DRIVING TRANSFORMATION THROUGH HOLISTIC, ALWAYS-ON MEASUREMENT AT KROGER

Without successful analytics adoption, even the most advanced analytics solutions won’t stick. In partnership with 84.51° and Analytic Partners, the Kroger team set out to transition from analytics with limited cross-functional collaboration to a trusted, modernized measurement and optimization discipline built on real-time insight and data-driven forecasting.

In this session, the team will share details about their transition to holistic “always-on” modeling through the adoption of Analytic Partners' Commercial Mix Modeling and Live Models. Kroger, 84.51°, and Analytic Partners will discuss the challenges and principles that drove approximately $100 million in incremental marketing-driven revenue in the program’s first year.

APPLYING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO MARKETING CREATIVE REVIEW

Complying with regulations and minimizing risk is a critical, yet ever-changing job in highly regulated industries like financial services. Creating advertising that is compelling, yet compliant typically means extensive legal reviews, development of terms and conditions, and document quality control. In this session American Express will share how it is developing Artificial Intelligence tools to improve the efficiency of our creative approval process, increase speed to market for our marketing campaigns, and reduce reliance on highly manual review processes.
