Folio: The 2012 Magazine Manufacturing and Production Technology Survey


von Readex Research & Folio: Mag

Die Magazinbranche kämpft
- gegen die Veränderungen im Marketing- und Werbeverhalten der werbenden Unternehmen,
- gegen die Veränderungen im Informationsverhalten und in der Mediennutzung der Leser (Nutzer),
- um qualifizierte Fach- und Führungskräfte
- gegen finanzielles Ungemach, sei es bei den Einnahmen, den Renditen oder der Schuldenlast aus Fehlinvestitionen, aus Versäumnissen rechtzeitig auf Veränderungen zu reagieren und aus Eigentümerwechseln mit Finanzierungsmodellen jenseits von gut und böse.

Die Readex / Folio: Studie bestätigt wieder einmal, Medienhäuser (hier Magazinverlagen in USA) laufen - wenn Kopf in den Sandstecken und langes Abwarten nicht hilft - am liebsten internationalen Technologieanbietern hinterher (einige schließen diese sogar in ihr Morgengebet ein) und wundern sich dann, das diese ihr eigenes Geschäft betreiben und weiterentwickeln.

Wir teilen die Einschätzung, dass die geschaffenen, verfügbaren Werkzeuge für nicht Printerzeugnisse der Verlage noch in den Kinderschuhen stecken und wundern uns gleichzeitig, warum Verlage Millionen in Eigenentwicklungen stecken, deren konzeptionelle Idee bis zu Fertigstellung und dem Einsatz schon längst überholt ist. Warum den Kunden (und ihrem Erfolg) so wenig Beachtung geschenkt wird, warum man die Kunden und ihr Business, ihre Anforderungen so sträflich außen vor lässt, ist eine weitere Hypothek welche viele Unternehmen und ihre Verbände leichtfertig aufnehmen.

Hier einige Ergebnisse aus der jährlichen Umfrage "The 2012 Magazine Manufacturing and Production Technology Survey" - die ausführlichen Ergebnisse [EN] gibt es auf foliomag.com

Anmerkung: 
die Teilnahme an dieser Umfrage war 2012 deutlich geringer als 2011 und in die Ergebnisse sind nur 144 auswertbare Fragebogen ausgewertet - die der Consumer- und B2B-Verlage   



100% der verkauften Auflage liefern 42 % der Teilnehmer ausschließlich als gedruckte Ausgabe. Durchschnittlich liefern B2B Verlage 78 % und Consumer-/Special Interest Verlage 88 % der Auflage in der gedruckten Version.



19 % der Teilnehmer berichten von einem erhöhten Budget (vs. 14 % in 2011), wobei aber der Durchschnittswert der Investitionen in neue Produktionstechnologien deutlich zurück geht.



Interessant und ein wenig erschreckend ist der Level des Einsatzes (bzw. Nichteinsatz) von ausgewählten Technologien


... und die Zufriedenheit mit den eingesetzten Technologien



Den kompletten Beitrag gibt es auf Folio:


P.S.
Anfang der 80 Jahre war unser Systemhaus eines der ersten der Ventura Publisher und Pagemaker hier in Deutschland eingeführt und in Seminaren und Workshops Verlagen, Satzstudios und Druckereien näher gebracht hatte. Ich bezweifle sehr, dass der Markt den Anbietern und Nutzern 30 Jahre Zeit lässt um auch mit ihren WEB / Mobile Produktionsmittel "sehr oder einigermaßen zufrieden zu sein"

Motorola's Media Study Reveals Disappearing Generation Gap

2009 Media Engagement Barometer
commissioned by Motorola’s Home & Networks Mobility business



Consumers are interviewed in relation to a new study that reveals a disappearing generational gap in media consumption habits.

From the results

- Connectivity is more of a lifestyle issue. Being accessible at all times is seen as a necessity across generations (Millennials, 79 percent; Gen Xers, 64 percent; Boomers, 65 percent).

- There is a two-way dialogue between consumers of all ages as they engage with technology products and share their experiences. The majority of Americans report influencing the decisions of their children (75 percent), friends (74 percent), colleagues (67 percent) and parents (58 percent).

- Parents, grandparents and children alike are actively engaged in the tech sphere of influence. Gen X and Boomer parents reveal that they are influencing their children’s tech habits (Gen Xers, 87 percent and Boomers, 79 percent) even more than their Gen X (62 percent) and Millennial (76 percent) children influence their habits.

"Created by David Merrill and Jeevan Kalanithi at the MIT Media Lab, Stables are “cookie-sized computers with motion sensing, neighbor detection, graphical display, and wireless communication. They act in concert to form a single interface: users physically manipulate them - piling, grouping, sorting - to interact with digital information and media.

Lord Chief Justice says the internet generation could be unsuitable as jurors

Heise Online has a great report on Sir Lord Igor Judge, Chief Justice (UK). He sees lots of problems ahead

Lord Judge wondered how long it would be before some of them asked for the information to be provided in forms that adapt to modern technology.

That is like in our industry. Many of us hope, that our readers & advertisers never ask to provide information & services in forms that adapt to modern technology ... ;-)
