Strategy Analytics Announces Partnership with D. I. S. Consulting

by David Mercer | Apr 07, 2009

Strategy Analytics today announces a partnership with D. I. S. Consulting Corporation to offer industry research and advisory services in media technology, distribution, production and content management industries. D. I. S. Consulting is the global leader in research and consulting to the professional media production and broadcast industries. Doug Sheer, DIS’s CEO, is an industry veteran with a background in the creative industry (as camera person, editor, graphics designer, and animator) as well as research and consulting. One of his claims to fame is to have shared an Oscar (with Dan Perri Productions) for motion picture titles for “The Exorcist”. He currently serves as Chair of the New York Section of the SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers), and founded and chairs Artists Talk On Art, one of the longest running arts discussion forums in the US. Strategy Analytics will combine its existing leadership in consumer media and technology markets with DIS’s expertise in media production and technologies at a time when the traditional broadcast and professional industry is going through a period of some turmoil. The economic downturn hit vendors like a tidal wave in Q4 last year, and companies are in urgent need of clarity and direction as they re-group in preparation for the hoped-for upturn. Apart from the economy, the transition to internet media is also looming in the background. While no one is pretending that the broadcast sector will die a rapid death, neither can it afford to ignore the potential impact of web-based media consumption on traditional industries. We are excited to be working with Doug and his team to assess the scale of these challenges and to help the industry prepare for the opportunities that lie ahead.
