Episode 2: Deciphering the new revenue recognition standard

The latest accounting standards are changing the way technology, media, and telecom companies recognize revenue—more than a change in rules, the new standard demands a change in mindset. In addition to impacting finance departments, the new accounting standard also means big changes for strategy, information technology, human resources, sales and marketing, and tax.

In this episode Joe Talley and Bryan Anderson explore the cross-organizational impact of the new revenue standards, how companies are developing their commission plans, internal and external operational impacts of the standards, managing costs and disclosures, and key points of focus for companies preparing to comply.

It’s more than just accounting and white paper policy process. It’s a big deal to do anything in the end-to-end revenue process.

Listen in to find out how the changes will affect your organization.

Episode 1: Deciphering digital consumption trends

Digital has transformed the way consumers approach entertainment and media consumption. The days of appointment TV, setting DVRs, and losing the remote are fading into the distance. Now consumers can stream shows when they want, where they want them.

This shift has created a new marketplace for content services and is changing the way advertisers market to consumers. How can businesses in the technology, media, and telecommunication industry capitalize on these trends?

In this episode, Kevin Westcott and Scott Lippstreu will discuss how traditional television is losing ground to streaming, how binge watching impacts content distribution, what changes advertisers are taking to reach consumers, and how social media's stronghold on consumers may provide new opportunities for advertising.
