Prediction: the End of TV as We Know It

A report published by IBM predicts the end of TV as we know it, with a generational chasm emerging between the passive mass audience and leading-edge consumers adopting an individualised viewing experience.

The report observes that consumers have been migrating to more specialised, niche content via cable and multichannel offerings. Now, with increasing competition from convergence in television and telecommunications, the industry is confronting unparalleled complexity, dynamic change and pressure to innovate.

The IBM study concludes that �players within the TV industry sit on the precipice of an impending upheaval that promises to be no less dramatic that that experienced by the music industry�.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
