NEWJ uses the bipp business intelligence platform to improve the analytics it generates from dozens of OTT streaming services and social media platforms that host its sports, entertainment, breaking news, travel, and political content. Daily data points such as the number of uploads, views, and popular thumbnails are reviewed by NEWJ’s editorial team and used to guide content and channel selections.

According to Shalabh Uphadayay, NEWJ’s Founder, CEO, & Editor-in-Chief, using data to guide NEWJ’s content strategy has changed the way his business operates.

“As a ‘social-first’ publisher, NEWJ enables its data and tech teams with the tools for maintaining a unified, flexible data repository for storing and accessing data, and bipp has played a key role in helping us process and visualize data at scale.

“We have been utilizing the platform’s data models to process our internal and external data for visualization and presentation. We have been able to analyze data on one interface using bipp services of over 60K unique videos with weekly production of more than 500 videos on multiple social media platforms,” said Upadhyay.

Prior to selecting bipp, NEWJ’s analytics team created new joins to connect rows from multiple tables for day-to-day process management reports. Today, NEWJ relies on bipp’s data modeling layer to help generate complex reports. This takes significantly less time as there’s no need to rewrite queries. The resulting reports help NEWJ’s editorial team select appropriate, audience-specific content that then is published on several platforms in various languages across multiple channels and pages.

bipp-generated charts, graphs, and dashboards are embedded in NEWJ’s in-house content management system, which offers a wide range of filter options and are also shared across NEWJ’s teams as insightful data in excel/.csv sheets.

According to bipp’s CEO and Co-Founder, Angshuman Guha, NEWJ represents a new generation of data-driven companies.

“There’s pressure on all businesses to make better use of data. This is especially true in the media sector, where strategic and tactical decisions need to be based on the latest information.

“Modern BI tools with features like data models allow analysts to turn disparate databases into single sources of truth based on the company’s business logic. This speeds up decision-making, which is critical for 24×7 industries,” said Mr. Guha.
