MMA SM2 Innovation Summit

DataXu is proud to sponsor the 2016 MMA SM2 Innovation Summit. Curated by senior brand marketers for their peers, the summit will address the rapid evolution of how consumers discover, engage and purchase every product, service and experience.

The march for mobile transformation is impacting an astonishing array of industries. Disruptors have raised the bar on delivering exceptional user experiences and engaging more intimately with their consumers.

Brands who think of Mobile as just a channel dismiss the unprecedented role it is playing in customers’ lives and diminishes the possibilities it provides for marketers. Mobile is marketing. Mobile is utility. Mobile is connection. Mobile is engagement. Mobile is transformational.

Mobile is the ultimate disruptor and brands need to plan their transformation or risk being transformed.

Join the industry’s most prominent and influential figures at this two-day industry leading conference.

It is no longer about mobile marketing, but marketing in a mobile age.

OMMA Brand Marketers Summit | Cross–Channel Machine & Customer Experiences

At the Summer MediaPost Brand Summit in Lake Tahoe MediaPost brings bright, shiny marketing objects to heel. Marketing technology, DMPs and clouds are the tech du jour, but how do marketers program these alluring machines to serve specific customer experiences? The multi-lane highway of mobile, social and video media are all racing at breakneck speed, but how can brands knit these channels together into more holistic engagements with their customers? Data is supposed to be the “new oil” that fuels this digital economy. But how do marketers avoid mistaking the data the marketplace makes available for the data they really need to define their brand’s own customers?

Agenda Sessions Will Include:

  • Aligning technology to consumer journeys
  • What is this DMP good for anyway?
  • Is this really the data you are looking for?
  • Integrating mobile/social/video cross-channel creative for messaging that engages
  • Leveraging email/messaging for personal connections
  • Apples, oranges, donkeys: can cross-channel metrics and attribution really add up?

Awash in vendor pitches, distracted by new hot things, marketers need to step back and reassert first principles in order to make sense of the new morass. Who is their customer? What are their business goals? At the Tahoe Brand Summit, OMMA will try to re-boot the digital tech machine so that it is re-programmed to serve engagement with your customer, not with the machine itself.

ISMIR 2016 Event Logo

ISMIR 2016 – Is Machine Learning Enough?

DataXu's Vice President of Optimization, Beth Logan, will be hosting and speaking on a panel, "Is Machine Learning Enough?", at ISMIR 2016 in New York, New York.

We live in a world unimaginable even 20 years ago. From our phones we can summon a car, book a vacation and of course access the word’s music to find just those songs we like, even songs we didn’t know we liked. Automated Machine Learning at scale enables these and thousands more applications. But in business, it’s good to know when to stop. It’s not always smart to automate that last, difficult 10% of performance. Indeed in music and other industries, humans often curate the results. Will humans always be in the loop or will the machines eventually take over? Will Machine Learning ever be enough?

The annual Conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval is the world’s leading research forum on processing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data. The ISMIR Conference provides a meeting place for the discussion of MIR-related research. Its main goal is to foster the exchange of ideas across disciplines by bringing together researchers, developers, educators, librarians, students, and professional users.

ISMIR is a non-profit organization which, among other things, oversees the organization of the ISMIR Conference.

2016 ANA/BAA Shopper Marketing Conference

DataXu will be attending the 2016 ANA/BAA Shopper Marketing Conference Presented by Fandango Rewards in Amelia Island, Florida later this month.

Consumer shopping habits are undergoing a transformation. According to a recent Kantar Retail study, digital tools and technologies have changed the balance of power in retailing, shifting power to shoppers. With a wealth of information at their fingertips, shoppers have redrawn the boundaries of retail experiences; they want it all and don’t expect to have to make trade-offs. Shoppers today are more omnichannel, demanding, social & connected, and convenience-oriented than ever before.

More than ever before, retailers and brands need to strategically develop shopper marketing plans and programs to help maximize that shopping experience for consumers. The ANA/BAA Shopper Marketing Conference is certain to bring marketers closer to that goal.

Some notable panels include:

  • How Shopper Marketing Enhances Brand Equity
  • Targeting Brand Experiences
  • Marketing to the Always on Consumer and Shopper
  • Why Entertainment Rewards Can Drive Strong Consumer Awareness

MMA CEO & CMO Summit

DataXu is proud to be a sponsor of the 2016 MMA CEO & CMO Summit in Sonoma, California.

Mobile is more than a communications channel, more than a device. It is the remote control of today’s modern lives and the gateway by which many consumers experience a brand.

The success of an organization’s mobile strategy ultimately lies with the C-suite and their leadership from building internal capabilities and talent, integrating and embracing technology platforms that are instrumental in creating immediate, frictionless and personalized content to allocating and optimizing their media spend. Ultimately it is about achieving mobile maturity faster than your competitors.

This year’s MMA CEO & CMO Summit, the annual think tank for the mobile industry’s top influencers, leaders and decision makers, will showcase the importance and role of the C-suite in reaching mobile maturity. This event will inspire you and present tangible strategies that today’s mobile leaders are using to create mobile expertise internally and captivate consumers in relevant and unique ways that drive increased ROI.
