True program management is a daunting task due to the number of disparate transactional systems involved in tracking the data required.
Experienced media executives manually combine traffic revenue with program management cost information to get a picture of the profitability of current programs. Unfortunately, this does little to model possible purchase scenarios, nor does it track spot rates from sales systems, future rights and costs on proposed program purchases, or projected audiences from proposal systems.
Some analysts use spreadsheets to create rich models, but such ad-hoc approaches are limited. These manual processes are invariably developed by select departments isolating the information they contain. They typically do not consider all appropriate run scenarios, and/or repurposing efforts, and they require continual manual updates.
Furthermore, they do not adequately tie to future sales for accurate pricing and audience information nor do they explore lucrative subsequent resales opportunities.
Ultimately, creating reliable models to accurately reflect future profitability potential is limited by too many independent systems. As a result, the profitability snapshots reside in too many different formats across too many departments to be consolidated into a cohesive solution.
The BIAnalytixTM platform approach is specifically designed to address such issues. This platform extracts, transforms, and loads data from multiple, disconnected transactional systems into a consolidated repository where the information is immediately available for enterprise-wide analysis.
