In November of last year, Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger held a keynote presentation in which he outlined the ways that the Walt Disney Company and all of its divisions would focus on the mobile experience. As technology evolves and becomes a larger part of our lives, the Walt Disney Company made a commitment to embrace the newest technologies and to be at the forefront of delivering innovative experiences to customers. At the presentation last year, Iger explains the shift and highlights that this has been a part of his strategic vision all along.
“In the last four or five years — I think about it as the digital-mobile era — we’ve seen breathtaking changes to just about every corner of our business.”
