And while the M&E market's explosive data growth is similar in size and breadth to that of oil and gas, government, health care and other data-heavy sectors, the M&E industry has an abundance of additional challenges to worry about, including accelerating growth in format variety, long-term retention needs and distribution to a variety of different audiences on different devices.
