Episode 36: Enabling a Cultural Shift in Media & Entertainment
Digital transformation – if you aren’t doing it, your talking about it and no where does it seem to be more impactful than the Media & Entertainment space. For those looking to uplevel their game from a creative, collaborative and technical perspective, our guest today, InterVision’s Head of Technology for Media & Entertainment, Ray Panahon, advises to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Ray acknowledges in many areas of the industry, there is very little margin for error and keeping the integrity of the schedule and creativity is paramount. Yet, in order to advance or at the very least avoid disruption, a little discomfort will be necessary, “I don’t think change is really recognized without a team being willing to trail blaze and take chances.” Listen now as Ray sits down with Jeff Ton, SVP of Product Development and Strategic Alliances to discuss the cultural shift required to transform in the Media & Entertainment industry today.
