Whether you’re a buyer or supplier of media technology, if you want to understand the economics of cloud technology for M&E applications, this panel offers a unique opportunity to hear directly from the technical decision makers at some of the world’s largest and most-respected broadcasters.

Discussion topics will include economic considerations for migrating M&E workloads to the cloud, building cloud workflows, which processes to centralize or localize, streamlining media supply chains, use cases for artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI and ML), and best practice cloud deployment models.

“The Broadcaster C-Suite Part-2: Economics of Next Gen Media Architecture | Driving New Levels of Efficiency through Cloud, Supply Chain Management, AI & ML,” is just one of the sessions at the Devoncroft Summit. In total, more than 20 C-Level speakers will participate in the half-day program.

Considered by many to be one of the must-attend events ahead of the NAB Show, Devoncroft’s annual Las Vegas Summit has grown organically into one of the most important events of the year, as it continues to attract senior executives from across all parts of the media technology ecosystem, who come to network, collaborate with partners, and learn from industry thought leaders.

The full agenda includes panel discussions featuring thought leaders from across the entire media value chain.  C-level executives from leading broadcasters, media technology vendors, IT vendors, and cloud titans will offer candid assessments of the business impact of market developments on their business models, operational practices, and strategic decision-making.

In addition to executive panel discussions, the Summit will also provide an overview of the most up-to-date industry market research and analysis from Devoncroft Partners and its affiliates.  This includes preliminary findings from the 2019 Devoncroft Partners Big Broadcast Survey, the industry’s definitive demand-side market study, the Devoncroft M&E Cloud Adoption Index, and the Devoncroft M&E IP Adoption Index; along with an overview of the latest market sizing and forecasting figures from the widely referenced Global Market Valuation Report (GMVR) which is published through a 50-50 joint venture between Devoncroft and industry trade association IABM.

This event is designed for senior executives from media companies, technology suppliers, finance professionals, and industry strategists that want to gain a deeper understanding of the perspective of executive decision makers on business developments in the media technology sector. The Summit’s unique format makes it a thought-provoking kickoff to the 2019 NAB Show, as well as a great networking opportunity.

Now in its eighth year, the Summit remains the only conference where you’ll learn about the business and technology investment strategies of the world’s largest broadcasters, directly from the final decision makers.

With more than 850 registered delegates last year, the Devoncroft Executive Summit | Las Vegas is considered by many to be the one must-attend event in the calendar for both buyers and suppliers of media technology.
