Data is information and knowledge collected and analyzed for aiding in decision making. Digital data provides clarity on the web, social media, mobile or video audience’s behavior, who they are and what content they want or value. It is used to measure value delivered, to inform what works and what doesn’t and provides the opportunity to predict revenue.

Applying data to digital properties allows personalized content to be served to the visitor based on past browsing history and transactions, in order to help the visitor find what they want when they want it.
