The future of creative development is increasingly data-driven, platform dependent, and medium-agnostic. Creative units are increasingly modular and customizable. The systems enabling them all require deep data standards and water-tight business processes to be effective. And all these requirements need to be anticipated up front, before Production even begins, for the entire ecosystem to work as required. The reason is simple: Once content is made, it has to be managed. How well it is managed will determine the media that can display it. And that display media increasingly throw off data that informs the original content so it can iterate and become better. That's the modern media reality; and the resulting complexity increases every year. The only way to truly exploit that complexity for the content owner, is a broad, OPERATIONALLY STRATEGIC approach to the making and management of ALL the content it creates, regardless of discipline, including Production Management, Asset Management, Business Affairs, and Creative Operations, including the enabling technologies, as a single, co-dependent, ecosystem. This is what I can do – and have done – on a truly global scale, for any company truly interested in digitally transforming their marketing and production practices.
