Notes: Close to 1 in 5 (17% of) marketing leaders from around the world say that their organization is producing enormous volumes of digital content and assets, while another 64% are producing moderate volumes. One thing almost all agree on: there is more volume today than 2 years ago, and the volume of their digital content assets will increase again over the next 2 years. The principal reason given by organizations for not being prepared to deal with all the content is the lack of appropriate skilled talent (30% share of respondents), per the survey.
Not far behind, technology deficiencies are considered the top barrier by almost one-quarter (24%) of respondents, followed by lack of clarity in the overall content management and production process.
The study notes that fewer than half (42%) of respondents consider themselves very prepared to manage the volume of digital content they have today.
