The top strategic priorities and the most common barriers to success
Consumers interact with your brand across a dizzying number of channels, touchpoints and devices. The average person today has four to six connected devices and switches constantly from one to the other. It’s harder than ever to know whether your ads and other marketing tactics are reaching the right audience—or making an impact. The average marketer doesn’t have the ability to consolidate data to understand the influence of touchpoints across digital and traditional channels.
At the same time, an industry-wide focus on enhancing consumer privacy and data security has raised the bar for trust and transparency. New regulations and technology changes make collecting, tracking, measuring and other data-related practices more challenging.
For this report, Nielsen asked 14 industry experts two questions to help marketers navigate this challenging environment:

They all claim to organize and center around data. And they all promise big results.
So how do you figure out what’s best for your company—what’s going to move you
toward your business goals?
The first step is understanding the difference between Customer Data Platforms and Data Management Platforms. This latest white paper from Lytics explains what CDPs and DMPs really are and how they’re different, and outlines the unique value of each technology.
