Deloitte’s 2019 Media & Entertainment Industry Outlook report indicated a time of exciting change as new trends and technologies drive innovation, disruption, and opportunities for growth in media and entertainment. From a technology standpoint, 2019 appeared to be the year that “voice” will truly come to the fore. Adoption and usage of voice-enabled digital assistants is growing, indicating that voice could be the next big thing—after touch—in human-computer interaction.
Considering the level of transformation media and entertainment industry and the companies are expecting to drive, an IT service provider like InterVision has to work on upgrading its solutions up to the expectations of its current and potential clients. Ray’s role will hence be critical for InterVision’s growth, especially for the media & entertainment vertical.
