Overview

What is data activation? It’s marketers using valuable data and customer insights to power the customer experience across all marketing channels.

Data In. Unlock Value. Data Out.

Data Activation is the concept of unlocking value in data through development of insights and turning those insights into action. Data-driven marketing is not a new concept. But using (DMPs), marketers are using big data to inform their marketing activity. A DMP is quickly shifting from a “nice to have” solution to a “must have” solution. Data has quickly become a core strategy and will drive marketing efforts for many years to come.

Here are the three stages of data activation:

1. Data In
Get data from any location and bring it into a centralized platform within a single structure so that it can be used in aggregate. Data comes from any number of sources. A marketer can aggregate data from different locations such as websites, mobile sites and apps, offline databases or CRM systems, media impressions, transactional data, and more.

2. Unlock Value
Once that data is in a single location, you unlock the value by running analytics on the data and use it to drive advertising and optimization for outbound marketing. Examples can include audience profile analysis, look-alike modeling, and act-alike modeling as well as other opportunities.

3. Data Out
This is one of the most difficult elements of data activation and requires the most work. But with deep integrations throughout the ad and marketing eco-system, you can share data segments that have been developed with marketing partners, drive efficient customer outreach, eliminating waste, and get higher performance on the back-end.

Data Activation Is Unique

Data Activation is a combination of all these stages and a DMP platform makes all of it possible. Every company that works with the DMP creates their own 100% exclusive solution due to the unique nature of the data that comes in, the combination of products being used to unlock the value, and the unique partners where the data is shared.

Data Activation Scale = Data Unchained

Data unchained the separation of the data layer from execution inside your enterprise marketing stack. This philosophy is is based on scale and efficiency. If you operate with an execution partner, like a DSP (Demand-Side Platform) or a SSO (Site-Side Optimization), and give them sole access to your data for targeting and modeling purposes, you risk being efficient with that single partner alone. In that case you restrict learning and insights from every other partner.

Any given marketer works with an average of 18 different execution partners across various forms of media. You need a single execution platform that’s integrated with every major DSP, portal, social network, mobile ad server, video ad server, or publisher in the world. This gives you the freedom to unchain your data and activate it across any media partners you desire and to manage media budgets based on performance rather than any conflict of interest created by using a partner providing a data platform in combination with a single media execution platform.
