in the creation of video, film and music. AI also has applications in optimising search algorithms, to match consumers with relevant content.
