You probably heard that life isn’t easy for US students. College fees now exceed $45,000 per year, which made student loans the new normal. This also means that school grads often have to postpone higher education and work multiple jobs to scrape up some money.

All of these come on top of trying to maintain good grades, often while working part-time jobs. If this seems like a lot of pressure, that’s actually the reality that 500,000 American students face every year.

So how can you stay on top of all of this? According to our new client, you can take part of the hassle out of the students’ lives with the right software product.

5 Software Development Trends Shaping the Media Industry in 2019

Software development trends in media in 2019

Deloitte says there were 250+ media streaming channels in the US in 2018, with the average user subscribing to only three or four. This makes for fierce competition. How do you win in a market like this?

Fixing content discovery seems like a workable tactic. According to Deloitte, people spend up to an hour a day searching for content, which leaves plenty of room for optimization. Two traditional strategies that media businesses pursue are exploration of new formats and expansion of content reach. Gaining user trust is yet another course of action that has become painfully relevant amid the 2018’s influx of fake news and privacy breaches.

Each of these represent approaches and strategies that our clients follow. A significant portion of the AgileEngine portfolio are products for media brands, including viral video platforms and global newspapers and magazines. Let’s see what technologies can help companies of this type succeed in the crowded media space of 2019.

Take Superdata, for example. In early 2017, the analytics company projected a $4.9 billion revenue in consumer VR by the end of the year. Fast forward a year, and the actual figure quoted by the same company proved to be $2.2 billion.
