BIA/Kelsey Forecasts Local Ad Spending on Broadcast to Reach $34.3B in 2014

BIA/Kelsey introduces 'Digital Strategies for Broadcasting,' an advisory service for media and technology companies engaged in local broadcasting's transition to multiplatform strategies

CHANTILLY, Va., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- BIA/Kelsey (www.bia.com and www.kelseygroup.com) forecasts local advertising revenues for television and radio to reach $34.3 billion in 2014, up from $29.9 billion in 2009, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.8 percent. Digital revenues for these media are expected to grow at a 17.8 percent CAGR during the same period, illustrating the continued shift toward digital media. The five-year outlook for local broadcast media is detailed in BIA/Kelsey's 2010 U.S. Local Media Annual Forecast (2009-2014), which is available to clients of the firm's new advisory service, Digital Strategies for Broadcasting (DSB). DSB provides research and analysis on how the changing local media landscape will affect the broadcaster community and its supporting network of vendors and technology providers.

"Broadcasters must evolve to participate in more areas of the media ecosystem," said Rick Ducey, BIA/Kelsey's chief strategy officer and program director, Digital Strategies for Broadcasting. "This means developing the right multiplatform and multiple revenue stream strategies, which in turn requires new workflow, partnerships, business models and resources. The mission of DSB is to provide the strategic guidance and market intelligence to the media and technology companies that can help broadcasters successfully transform."

DSB clients are companies with a stake in the future of the local broadcast business, including broadcast groups, local TV and radio stations, digital advertising technology and service providers, broadcast sector-focused financial institutions and investment firms, suppliers and advisors, advertising agencies, and trade associations.

"We already provide the most complete view available of local media through our research and forecasts, included in 'Investing in Television(TM),' 'Investing in Radio(TM)' and Media Access Pro(TM), as well as our existing advisory services focused on interactive local media, Yellow Pages and directories, mobile local media and online marketplaces," said Neal Polachek, president, BIA/Kelsey. "The addition of the DSB advisory service, which offers access to the top broadcast and digital media analysts in the business, is a natural extension of our coverage and a powerful resource for our clients."

In addition to BIA/Kelsey's annual forecast, clients of Digital Strategies for Broadcasting have access to the firm's team of knowledgeable analysts, as well as informative and timely reports covering the subjects that are pertinent to the local broadcast community. Upcoming report topics include:

ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance.

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
"Since we launched LinuxONE we learned a lot from our customers. More than anything what they responded to were some very unique security capabilities that we have," explained Mark Figley, Director of LinuxONE Offerings at IBM, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
