We miss our in-person meet ups for eSage Group’s Marketing Analytics Speaker Series but we are thrilled to host our first virtual event ever! eSage Group’s Los Angeles Marketing Analytics Group is excited to present panelists Mikel Davis, Director of Applied Analytics at NBCUniversal and Jay Deng, Director of Data Science at AXS. Join us online for a panel discussion on May 26th as Mikel and Jay discuss “Delivering Entertainment in a Fully Digital World – What is the New Normal?”

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we do everything. The entertainment world has been especially impacted by the pandemic. Traditionally, the industry heavily relied on in-person performances from concerts to trips to the movie theater and while the transition to streaming media online had taken off, this pandemic has forced everyone to embrace the concept of going digital.

This makes us question what the future of data analytics in media will look like? While our current situation makes that answer even more nebulous but it’s clear that the future of media creation, distribution, and consumption will be increasingly data-driven and optimized.

During this panel we’ll ask the tough questions, such as:
• How has the lock down impacted the entertainment industry so far? What are some of the long-term implications?
• Where is data analytics making the biggest impact on the entertainment industry?
• How are is content streaming changing the game for analytical insights?
• And more!

Join us at this virtual session to get insight from experts operating on the cutting edge of data analytics and data science in media & entertainment!

Our Panelists include:
• Mikel Davis, Director, Applied Analytics at NBCUniversal – LinkedIn
• Jiajie (Jay) Deng, Director, Data Science at AXS – LinkedIn

• Kim Vignola, Senior Data Scientist at eSage Group – LinkedIn
