Technology, Media & Communications

Body

Technology, media and communications companies drive innovations that disrupt every industry, including their own.  Technology companies must build platforms that allow them to rapidly innovate, develop, and deploy the products and solutions needed to drive their business strategies.  This innovation increasingly involves APIs to engage partner development, the internet of things (IOT) that creates previously unavailable information sources and 3D printing which can significantly decrease cost and time to market.  These innovations take place in an increasingly connected world, where communications companies seek to optimize monetization of consumer demand for high-speed data and network availability.  And through these faster networks, media companies are ever transforming to meet changing consumer preferences for content, video, social media and mobile media, while finding innovative ways to deliver the native content and digital advertising that drive revenue.  There are enormous opportunities for leaders that are able to see more deeply into the changing landscape and beyond short-term challenges to position themselves for long-term success. 

 

Protiviti partners with leaders to help them achieve greater confidence in these changing environments.  We seek to understand the unique strengths, risks and opportunities of your organization and where you want to take your business.  We then collaborate with you to build custom solutions that maximize your chances for success and bring a tailored, multi-disciplinary team of professionals that fits your situation and company culture.  While the process is never simple, our goal is, to help you face the future with confidence. 

 

We help technology, media and communications organizations manage critical business challenges to help them face the future with confidence.  Here are some of the most pressing issues we are helping organizations to address.

Cybersecurity

Technology, media and communications companies are often the target of cyberattacks because of their rich customer profiles, payment information and highly visible brands.  Confidence in cybersecurity does not come from knowing nothing will happen, it is achieved by knowing all the things that can happen and preparing both proactive and reactive solutions.  Protiviti provides a holistic approach that defines what is most important to you, helping you protect yourself from unauthorized access and also react quickly and comprehensively when a breach occurs.

Business Transformation

Continuously meeting customer demands through innovation is requirement for technology, media and communications organizations.  Equally important is driving greater efficiency and effectiveness in the back office to maximize available dollars to drive that innovation.  We help you to see the opportunities in fast moving markets, aligning people, processes and technology to transform your organization and customer experience, helping you to face the future with confidence.

Business Intelligence

All technology, media and communications organizations want to improve how they understand, organize and leverage their data assets. The challenge is identifying and capturing information in disparate systems, including those outside a company’s walls, and then organizing and managing this information to create business insights. Protiviti takes a pragmatic “one size does not fit all” perspective. We tailor solutions that fit your organization, enhancing business value through more efficient collection, distribution and usage of information.

Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory changes in revenue recognition standards is top of mind for technology, media and communications companies.  We can help you address these and other emerging trends, along with existing regulatory demands, through innovative solutions that position your organization for sustainable performance and compliance now and in the future. 

Cost and Performance Management

Faster, cheaper and better are not options for most companies, they are imperatives.  In global competitive environments, the ability to make and manage smart capital investments, run efficient back-office operations and manage cash flow are critical.  We help you identify and implement cost management efforts that drive performance, in both good times and those more challenging. 

Transactions, Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions are increasingly defining the technology, media and communications industry.  However, as some organizations grow through consolidation, others are innovating and turning to public and private capital markets to fund their new ideas.  In all these situations, we provide independent advisory and due diligence services, helping you take action to maximize value available today and position you for success in the future. 

Evolution of Internal Controls

In the fast-changing global market, control is critical to success. However, the demands on internal audit and finance functions continue to increase as the expectation today is not just for accurate reporting, but insights that can improve the business.  We can help you steer your company with greater precision and prescience, increasing confidence you are on the right path with world class internal audit and finance functions.
