"SO NOW WHAT?" A COLLECTIVE APPROACH TO THE COOKIE CONUNDRUM

Naturally, moving beyond the use of cookie targeting and universal identifiers has given way to a lot of questions as advertisers and publishers try planning for an unknown future.

Yet, as we move closer to the proposed cookie-deadline, industry stakeholders have started to embrace the spirit of positive change. Today, leaders from all sectors of the digital industry are paving the way for new approaches aimed at helping advertisers reach the people they care about–in increasingly consumer-centric ways.

Join Scott Kozub, Head of Audience Product at Oracle Advertising, for a fresh perspective around the future of identity and what it means to deliver a true portfolio approach to collectively deliver the scale, fidelity, reach, and insights that are demanded of modern marketing organizations in 2021.

CONSUMER VS CUSTOMER: A PARADIGM SHIFT FOR DATA IN CPG

In a digital-first era where those furthest upstream in data collection win, CPG manufacturers often find themselves in the precarious position of being overly dependent on aggregated data from third parties.

Neither manufacturers nor retail customers exist without the consumer – together, we must evolve to meet the ever-changing expectations of our consumers in an environment that’s experiencing disruption like never before.

UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE – HOW A TRUSTED BRAND INFORMS & DELIVERS WITH DATA

The story of data is one of rapid and continual change. Information has always been critical for businesses. With rising market competition, companies today must compete with each other on customer experience, customer acquisition, and customer retention. But many struggle in managing to break down the silos between data sets, missing out on a truly holistic view of their consumers and marketing touchpoints, and the ability to activate this data on media investments in real-time. The impact of failure to activate on the data can be catastrophic and we know who it affects the most: the customer. The USPS, has been at the forefront in his organization of developing data strategies and platforms that integrate the use of data across multiple formats. They will provide insight on bridging offline to online data for a more holistic view and address the data barriers that prevent organizations from using data to fuel real-time decision-making to improve efficiencies, drive innovation, and enhance the customer experience.
