PROGRAMMATIC – SEEING THROUGH THE FINANCIAL FOG

With the rapid adoption of programmatic media, the supply chain has quickly become complicated — regarding agencies, trading desks, demand-side platforms, supply-side platforms, data management platforms, exchanges, and publishers. To many, the result is a financial “fog.” ANA, the Association of Canadian Advertisers, AD/FIN Solutions, and Ebiquity PLC commissioned a study to investigate the costs and economics of the programmatic ecosystem and to explore the lack of transactional transparency in many programmatic buys.  This was reported by multiple advertisers and highlighted in last year’s K2 Intelligence study on media transparency in the U.S. advertising industry.  In this session, we will reveal key findings from this programmatic study and provide action steps for marketers.

Data-Powered Partnerships: How Data Can Shape Media, Content and Product Strategies

Billions of dollars have shifted into data-driven marketing and native content, but the industry has largely leveraged both tactics in very different ways: data for efficient audience reach and scale, and native content for building awareness and more emotive storytelling.  Large publishers have now built the infrastructure needed to harness their first-party data to understand their audiences more granularly, and brands like Conagra and Reynolds Consumer Products are leveraging this data to help understand their own target audiences.  In this panel, Meredith, Conagra and Reynolds Consumer Products will share insights from their cross-platform partnership, in which data is helping shape not just media strategy, but content and product strategy as well.
