Mediabase for Networks

Mediabase for Networks TM delivers insights needed to identify these evolving revenue opportunities.


An Overview:

Media executives need cross-platform analysis of their revenue and inventory in order to optimize the complexities in emerging business models. Media operational systems are designed to create and manage the diverse transactional information that drive departmental workflows. They were never designed to provide the enterprise‑wide, actionable business analytics that executives need to make strategic decisions. Their reports are often slow to generate and hard to change without disrupting key business activities.

As a result, consolidating inter-departmental information is typically managed by aggregating data manually with spreadsheets.
