NAB Show - Voice of the Customer Super Sunday Session - Creative Collaboration the only way forward

8th April 2018

IABM's NAB Show Voice of the Customer Super Sunday Session - Creative Collaboration – the only way forward

Sunday April 8th, 2pm - 4pm - Room N239/N241 LVCC 

At this time of transformational change, the old “arms’ length” seller-buyer model is no longer tenable. Creative collaboration - solving problems and building solutions together - has become the only way forward; the future of technology vendors is inextricably bound up with the challenges broadcasters and media companies face.

According to IABM’s latest research, 35% of end-users are now building some of their own systems using in-house software skills and microservices. The vast majority still prefer best-of-breed solutions, and are sharing their roadmaps to enable vendors to work collaboratively with them to achieve the solution they need; creative collaboration is the answer. “Our business is critical to yours, and your business is critical to ours” is the new paradigm.

IABM is committed to facilitating this creative collaboration between technology vendors and their broadcast and media customers. This session will provide a unique platform to explore how we can better navigate industry transformation together in a period of transition to new business and technical models.

We will be joined by a panel of influential thought leaders from the pinnacle of the broadcast and media technology industry to let us into the secrets of successful creative collaboration. And we’ll have real-life case studies, exploring how working together collaboratively offers both sides of the industry a better way forward.

This is a must-attend session on the eve of NAB Show where technology suppliers and their customers come together to discuss and define the future of our industry. As well as arming delegates with the insights they need to drive their business forward, it also offers a unique networking opportunity to make new contacts and strengthen relationships.
