"To meet this, businesses need to focus on content supply chain backed by intelligent workflow automation, built on a customer-centred strategy and streamlined for the entire content lifecycle," he added.
Moreover, the report said that industry leaders are rethinking and streamlining their content supply chains, which cover content campaign planning, creation, delivery, and data analysis.
About 43 per cent of senior APAC executives say they have already made their content processes more efficient, as efficiency and cost reduction is the focus.
As efforts to accelerate content creation have come at the cost of employee time and freedom, two in five (41 per cent) APAC marketing practitioners cite a lack of time to be creative as a barrier to delivering excellent customer experiences.
