III. CROSS PLATFORM MEASUREMENT INITIATIVE (3MS) (1:15pm-2:00pm)
The Cross Platform Measurement initiative, titled: Making Measurement Make Sense (3MS), was launched in March 2011. ANA, IAB (interactive Advertising Bureau) and the 4A's (American Association of Advertising Agencies) engaged consulting firm Bain & Company and strategic advisory firm MediaLink to independently manage the five month initiative. 3MS is an ecosystem-wide initiative that aims to develop digital metrics and advertising currency that facilitate the cross-platform measurement and evaluation of media.
The lack of a consistent approach to measuring and assessing the effects of digital media has resulted in a cacophony of competing and contradictory measurement systems, contributing to a complex and costly supply chain for the industry. While consumers have embraced digital media and continue to adopt new devices and new media behaviors, the marketing and media business have yet to create the tools necessary keep up with consumers' behavioral changes.
In this session, Duke Fanelli, SVP, Marketing & Communications - ANA will provide an update on this very important industry initiative.
