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.

Deloitte’s most recent biannual survey of more than 300 CMOs found that an investment in the “right tech” is a top priority for driving organic revenue growth. Among available tactics, technology-driven efforts to drive personalization, or messages tailored to individual shoppers’ preferences, have emerged as an essential strategy for growing companies.

Bringing marketers together to learn from each other and debate new approaches and solutions to industry hurdles.

A benefit of ANA membership, committee meetings feature a mix of member case studies, perspective from outside experts, and benchmarking/best-practice sharing that drive thought leadership on key industry issues. Each ANA committee meets three to four times per year and can be attended in person or remotely. Depending on the committee, 10 to 30 participants may attend — big enough for diversity of opinion, yet small enough for more intimate exchanges.
