Data, Technology, and Measurement

Among the most important initiatives of the CMO Growth Council are those centered on data, technology, and measurement — the engines that will lead marketers into the future. And yet, this is an area where marketing leaders may not be well-versed.

Working together as an industry, we will harness the power and promise of data and technology to attain peak performance.

The ANA’s Approach

As a founding member of the Digital Advertising Alliance self-regulatory program, the Partnership for Responsible and Addressable Media (PRAM), Making Measurement Make Sense (3MS), and the global Cross-Media Measurement (CMM) initiative, we are uniquely poised to help data-driven marketers fuel growth with a full suite of products and services.

CMO Growth Council

The CMO Growth Council was established in 2018 to assemble the most vibrant, diverse, and dynamic force of chief marketers from some of the world’s most successful brands. Its ultimate aim is to support the international community with a first-of-its-kind roadmap for driving business growth through marketing.
