Your audience has a love-hate attitude to personalisation. Hyper-relevant media content tailored specifically to their needs: this is what keeps your viewers and readers coming back for more.

But privacy is now front page news – and more than ever, consumers need assurances that their data will be protected.

Meanwhile, from niche publishing houses to gaming studios, it has never been easier for creators to get their content in front of precisely the right audiences via multiple platforms.

But smart distribution demands detailed knowledge of the customer; something that requires granular data – and often phenomenal amounts of it.

An increase in data, means an increase in risk

Keeping this ever-growing stockpile of data Secure, Preserved and Available is vital – not just for on-demand distribution – but also for maintaining the trust of your audience.

Through tailored data protection, Silverstring delivers peace of mind in the face of these challenges. We aim to ensure you are fully equipped to deliver the secure yet ‘always-on’ service your audience now demands.

A challenging media landscape

From ‘content scarcity’ to ‘content everywhere’

As Deloitte highlighted recently, whereas in the past, media players “thrived through content scarcity” (available only via specific outlets at specific times), the reverse is now true. In short, platform downtime is deadly – at any time. And now that distribution is becoming increasingly personalised, data non-availability (even for a short period) inevitably jeopardises your entire distribution model.

Data drives content creation

From specialist industry publishers through to educational support services, direct relationships with the audience do not merely determine what to push out and when, but also the actual shape of the content those companies create. If the tap is turned off on the customer data, it directly affects your ability to create the relevant material your audience expects.

Is your data storage architecture fit-for-purpose?

Publishers can find themselves hamstrung by legacy data management systems. An upgrade or migration may seem an obvious solution, but when the sector is in a state of flux, the appetite for costly outlay often simply isn’t there. And especially where publications and studios merge, these newly enlarged organisations face a further problem: a sprawling data estate that is difficult and costly to maintain and protect.
