It’s Time for AdTech to Get Serious About Data Quality

Everyone in tech is talking about Big Data. Recent decades have seen an enormous shift from data scarcity to overabundance, in which data sets have become impossibly large for humans alone to make sense. We often said that data is the new oil - the most valuable commodity in the world. While that’s true, it fails to bring home an important point – many data sets are useless. Other data might be potentially useful but can’t do much in its raw form. Weak data leads to bad decisions. If we draw upon the wrong data points for…

User experience, multi-channel customer and prospect acquisitions, and ad campaigns fall under the marketing analytics umbrella. With such a range of responsibilities, it’s no wonder why…
