Big data is the performance marketers dream, from analysing and optimising bidding strategies in DSP's to augmenting data and audience profiles in the DMP, your instant change in sales performance and the visibility ensures  data spend is 100% accountable and transparent.

But when big data is used for brand marketing, the traditional digital metrics of impressions, clicks and audiences mean success becomes far less insightful. In this short session, we'll explore the application and optimisation of real time brand uplift in the digital buying chain.

2.35pm: Total Media - The Hype Cycle: Optimising Big Data

When a new and emerging technology is introduced to a market, it's usually off the back of a massive wave of hyperbole; from the Wii games console, to the recent hype surrounding Google Glass to any Apple product ever produced. The same can be said of Big Data, that much lauded technology hailed by many as the facilitator to revolutionise the media industry. However due to a combined lack of knowledge and in lieu of standardised procedures and metrics, Big Data - for some - is fast becoming the much hyped enabler, that enabled nothing.

Using Gartner's internationally recognised Hype Cycle, Total Media's Chief Strategy Officer, Lucas Brown, will identity the factors driving Big Data into the 'trough of disillusionment’ and examines how we can elevate it up to the 'plateau of productivity' – getting Big Data working effectively and optimising client’s campaigns.

3.15pm: Exchange Lab

Don’t believe everything that people tell you about data and everything that data tells you. It’s all very well collecting lots of it but unless you are collecting right data in sufficient volumes and asking the right questions  it is a waste of server space. Being cool with ‘Big Data’  is not just about gathering as much of it as possible and everything to do with understanding it’s context and relevance, looking for trends and patterns and then applying these data learnings in practical ways. Data should lead us to more informed decision making. Tim will discuss the merits of data within media trading covering the bid landscape within programmatic and  the merits of algorithms and data sets.

Tim Webster, COO, The Exchange Lab
