Eyeota Annual Index: How Advertisers Are Using Audience Data

by Kevin Tan on

How are advertisers using audience data to drive their online advertising campaigns? Kevin Tan, CEO of Eyeota, summarizes findings from the Eyeota Annual Index in Performancein.

Programmatic budgets continue their ascendancy and, as predicted, future spend is still grabbing the headlines. If programmatic ad-buying is the engine, audience data is the fuel powering it. Why? Because it empowers brands to engage audiences as human beings.

Rather than being a bore at a dinner party, advertisers can liven it up by using audience data to get context and relevancy as the basis for their communications with consumers. In short, programmatic campaigns can only be as good as the data driving them.

So, what data are advertisers purchasing? What audiences are they looking to target? And which are the biggest growth verticals for audience data? These questions – and more – were answered in our first year-on-year index tracking audience data.

What Is A Chief Data Officer - And Do You Need One?

by Dominic Seah on


Kevin Tan, CEO of Eyeota, is quoted in MyCustomer about whether organizations need a chief data officer: 

With data volumes increasing exponentially, a growing number of organisations are appointing chief data officers (CDOs) in the hope that they can improve efficiencies in the way that information is dealt with, and ultimately drive competitive advantages from it.

Analyst house Gartner estimates that the number of CDOs has risen from 400 in 2014 to 1,000 in 2015, and forecasts that as many as 90% of large companies could have a CDO role by the end of the decade.

Explaining this ambitious estimate, Gartner’s research VP Mario Faria says: "Business leaders are starting to grasp the huge potential of digital business, and demanding a better return on their organisations' information assets and use of analytics. It's a logical step to create an executive position — the CDO — to handle the many opportunities and responsibilities that arise from industrial-scale collection and harnessing of data."

Certainly there is strong evidence of a significant appetite for such a role. In an Experian report from 2015, which interviewed 250 CIOs, 90% of respondents said they believed that data is changing the way that they do business. And – critically – nearly half of them (44%) reported that they themselves are facing major challenges with the volumes of data. Read More

Top 6 Myths about Audience Data and Programmatic Ad Buying

by Kevin Tan on

What are some of the most common myths about audience data and programmatic ad buying? Kevin Tan, CEO of Eyeota, writes in Digital Marketing Magazine UK about the top six myths that advertisers and publishers have.

Advertisers are struggling to get their voices heard amongst the crowded digital landscape. At the same time, publishers are competing for the interest of users to gather audience data which would result in targeting them with applicable ads.

“First-party data is superior”

Three types of audience data exist: first, second and third-party. Marketers often presume that the only audience data they need is their own first-party data – whether this is collected from their own CRM data, transactional or location data.

However, this results in restriction. By just focusing on first-party, you will only be able to understand your target audience in the scope of their websites alone and no further. Alongside this, first-party lacks scale, resulting in marketers having to perform lookalike modelling to gain scale, leading to a loss of data quality during the process. The inclusion of high-quality third-party data allows marketers to achieve scale in their data.

International Women's Day: Close, But Not Quite Enough

by Dominic Seah on

Kristina Prokop, Co-Founder of Eyeota, writes in IDG Connect about why we need to celebrate International Women's Day - and what more can be done to cement our status as women working in the tech industry. 

International Women’s Day marks its 26th birthday this year, and there is indeed much to celebrate.

Last year we saw some brilliant strides forward in terms of gender equality: from Shared Parental Leave – allowing parents to take a year off however they like, splitting 37 weeks of statutory parental pay between them – through to the release of Suffragette, which had a female director, producer, screenwriter and largely female crew. Not to mention the boost of female MPs in the 2015 election, jumping from 22% women in the previous election to 29%.

But we’ve still got some way to go.

APAC Inertia Holding Back Adoption of Third-Party Data

by Kevin Tan on

Happy to stick to the original media plans they have been using since day one, advertisers are unwilling to embrace new ways of doing things. In this byliner, Eyeota CEO Kevin Tan discusses how this inertia is holding back brands in Asia-Pacific from tapping third-party audience data.

When we first started Eyeota in 2010, programmatic buying of inventory was starting to take off, but there was a dire lack of third-party audience data. So, the company was born to fill this gap in the market. With additional funding from our recent Series A, which raised USD$7m (£4.85m), we will aim to continue providing high-quality audience data, with scale and reach across the globe.

Data is at the heart of our business and places us at the forefront of market trends in the digital advertising space, especially with the massive potential for audience data usage in Asia-Pacific and significant growth in demand of B2B data worldwide. As of January this year, we’ve seen a year-on-year increase in demand, as indicated by our growth rates in this region, where we grew 184% in Southeast Asia and 186% in the rest of Asia-Pacific markets.

Specifically, countries with the highest demand for B2B audience data include Australia, Singapore, UK, and US. I expect B2B advertisers to continue investing in B2B audience data for targeting online audiences.

Adoption of audience data, however, is not without its challenges. In Southeast Asia, the use of third-party audience data is nascent and key challenges hinder its growth.
