Data, Analytics, and Technology

The proper use of data and technology represents one of the most powerful opportunities brands have to get close to customers and improve growth.

The ANA is focused on creating a full suite of products and services to help data-driven marketers fuel growth through the informed, effective, and responsible use of data and technology.

The Challenge

Organizations are increasingly becoming data led. Studies have shown that companies who have developed a comprehensive data strategy and analytics capability, achieve growth at a rate higher than companies who have not. For today's marketers, it has become essential to develop a deeper understanding of data and analytics in order to create actionable insights, better decisioning and drive sustainable growth for the long term. And yet, this is an area where marketing leaders are not well-versed.

The ANA’s Response

The ANA is focused on creating a suite of consultative products and services designed to assist marketers in making effective and responsible business decisions when using data and technology to fuel differentiated and sustainable growth. We learn, grow, and are more successful together as part of the ANA's Data & Analytics, MarTech, Marketing Futures, and Addressability practices, and the member-driven initiatives they facilitate such as The Partnership for Responsible Addressable Media, #EngageResponsibly, the ANA International ECHO Awards, and more.

by Matthew Fanelli, 6 days ago

Effectively gathering and quantifying consumer data is no longer a luxury, but a necessity in today’s market. Huge quantities of data can be amassed at dizzying speeds, and the amount of campaign information accessible to marketers has grown at an exponential rate. Between 2010 and 2020, the amount of data utilized by marketers increased from 1.2 trillion gigabytes to 59 trillion gigabytes, according to Forbes. However this statistic does not take into account the ways in which that data was communicated.
