The Future of Premium Programmatic: Scaling Zero-Party Data

Programmatic Advertising is in a perpetual state of flux. Exciting new channels, buying methods, and success metrics are contrasted with transparency issues, mistrust, and ever-decreasing engagement rates.

Today, the noisy atmosphere and constant concerns of data privacy call again for a new paradigm, a new way where marketers and consumers work together to craft better Marketing and Communication experiences. The idea that is ushering in this new change is Zero Party Data, the newly named data source that refers to consumers telling brands how and when they want to be communicated with. Zero…

Prediction Series: Interview with Anurag Kahol, CTO and Co-Founder at Bitglass

Hi Anurag. Tell us about the biggest disruptions that you see happening in 2020. We will see an increase in the number of M&A deals in 2020. In fact, 79 percent of respondents to Deloitte’s M&A trends 2019 report expect the number of deals they close to rise in the next 12 months – up from 70 percent last year.

How the World’s Three Internets Are Changing Global Marketing

The Price of Personalization: Unpacking the Realities of Consumer-Brand Engagement in the Digital Age

In 2006, Clive Humby coined the phrase “data is the new oil” and since then this has become the catchphrase amongst marketers for the past 14 years. However, what went predominantly unnoticed is the further elaboration he gave on this phrase. Like oil, data is “valuable, but if unrefined it cannot really be used. Oil has to be changed into gas, plastic, chemicals, etc to create a valuable entity that drives profitable activity; so, data must be broken down and analyzed for it to have value”. Even as consumer information…

Let’s Test Your CCPA Preparedness!

On New Year’s Day, the same logic that was used to create GDPR, came stateside when the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was officially put into effect. This legislation provides California residents more control over their personal data. The objective is simple: provide better consumer protections and enhance the respect of privacy by improving transparency regarding the way companies are using their users’ data. When GDPR came into effect, Europe paved the way for regulation, compelling companies to focus on…

The Secret to Great Visitor Management: People Management

Visitor management may seem like a boring and unglamorous aspect of corporate life. But the fact is that it is an important discipline where meaningful interactions and engagements should be the norm. Your firm should ideally implement a personalized digital reception process to greet and welcome your guests warmly when they enter your building.

TechBytes with Jude McColgan, CEO at Localytics

What is the CCPA law? What are the consequences of not complying? Similar to the Massachusetts data breach notification law that went into effect in April, and GDPR before that, CCPA is the latest in a line of user data compliance regulations designed to better protect the data of consumers while they browse the internet. These laws are a direct response to the lack of progress at the federal level for appropriate consumer protections and should serve as a reminder for companies to conduct privacy audits and cross-checks…

CCPA Insights Series Part 1: Understand the Value of First-Party Data

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), enacted in 2018, came into effect from 1 January 2020. It is hailed as one of the strongest data privacy laws in the country, and other states are most likely to follow the path. Together with GDPR, CCPA has disrupted the data economy in the US and EU, with an irreversible impact (mostly positive) on the data operations of IT, Marketing, Sales and Customer Success departments. However, GDPR compliance doesn't mean your CCPA preparedness is unshakeable. You may still need to do…
